Matt's Movie Reviews

Regardless of the credibility of Read's exploits, Andrew Dominick has crafted a film that plunges his audience into the depths of Australia's criminal underworld.

Apesar de soar incompleto, o filme jamais deixa de fascinar graças à atuação magistral de Eric Bana - que, em vários momentos, me fez lembrar do jovem Robert De Niro.

The fact that Chopper is so engrossing and effective stems from the powerful performance of Eric Bana.

Worth seeing simply as a flamboyant cinematic exercise that explores the possibilities of the medium in ways you won't have experienced before.

Bana radiates the sort of warped charisma that explains how an ultraviolent convict could capture the public's imagination.

Like a lot of video-game violence, much of Chopper is meant to be perversely funny. But it's a different kind of perversely funny.

[Read's] unpredictability lends Chopper considerable suspense.

Bana's gift -- and his triumph -- is that he makes us somehow care about this magnetic monster, without ever letting us feel as if we've figured him out.
