Like so many of these super-serious Australian crime dramas, it starts out well, with a tense, foreboding tone and unpredictable plot, but then ends up losing control of said plot, killing off its most interesting characters and ending up in a dead end of implausibility. Mendelsohn's character becomes particularly thin in this regard. "Why is this apparently smart criminal doing this dumb thing? Oh, right, just to move the plot forward." Several moments teeter on the edge of full-blown "idiot plot". I mostly dug it overall because it works so well in the first half, and there's always an effectively tense synergy between the direction and the dope score, but it's about 20 minutes too long, and it gets very muddled around the second act.
