Critic Reviews for Broken Hill
It's a picture with the ambitions of a Billy Elliot but the execution of an August Rush.
Broken Hill, with its picture-postcard shots of the vast Outback, looks good and fills a niche for families.
The predictability is draining, hurting the lasting impact of this strange tale of unlikely musicianship. However, there's a curious spirit to the feature that makes it something to enjoy.
For all its flaws and despite the limiting premise, this music-themed drama works better than it should.
Audience Reviews for Broken Hill
CLAP! CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!..I sure love a good movie that has a FANTASTIC ending. This is one of those movies. Absolutely satisfying, fun, and enjoyable concert ending. The movie itself was very well done, also. Good characters. Good cast. Good music. Timothy Hutton with an Australian accent? yep. Done pretty well, albeit a little hard to get use to. All in all, though, a rather good little Australian flick.
Some family films are a struggle to sit through, this is not one of them. Great characters, intriguing conflicts and great use of Aussie scenery add up to a film that's fun to watch for both adults and kids. Timothy Hutton and Alexa Vega are solid as always, Luke Hill is a charming lead, but Rhys Wakefield as Scott and Andy McPhee as Bear are standouts. The music ain't so bad either.
