Chaos at Wolf Creek, eh Mate?

This weekend, I watched two movies and you lucky readers will get the pleasure of reading my reviews for both!

Wolf Creek Poster Wolf Creek – 2.5 of 5 stars

“30,000 people are reported missing in Australia each year. 90% are found within a month. Some are never seen again.”

That’s the first thing that you see on the pitch black screen after the studio logos fade away. That was very thought provoking and the first thing I thought of was it reminded me of the movies Proof of Life and Man on Fire which talk about South American kidnappings for ransom. The movie is about a trio of young hip twenty something’s that are driving across the country, partying at various stops. They make a stop at the infamous Wolfe Creek which is a large crater left by an asteroid a long time ago. It’s very much like Diamond Head in Hawaii. A big tourist attraction you can do a day hike up.

Ok, the movie sucked. It’s 1:40 long and the first full hour is totally boring. It’s just them drinking and swimming and smoking. There is no sex, no nudity, no girl on girl kissing, nothing. There is, I guess, some character development but it certainly did not take an hour. When the action finally starts, it’s sort of fun. The villain is typical “country”. Think Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Wrong Turn villains. Much like the former, the story is based on a mish-mash of actual events and actually combines the profiles of two real-life convincted killers and various serial killing incidents to make the story of the movie.

As the end credits rolled, I thought about the statistic at the beginning. If I was an Aussie responsible for this movie and I was lost, I wouldn’t want to be found. Next!

Chaos – 4 of 5 stars

When I saw the cast of this movie, I knew I had to watch it. Jason Stratham plays a disgruntled suspended cop after a nasty incident involving the accidental shooting of a the daughter of a prominent politician. Wesley Snipes plays a dirty dirty criminal mastermind. Finally, Ryan Philllipe once again dons his Crash cop uniform, this time at the detective paygrade.

At first, I thought the movie would be another lame action movie. I was mostly wrong. The story begins immediately with a very high-profile bank robbery by Snipes and his crew. He tells the negotiator that he will only speak to Stratham so he is immediately reinstated since there are 40 hostage lives at stake. Phillippe is the son of a famous cop and is a new detective assigned to Stratham in both a partner as well as “keep-an-eye-on” role.

Soon there is intrigue, murder, double-crosses, one kiss, high-speed chases, and some very interesting twists. The twists are so interesting in fact, that I had to rewind and watch many scenes three or four times to make sure I caught a critical word or line. Even then, I am confused what happened the last 10 minutes of the film.

Now that’s a movie!

  • They do but you put enough links in and Spam Karma 2 will classify your post as being suspicious or right-out spam.

  • Yeah, but did Chaos have hoo hoos? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Oh, Australians can’t make movies. They should stick to tv shows about crazy guys jumping in front of crocodiles. That’s what Australians are good at.

    One thing I want to know though – how come Australian women are hot? They’re from the same genetic stock at English women, yet English women are about as attractive as tweeker chicks. It’s a strange world we live in.

  • There were no hoo hoos at all in Chaos.

    Australian women are hot because they have a touch of criminal in them.
