Ned Kelly Reviews

WBAI Web Radio

Much as late 19th century Australian outlaw Ned Kelly was a charismatic figure who won the adulation of the Irish immigrant masses there, Heath Ledger as that romantic revolutionary of the film's title breathes astonishing vigor into the role.

Director Jordan fails to deliver a film worthy of such mythical figure.

The story might have more resonance with Australians, since compared to American folk heroes Ledger's Ned Kelly comes off as a bit square and self-serious.

[A] tricky film, punctuated by bursts of staccato surrealism and bitter humor...

Rises above its own shortcomings through Heath Ledger's electric embodiment of Ned.

Ned Kelly suggests that not only do you not need anything of interest to watch, but you don't even need to see it at all.

Ultimately, Jordan's vision is so murky that Ned Kelly remains as foreign to us as wombat stew.

Details such as the film's stark Victoria locations and the clunky suits of steel armor the Kellys fashion for the climactic showdown root things in a distinctive time and place, allowing viewers to experience the familiar storyline in a fresh way.

A hefty dose of Australian history and legend, magnificently enhanced by a landscape that serves as more than just travelogue.

If Ned Kelly is supposed to be an anti-hero to root for, his speeches border on parody and his cause is really unclear.

This is a traditional western, not a great one...

Offers a couple of well-filmed showdowns and lots of pretty landscapes, but you need more than scenic views and stylish action to chronicle a life, especially one as controversial as Kelly's.

A leaden retelling of the legend of Australia's Jesse James that has understandably been sitting on the shelf for a couple of years.

A handsome, action-packed biographical drama with a credibility gap wider than the screen.

Ledger, talking into his chest for much of the film in an apparent effort to lend gravity to his performance, is pretty stiff, but so is Jordan's direction.

To get swept up by the hagiographic treatment and to be all that interested in every nuance of this fellow's development, one might really need to be Australian.
