Red Hill Reviews

Red Hill only truly works when it retains a hard edge and a straight face. So why does Hughes insist on blowing so many raspberries?

[Robert] Rodriguez has made stuff like this work by demonstrating a healthy sense of self-parody. Hughes has yet to master that.

The influence of numerous film legends ... burdens material that already feels derivative and uninspired.

However arguably noble his film's intent to redress historical grievance, a poorly filmed shoot-out is never more than exactly that.

The suspense that director Patrick Hughes manages to mount remains low-grade throughout and the plot never becomes entirely plausible.

...a missed opportunity of disappointingly demonstrable proportions...

Former commercials director Hughes probably relies a tad too much on his old job for the whiplash editing...but there's a lot going on here that's worth a look.

Red Hill starts brilliantly but tails off halfway through and fails to deliver on its initial promise, despite a strong performance from Ryan Kwanten.

Starts off like a lean, mean Walter Hill movie but ends up going a bit Blazing Saddles.

Rehashing the cliches from several beaten-to-death movie categories doesn't add up to much.

Nothing fresh or original here, but director-writer Patrick Hughes enjoys a heightened sense of detail, making the most of dark bars and the interiors of stalled vehicles.

Aside from splicing together a policier and a Western, there's no spin here, just a checklist of clichés...

Hollywood & Fine

An Australian thriller that's never quite as clever or original as it seems to think...as a movie, it's decidedly unthrilling.

As short on originality and sustained tension as it is long on striking widescreen vistas and impressive technical smarts.

Though Hughes overplays his directorial hand occasionally, Red Hill is still the finest Australian western since The Proposition.

Slant Magazine

The Australian high-country setting of this blood-soaked western, brimming with jagged edged rock faces and menacing mountainsides, evokes the genre universe of director Anthony Mann.

An ambitious Aussie Western with a chilling edge, Red Hill aims high and almost hits its target.

From its wide panoramic vistas to its tight close ups, Hughes has created a suspenseful setting.

Trespass

The production values are first rate and the action, heavenly influenced by old-fashioned westerns, is brutal and perfectly staged.

This is a fun film that introduces Hughes as a director to look out for.
