The Man from Snowy River is worth a small "yippee!" It's a real honest-to-goodness western, the likes of which haven't been seen in these parts for a long spell.
Why not make the story more realistic, deal with the characters as people, and stop trying to get cute?
The combination of its elements touches the Australian heart, elevating the ethos of a big, wonderful land and its hard headed, big hearted people on the screen
...classic entertainment for families.
This is a coming-of-age-story about a young rancher named Jim Craig who is left to find work at the Harrison Cattle Ranch after his father dies in a horsing incident. Whilst there, he falls in love with the boss's daughter Jessica. Kirk Douglas plays the dual role of two estranged brothers, one a hermit brother nurturing a dark family secret who lives up in the mountains among the wild horses, who has been searching for gold, the other a rich man who appears to have everything he needs. They share a "dark history" as they were both in love with the same woman. Filmed against a backdrop of a stunning and picturesque Australian wilderness, this movie is sure to appeal to horse lovers and fans of the Western genre.
This movie is set in the 1880's in the Australian frontier, the acting and story line are good with brillant scenery and musical score.
Outstanding Aussie 'family' western with Tom Burlinson as the young man who falls in love with his boss's daughter. Kirk Douglas has great fun playing twin roles: a wealthy rancher and his one-legged prospector brother.
The lavish scenery and broad scope, and the clever cinematography that captures these help to make it visually stunning. The riders hurtle down near-vertical mountain drops, getting maximum fuel efficiency from their horses, risking life and limb, and creating good tension at times. The characters are interesting, and are competently played by an excellent cast; Burlinson is terrific as the eager but inexperienced Jim Craig, Sigrid Thornton made a living through the 80s by playing pretty country thangs, while it's difficult to imagine anyone except Jack Thompson playing the important role of Clancy.
Predictable at times. Didn't care for the ending. I hope the second movie ends better.
