Critic Reviews for Newcastle
A glum and slack family drama, Newcastle is punctuated by bright bursts of dreamy surfing images, but not enough to make the film rewarding.
Overall, [Castle] has captured what I remember of the fantasy of the classic Newcastle adolescence -- all day at the beach, string bikinis and juicy blond teenagers.
The drama is a very low-slung affair, with the interconnections between characters poised to supply us with the only reasons to watch, other than the bodies, the landscape and the water.
Cinematographer Richard Michalak's gorgeous water-based action shots guarantee the young target audience will want to head straight out for surf lessons, but there's even less dramatic heft here than in the superior Blue Crush.
