About the Movie
Gripping action and powerful performances by some of today's hottest stars come together in this epic story of a real-life outlaw who defied the law and inspired his people. Actor Heath Ledger (The Four Feathers, A Knight's Tale) brings a raw intensity to the role of Ned Kelly, an innocent man driven to fight the corrupt authorities oppressing his people. Joining Ned's legendary gang is his best friend, Joe, played with devilish charm by Orlando Bloom (Troy, Pirates of the Caribbean) and sexy Academy Award® nominee Naomi Watts (21 Grams, The Ring) as Ned's lover, Julia. Overnight, the Kelly Gang become heroes to their people. But as their popularity grows, they quickly find themselves the target of a ruthless lawman, (Geoffrey Rush) who soon makes them the most wanted men the world has ever known.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There is a potent national epic struggling to find expression here, but this movie is too rushed and fragmented to do it justice.
Rotten: Manages to shrink the grandness of the myth without clarifying our understanding of the man.
Fresh: The handsome, meticulously produced picture ... impresses for its rigorous recreation of the period and its refusal to turn the Kelly legend into horse opera.
Fresh: Marks a welcome departure from the usual rah-rah machismo of the semi-nationalist action adventure, but Jordan never escapes the mighty shadow of The Thin Red Line.
I thought it was a good movie. I think it should be rated alittle higher than it is. Over all it's a good movie
My mother once told me...
... that God is always smiling on you when you have a Guinness in your hand and the sun shining on yer back.
