The snail's-pace horizontal pans, under-the-flight-path score, and other arthouse affectations had collided with the overall unlikeability of the major characters violently enough to make me consider jumping ship.

What is it about Australian filmmakers and down-and-dirty, no-holds-barred crime dramas? Let's not figure out why they're so good at them and simply enjoy.

An ugly film whose ambitions are never matched by its creators' limited abilities.

This movie grabs you by the throat and squeezes.
