The R2 PAL DVD includes the original trailer but not the negligible 2 TV spots and brief featurette from the R1 NTSC release, but it's worth picking up just for the film. MGM/UA's US region-free Blu-ray also offers the extras from the US DVd and a superior widescreen transfer.
In the film Quigley travels to the Western Australian outback in response to an advertisement by wealthy rancher Alan Rickman, who wants a marksman who can shoot accurately over long distances. Soon after arriving Quigley learns that he will be employed to shoot local aborigines as part of an ethnic cleansing campaign headed by the rancher. The two have an explosive confrontation which ends with Quigley being badly beaten and dumped in the desert with a young woman who has befriended him. But Quigley is not finished yet. They really should have finished him off when they had the chance! Big mistake! We head to an old fashioned showdown, where Quigley does not believe that Rickman measures up to the likes of Wild Bill Hickock.
Tom Selleck does an excellent job in the lead role. He is a natural born westerner who could sleepwalk through the part. He looks and acts the real deal. The diminutive Laura San Giacamo provides attractive and feisty support. Alan Rickman is excellent in another of his cadaverous panto villain roles. He does not ham it up to the same extent as his overblown performance that same year as the Sheriff of Nottingham in "Robin Hood Prince of Thieves".Read more ›
What we have is an Australian western, complete with fist fights, shootouts, galloping horses, buckboards, draggings and, of course, a dramatic shootout which the beaten-up hero doesn't lose. Quigley Down Under, however, began to annoy me when I realized that all of this in the two hour movie would have benefited greatly through editing out at least 20 minutes. Scenes go on too long. Characters say too much. Much time is spent seeing how innocent and true to nature the Aborigines are. Hours seem to be spent watching Quigley and Cora slog through one desert sequence after another.
And yet...I enjoyed the movie.Read more ›
