  "..COOL MODERN WESTERN.."

| | See all sdx800's reviews (1725)

Red hill is a classic revenge theme movie in the form of a modern style western, with police on horses and shootouts and plenty of violence in a small Australian town, basically the story is about a new deputy who gets involved in a local cover up when an escaped criminal comes into town for revenge, a very small film done a low budget but used very well with a fantastic style and direction, the movie is paced out really well and keeps you interested in the characters and the story as it unfolds, there's plenty of cool shootouts and bloody violence, the cast is great too, very entertaining and well worth a watch, gem of a movie!!

  'HELL IS COMING TO TOWN'

| | See all rbmusicman's reviews (896)

'shane cooper' moves to 'red hill' with his heavily pregnant wife, they have been told that moving to a less stressful enviroment could help them avoid losing another pregnancy.
his job is with the 'sheriff's department.
a prisoner 'jimmy conway' has escaped from jail, 'red hill's' sheriff knows that the now heavily armed escapee is heading back to the town in which he'd been arrested years before.
hell is about to break loose, the body count is rising, however despite two opertunities to do so, 'jimmy' doesn't kill 'shane'
'shane' smells a rat, something is not right.
this is a far better film than i was lead to believe...........worth a spin.

  TV style Australian movie lacking action for a great modern

True Blood's Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) stars in this low budget, privately funded, Australian modern western. The fact he's in it is the cause it was released in Europe. He plays a young rookie cop, part of a local police team out to stop a returning legend felon Jimmy Conway. The film heats up after 40 minutes of dullness when the scarred faced, shot gun wielding Conway turns up for revenge.

A directorial debut film, it is TV movie-esque but has an enjoyable shoot-out sequence on the hour mark. The film is quite basic, set in the Australian red hills of Victoria. There is a good ending, revealing a twist in the story between Old Bill and his police squad, and convict on the run Conway.

If you like the sound of the cast, plot, location, modern westerns or police cowboys in rural Australia then this will just about scrape through for your entertainment, most people will give this a miss and not miss much in my opinion.

Jimmy Conway will be riding into town, bringing hell with him. Shoot to kill!
