Audience Reviews for Hammers over the Anvil
"As a whole I was pretty disappointed with Hammers Over the Anvil, while it's visually stunning (referring to the Australian scenery, not Russell's rear end) the rest of the film is extremely bland. I found the story quite boring, slow and a little scattered." This film is part of my 26 days of Russell Crowe please visit the following link for the full review. http://www.commonsensemoviereviews.com/2010/04/hammers-over-anvil-1993.html
The result with its voice-over documenting the artistic growth of the teenager, its glimpses of half-understood sexuality, and its trail of conflict between father and son - isn't badly made, just extremely familiar.
