Fails on many levels
30 December 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Set during the aftermath of the Cronulla riots in Australia, it is the story of how two carloads of adversaries seeking revenge accidentally meet. It is described as black comedy but technically that is incorrect because, by definition, a comedy has to be funny and the laughs in the movie are not only sparse but not very funny. The fact that the story is slow and quite boring doesn't help. The film has received some critical praise in Australia, but I'm of the opinion that it's only because Australian cinema is currently in a severe lull.

Perhaps it's aimed at a young audience, who may even enjoy it. I'm in my fifties and found it dull. Seriously consider waiting until a TV release and be disappointed then. At least you can change channels.
