Top Customer Reviews
An Australian legend, similar to Brittain's Robin Hood, or America's Jessie James, "Ned Kelly" is a shockingly graphic depiction of freedom and justice.
Waylon Jennings and the soundtrack music is unforgettable. While having an aversion to mick jagger, I believe he contributed much to the feel of this film, and this may be his finest performance.
Very folky stuff. If you like old Bob Dylan, you'll love this.
While mentioned in the movie ,the full letter Ned Kelly wrote,which to a large degree forms much of the basis for this story,should be read.It can be found in "The Jerilderie Letter",edited by Alex Mc Dermott,which I reviewed on June 6,2009. Also appropriate,would be to read "True History of the Kelly Gabg" by Peter Carey,which I reviewed on June 24,2009.
There is so much to cover in this piece of history,that the movie has to move quickly to cover the story.Some have criticized the choice of Jagger for the main role;but I think he did an excellent job.He did not appear for only short periods,but was in virtually every scene.I was also impressed with the photography and felt that it, along with the music,was outstanding.
Of course,as with any piece of history,there can be endless arguments about how factually accurate every last detail is;but if one can get past nitpicking;this movie is excellent.
