Product Description

Product Description

"To put the ‘hard word’ on:" to apply pressure, sometimes involving threat or menace …

Meet the Twentyman brothers – three wayward stick-up men who live by the credo "nobody gets hurt". The eldest and brightest, Dale (Guy Pearce) is the undisputed leader, whilst middle sibling Mal (Damien Richardson) is enthusiastic and dependable. And the youngest, Shane (Joel Edgerton) provides plenty of muscle, but with a side order of destructive tendencies. Released from prison for the umpteenth time thanks to their crooked lawyer, Frank (Robert Taylor), who’s knee-deep in both the brothers’ affairs and Dale’s wife, Carol (Rachel Griffiths) – the brothers are landed with one final one for Frank. The plan? To rip off the bookies at the Melbourne Cup.

Format: DVD
Guy Pearce is always watchable and the rest of the cast put in sterling performances in this solid crime caper from down under. This is definitely more grit than gloss mind you. The plot culminates in a heist and their is a twist or two in the tale. I particularly like the use of "butcher talk" or backslang...the writer seems to have spent time with criminal gangs!

I watched this Australian heist movie last night and was thoroughly entertained. Guy Pearce is as good as you can expect as Dale, the leader of a trio of bank robbers called the 'Twentymen'.

His partners are Mal, the prison butcher and Shane, who suffers from fits of rage. Rachel Griffiths plays Dale's wife Carol, who has been unfaithful to him whilst he's been imprisoned.

What makes this film enjoyable are good characters and performances, great photography, a script that doesn't suffer from overbearing seriousness and a pace that moves. It's not really 'Reservoir Dogs Down Under' as the blurb on the sleeve says, but I do think this film deserves a bit more of an audience.

For the pittance of £2!! (current Amazon price), do yourself a favour and give this film a go. It's got more going for it than a lot of Hollywood shlock.

Have watched this several times with my brother, I think it's def one for the Aussies - all the Europeans and Americans that have tried to watch it with me don't get it.... but love the storyline and all the twists...
