This film is excellent, i loved it. The main character is Jimmy, played by Heath Ledger. Whom i am now a great fan off, after seeing this. Jimmy has to do a simple 'job' for a local gang, but it all turns pair shaped when he loses the cash, and the gang come after him. The film is based around Jimmy trying his best to avoid them, whilst still trying to date his love interest Alex(Rose Byrne). Theres a few twists and turns along the way, and a good ending. This film shows that the Aussies are getting the act together making movies, See it.

Wow, who would have guessed that Heath Ledger could act as well as this? This is a great crime caper film, much in the vein of Lock Stock or Resevoir Dogs, but with all the quirkiness of a typical Aussie flick. The story centres around Ledger, a 19-year-old who gets tangled up in a whole heap of trouble after a fairly basic job goes horribly wrong.
An on the run Ledger is brilliant as a hapless crook and the bank scene has to be seen to be believed. What's more the rest of the cast support brilliantly as your slightly more chummy Aussie gangsters, with a bit more cheerfulness and fun than in most gangster flicks. There are other brilliant moments and the whole film wreaks of being an understudy to the Tarantino classics Resevoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, as the dark criminal issues are dealt with in a cruelly humorous way.
Overall, this is a great film to watch with friends. It's easy going and generally highly entertaining. Occasionally the film is marred by somewhat amateurish cinematics and the odd script problem. Still, a great film, highly recommended.

For anyone who is a fan of Australian film, this is a great view and crowd pleaser. Typically weird in places, with some good twists and a great performance from Bryan Brown. This movie is enchanting and severe. Realistic portrayal of Sydney's seedier side with much of the action taking place in Kings Cross.

Together with a fantastic soundtrack, and all you Powderfinger fans out there will be happy, a definate must have for the cult movie shelf.

Format: DVD
Two Hands (1999) is an "Australian gangster comedy" (as Heath describes it [1]). Heath plays Jimmy, a hot, tender and simple guy mixed up with the Sydney mafia. Heath describes Jimmy as "a young guy that ... is growing up all his life in The Cross. His mum maybe was a prostitute ... his father is dead maybe ... basically he is in a world where he believes that this is his only path in life ... he meets a lovely young lady, Alex, and she opens his eyes and let's him see that there's another light at the end of the tunnel" [2]. Two Hands, a film alla Tarantino and, for some moments, alla Jim Jarmusch, was the first movie filmed and based on Kings Cross (Sydney's red-light district): "It's something that we haven't really seen in Australia ... the gangster side of Sydney ... we see it on the Godfather, we see them driving around in their Rolls-Royces, but we don't see the Australian godfathers in their stubby shorts and singlets [3], drinking VBs [4] ..."[5]. The film is funny, strong and cool (without counting the "zombie scenes", which I didn't like at all), and the director (Gregor Jordan) and cast surrounding the amazing, wonderful and talented Heath (Bryan Brown, David Field and Rose Byrne) are amazing / Antonia Tejeda Barros

Unfortunately, the DVD does not have ENGLISH subtitles for the hearing impaired, and, if English is not your native language (like it happens to be in my case), sometimes there are words that are difficult to understand, due to the Aussie accent and slang.

'Two Hands' is a bold drama wrapped around a comedic lesson of morals, wrapped around a simple, even slightly messy thriller. Gregor Jordan captivates his audience time and time again, reaching a good mixture of amusing gags and fast action. What he doesn't create is a film that is engaging as a whole, but rather one that has plenty of memorable and amusing scenes and subplots. It's bound to be a crowd pleasing movie, and contains enough jags and recurring plot elements to keep the viewers who don't find the central plot interesting still amused.

A quality Aussie movie set in the seedy gang and drug suburbs of Kings Cross, Sydney. If you like "Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" this a definate must combining action and revenge with great Aussie humour.
