Here's a comical Australian action story for a change, featuring such greatness as Simon Pegg, Steve Le Marquand, Alice Braga, Teresa Palmer, Callan Mulvey and Sullivan Stapleton. The first and foremost was the only one I knew of, but the others may have been even better actors here; they all put on a great show - a spectacularly twisted, violent and satirically chuckalable tale of a hit man who stumbles into a real rage of relations. And even though it's a comedy, there's a lot of blood.
The story's as fun as it is brutal, and the sceneries are colorful and clear, beautiful, beachy, always a feast for the eyes. Only a set few people make up the cast of the film, but it never grows dull. The filming feels slick and creative, motions fluent and varied, and never too fast, it has an air of peace about it despite the pace at which it moves. I suppose that's what you call good directing. Clever, colorful, crazy, traumatic, tragic, stylistic (both the sceneries and the savagery) short from that one island idyll. Refreshingly different and entertaining.
