There is a part of me that hopes this film is going to be as good as the hype has made it out to be.

There is also a part of me that thinks it might be a train wreck.

I am going to go into this with an open mind, but low expectations. I do hope this doesn't suck.

Mmm, I am going to see it as well. Mainly so I can say I have seen it, and secondly I am actually intrigued to see if it will be as good as it's meant to be.

Well it's a Baz film so at the very least it'll be interesting and far from boring, even if it's not award-winning cinema.

It's a Baz film?? I'm so going to go see it then.

My work (qantas) gave me two free tickets to see this film

I used them to see High School Musical 3 and James Bond

I took my mother to see it last week. It's typically Baz, it's long, but it's alright. It's not the world's greatest film, but it's entertaining, quite funny in parts and terribly sad in others.

As for my mother. She LOVED it. It's set in the time of her youth. She remembers the Stolen Generation being taken from their families and she remembers the bombing of Darwin. What she liked most was that the Australian accent and jargon was not 'dumbed down' for the rest of the world. It was true to it's home land.

This looks so good from the previews on TV. But those can't always be trusted since they always show good parts.

But I do generally like action flicks, so I bet this one'll turn out good.

I think I would rather stick hot needles in my eyes.
Hugh Jackman's ridiculously exaggerrated Aussie accent is unbearable and Nicole Kidman wouldn't know what acting was if it danced naked in front of her.

how does a guy from Australia exaggerate his own accent?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 12/3/08 - 11:12:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah Holly, that's what I want to know. Hugh is speaking in his normal voice throughout the movie. This IS what he sounds like when he's at home with the wife and kids.

Nicole, on the other hand, is walking around the desert like a porcelain doll. Not sure if this is part of the character (could be). But she's never been as good as the likes of Cate Blanchett or Naomi Watts. Still, the others around her in this film make up for what she lacks and this isn't the first film to do this. All of Keanu Reeves films can claim the same.

To me it sounds fake and exaggerated. I know he originally has an Aussie accent, but he seems to be trying too hard.

Just my personal opinion.

Full of cliches, but still entertaining.

It is beautiful though - the cinematography is amazing. There are fantastic shots of the landscape, a big rush of horses and cattle (I don't know how they did that - it looked incredible)

Brandon Walters is wonderful as Nullah. He really has charisma, and was utterly convincing.

I enjoyed it. It's entertaining and dramatic; over the top in places.The first half had it's funny moments as well. Agreed that shots are amazingly beautiful.

Brandon Walters was fantastic in every single part.... he stole the show. And Hugh Jackman... yum.
