Critic Reviews for Ned Kelly (Ned Kelly, Outlaw)

All Critics (7)

Clunky, slow Mick Jagger starrer directed by Tony Richardson.

January 1, 2008

Curiously though, as it so often does, the rare convergence of everything gone wrong makes for pretty compulsive viewing.

This film is worth seeing for those who want to see what Mick Jagger looks like when sporting an Abe Lincoln beard.

Audience Reviews for Ned Kelly (Ned Kelly, Outlaw)


An interesting movie, which tries to show that Mick Jagger is a brilliant actor, I wouldn't say he's that good, but he's alright. The story is pretty good. It's a pretty good movie, but it could be better.

I enjoyed it because I tend to like Westerns, and this is one, even if it's Australia rather than the US. The movie struggles along though, so unless you are a fan of Jagger or the Western genre don't bother.

The interesting and creative casting of Mick Jagger works. He does surprisingly well in the role. Some of the music in the film is great, but it does get a little irritating after awhile. Good story, but it does tend to drag and I found myself losing interest on more than one occasion.
