It holds a mirror up to contemporary Australian society and offers those unfamiliar with its tensions a relatively factual dramatic experience.
A story with plenty of sparks and no fire.
Taking one of the most loaded terms in Australian history as its titular provocation, Australia Day asks us to think about what one might be running towards - and whether ineffective systemic management of inbred injustice can amount to anything more...
This is a busy film... perhaps too much so. I like things "thick and fast" but with so many storylines, there's not a lot of time to question the actions of these characters.
Australia Day is a few cans short of a barbecue.
Run Lola Run meets Gran Torino; breathtakingly fast-moving, a very well-made thriller.
Australia Day is a gruelling journey through the streets of Brisbane and subterranean national prejudices, but it does have a lot of heart and features some excellent performances.
The darker side of human nature and of the Australian character get a searing going over in this outstanding, topical, compelling drama designed to make you feel and think deeper about the underside of Australian life. Superbly directed by Kriv Stenders.
[Bryan] Brown uses his capacity for stillness with great effect, to suggest weight in his character.
Initially, the story is carried along by the momentum of its characters. But when they run out of steam, so does the screenplay.
A big, broiling stew of complex thought, Australia Day is a provocative, intelligent film that dares to pick, probe and ask a lot of burning questions.
A series of predictable story arcs, rudimentary characters and simplistic viewpoints on racism continuously weaken the good intentions behind the creation of Australia Day.
