Movie Info

The biopic depicts Flynn's roust-about early life in Australia, before he became an internationally famed celebrity. In those days he was an adventurer, opium smuggler, gambler, street fighter, womanizer, and gold prospector. The film, based on Flynn's early autobiography "Beam Ends," was written for the screen by Large and Luke Flynn, who found the inspiration as a result of their travels through Australia in the footsteps of Luke's iconic grandfather.

A disgracefully entertaining romp that packs an unexpected emotional wallop.

The film sits somewhat uncomfortably between serious and silly. They aren't aided by dodgy CGI that can't disguise the production's limited resources.

This is an ambitious film from an important director that, like its subject, is far from perfect. But it deserves credit for just being there.

Why make a movie about the pre-movie-star Errol?

Oct 12, 2018 | Full Review…

If the source material is an obvious myth, the movie version - which also includes a yachting odyssey in search of lost gold - is a tone-deaf mess. Avoid.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

This is a fun film constructed in a smart way: an anti-high art picture that happily prioritises embellishing legend over recreating life.
