The Tumbler will divert genre fans who don't mind the absence of gloss.
Promising as it sounds, in practice The Tumbler is a mess. The characters are strictly stock types -- none of them especially sympathetic -- and the story soon becomes so convoluted that it's easy to get lost in the swirl of explanations and flashbacks.
There's a lot of invention here that doesn't get a chance to come alive. Fast moving, short and full of ideas, The Tumbler has the kind of nervy, larger than life quality of the best of '50s B cinema.
A twisting thriller with a message to boot.
This ultra low-budget Australian film, made by Marc Gracie (director of You and Your Stupid Mate), is saddled with quite a number of major credibility problems, both in terms of plot and character.
There are so many scores being settled here, by the filmmakers as well as their characters, that tension takes a holiday, along with credibility and fun.
The Tumbler -- which follows the current local trend of being attractively shot and framed -- is one for those who enjoy their food for thought wrapped up in a damn fine yarn.
The plot revolves around post war nuclear tests and how the two unlikely fellow travellers, motivated by their hidden agenda, arrive at an intersection of these agendas. Digging up the past is the theme, in which the past requires retribution
