In these volatile times, with racism on the march again all over the world, this is a dangerous film.
June 9, 2008
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.

This is in no way a pleasant film experience. It is relentlessly psychologically violent, almost nauseatingly so on occasion. However it is one of the finest films to be made in this country in recent years.

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.
