Romper Stomper is A Clockwork Orange without the intellect.
June 24, 2006
The cheap 'message' of the ending fails to salvage a film that at best is well-meant but misguided, at worst, flashy and garbled.
January 1, 2000
It's merely another violent art house picture, slumming modishly in the world of psycho-personalities, and exhibiting only occasional flashes of originality.
January 1, 2000
Exploits the frustration, anger and violence of a despicable subculture while excusing the glorification of its hate aesthetic as necessary "reporting."
January 1, 2000
Perhaps writer-director Geoffrey Wright meant to show this motley crew as doomed from the start, but this obvious dead-end attitude also makes the group's repulsive antics all the more predictable.

While the film often draws comparisons to A Clockwork Orange, Romper Stomper doesn't carry the gravity that the Malcolm McDowell classic does.

At times very powerful and thought-provoking film, but this impression might be diluted with some of less fortunate creative decisions.

Romper Stomper is a convincing depiction of subculture, and one that dares to present these figures as real, troubled individuals rather than stereotypes.

I like to think of it as a fury-filled documentary on how hate is not just an American preoccupation. Remember, this is the way things are -- deal with it.

A genuinely excellent film, horrifying and touching and beautiful in a bloody sort of way. A bit like real life, really.

Brutal but powerful.
January 13, 2004
The film [has] a raw, sometimes discomfiting immediacy... The cast attacks their roles with matching intensity.

Given his formidable presence and equal talent, it was only a matter of time before New Zealand-born, Australian-raised Russell Crowe made the mainstream American breakthrough he enjoyed with Gladiator.
