Australia Day Reviews

  • Apr 24, 2018

    This is one of the best Australian films for years. Has the same kind of feel as Jindabyne. Taut acting and directing. Bang on visceral performances. Bryan Brown is at his best. Support cast are superb and believable. This film deals with the current racist conservative xenophobic backlash going on in this country. It’s like a new Romper Stomper for the 2000’s. It will be too close to the bone for a lot of One Nation supporters. Thank Vishnu Bryan Brown didn’t stay in Hollywood after Cocktail and continues to make such high quality films, instead of crap like Thor and The Avengers. 10/10 Bryan....keep it up mate! 53% rating? What rubbish!

    Australia Day tries to display societal flaws but get's lost in its first minutes with uneven storytelling, off-point acting, and overreliance on cinematography.

    This was a very powerful story that does hit a cord that is real and with a great cast. The film is fast paced and moves quickly and editing is top notch. Director Kriv Stenders has done a great job as the writer Stephen M. Irwin. Worthwhile to look at. Film Critic reporter Caroline Russo

    Absolute rubbish Political propaganda film which failed badly would be the kindest description. Unrealistic portrayal and reflection of Australia and Australians. Best spend that 90 mins of your life elsewhere.
