Never let the truth get in the way of a good yarn!,
This review is from: Chopper  [DVD] (DVD)
Australian comic Eric Banna embodies the role of Mark "chopper" Reed and really brings him to life, without him in the title role this movie would be no where near the quality it is with him. This movie is violent yet funny, and the main character is cruel and sadistic yet likeable. There is something about Chopper which makes you like him, like the way he apologises after he has just shot a man; "bloody hell mate, sorry." He knows what he's done is wrong but only realises after hes comitted the crime. He is almost child like in his naiveity (uh is that a real word). Banna has been in some great films but this is easily his best. You want violence? Choppers got it. You want Humour? Choppers got it. You want Interesting characters. Choppes got it. You want footage of a man satisfying a goat... look else where.
