Critic Reviews for True History of the Kelly Gang
Those who enjoy gritty, angry Westerns (especially those set in the Australian bush rather than along the American frontier) will find much here to their taste, none of which is in need of additional seasoning.
There's a texture and a muck that are so tangible that they really put you in the middle of this film. You can taste it and you can smell it.
This is myth-making, splattered in blood, scored with an electric guitar, and enacted with such brazen bigness that you wouldn't be surprised if the cast assembled for a curtain call at the end.
But for all its real visual flair, it's hard not to feel that the film misses something crucial about Kelly in the end - trading machismo for manhood, and sensation for true history.
Kurzel's film doesn't simply show us the shattered masculinity and class rage that fueled Kelly's infamous late 19th-century crime spree, it shoots that energy outward like sparks from a forge.
