When Australia came out in 2008 I thought it was a movie about koalas and kangaroos. But I was wrong. Actually there was a scene with a mob kangaroos but...one got shot. So yeah, no kangaroos although there was a lot of cows. Cattles actually and Hugh Jackman *drools*.
I mean who doesn't love Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman. :D Honestly I did not think I would like this movie, nor even want to see it. But after the little fight in the beginning and how Hugh and Nicole character met (it is pretty funny) I knew it was gonna be one of those movies. What makes it more interesting to me was the movie was set before WWII. It involves driving 2000 cattle over the crazy dry land and the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese.
Honestly I like this movie. I would watch it again just because I fell asleep in the middle of the movie but you know me. XD My sister liked it and she is pretty hard to impress. It has suspense, crazy sexy moments and some sad moments too, awesome in my book. So if you come across this movie don't change the channel (like CLK said).
Beside I think Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman's performance is awesome.
Have you seen Australia?
