You can kill a man. But not a legend.
From the producers of Elizabeth and About A Boy comes the true story of one of the most notorious outlaws of all time … Ned Kelly. Persecuted by the police and hunted by an empire, Ned Kelly had the largest reward in the world on his head. Forced into hiding whilst his friends and family were unlawfully imprisoned, Ned and his gang soon became folklore. Featuring Heath Ledger (A Knight’s Tale, Monsters’ Ball), Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings) and Academy Award-winning Geoffrey Rush (Pirates of the Caribbean, Shine, Elizabeth) in a dramatic and exciting story of one of Australia’s most famous legends.
Making no pretence to be factually accurate, Ned Kelly is at least an engaging action film with its heart in the right place. You don't need to be a student of Australian history to know that a picture detailing the life of the notorious folk hero and outlaw is not going to be a light-hearted romp through the outback. Injustice, persecution and unlawful imprisonment are the meat of his story, all presented here with not too much of a rose-tinted perspective amid generous doses of obligatory action.
Rebellious teenager Ned Kelly (Heath Ledger) is wrongfully imprisoned for stealing a horse and, when he returns to the bosom of his large Irish family, finds that the police won't let him go straight. After being accused of a crime he didn't commit, Kelly is left with no option but to go on the run. Accompanied by his gang (among them Orlando Bloom) he robs banks to survive and also to try and get the money together to free his family from prison. There is some considerable romanticising of the story and the man himself, due in part to Ledger's affable Robin Hood-esque working-class hero portrayal. Bloom is wide-eyed and daring as Kelly's main man, and Naomi Watts as his married mistress has the thankless task of breaking up some great action sequences to play the unnecessary love interest. --Kristen Bowditch

Ignore some of these reviews-the eye candy isnt the only thing going for this movie-it merely draws you in!
Although at times the film strays from historical fact, most notably with Ned Kelly's love interest (played by Naomi Watts), the changes - even if not entirely necessary - do work, and the film has much to offer with its stunning cinematography and cast performances.
Heath Ledger's performance as Ned Kelly is to his credit, Orlando Bloom shines as Joe Byrne, and actors Laurence Kinlan and Phil Barantini both deliver extremely promising performances as Dan Kelly and Steve Hart respectively.
Combined, the acting and cinematography contribute to make this an extremely moving and beautifully done film, and it therefore comes highly recommended.
The DVD extras consist of a short documentary on Ned Kelly, with particular focus on the various cinematic portrayals of the Kelly Gang, along with some photos which include artist conceptions, theatrical posters and a Kelly Gang gallery. There's no doubt that more extras - such as cast interviews, audio commentaries and/or a 'making of' featurette - would have been a worthy addition, but what has been included, although limited, is still of great interest.
It's definitely worth paying the extra for the blu-ray version, the quality is superb and enhances the experience of the landscapes. The excellent documentary special feature on Ned Kelly is worth the price of the disc on its own, although it would have been nice to have a "making of" with interviews with the cast - sadly no longer possible.
One to keep, and see again.
