Constable Shane Cooper (Ryan Kwanten, TV's True Blood) arrives in the small town of Red Hill in search of a quieter life. But, on Cooper's first day with the Red Hill Police Department, a convicted murderer escapes from prison and heads straight for Red Hill to kill the men who put him there. One by one, the townsmen fall until Cooper discovers the shocking truth about the convict, and must challenge everything he believes in order to stop the massacre and bring justice to Red Hill.

Not "The Outback" but actually set and filmed in the seldom-seen Southern Alpine region of South-East Australia. This film is well worth watching and more plausible than some think (see my "Comment" no. 3 under Steve Kuehl's critique on this page). Real political issues are woven into the film, such as the proposed high-speed rail line and restrictive highland access for cattle grazing. This gives more "local" edge to a tense, well-paced film. The only real inconsistency (to Australians) would be a "shortage" of Police vehicles requiring the main character having to go horseback to check-out a report on his first day.
Anyone who enjoys this film should also consider "The Proposition", "Dead Heart" and "Two Hands".

Format: Blu-ray
True Blood star Ryan Kwanten plays a young Shane Cooper, a constable on his first day on the job in a small town in Australia. When an escaped convict (Tom E. Lewis) returns to the town to wreck vengeance, Shane has to keep his wits about as he comes to learn that things truly aren't what they seem. What makes Red Hill so surprisingly enjoyable is that it is for all rights and purposes a modern-day western with an Aussie backdrop. The stand-offs, the final showdown, the dusty environment, and the gorgeous Australian outback; all of which combines to make for a surprisingly memorable thriller. Even more surprising is Kwanten, who after seeing him play an idiot for the past few years on Trube Blood, is a welcome change of pace to see playing an intelligent and heroic character. All in all, Red Hill is wholeheartedly worth your time if you're looking for an intelligent thriller.

Format: DVD
"Red Hill" is a modern-day take on the Western genre. There is also an allegorical element to the familiar revenge story and cardboard characters (including a mysterious panther). And perhaps a political angle, too. I think I know these things, but to me "Red Hill" is just another so-so action movie with lots of clichés.

The film starts slowly with a young police officer Shane Cooper (Ryan Kwanten), who has just relocated to a quiet town of Red Hill with his loving wife Alice (Claire van der Boom) - quiet until Jimmy Conway (Tom E. Lewis), a prisoner serving a life term for murder breaks out of a maximum security prison. Apparently Jimmy Conway is heading for Red Hill, where police officers and townspeople are ready to gun down the escaped convict.

Acting is good and Ryan Kwanten is effective as a likable hero, but it is Steve Bisley as Old Bill, head of the police force, who steals the show. To his credit, writer/director Patrick Hughes (his feature debut) managed to create some tension in action scenes.

But the storyline is predicable, borrowing every narrative device you can think of from other Western movies or crime thrillers. You can see the underwhelming climax from miles away. This might not have been a big problem if the film had been directed with more confidence. Sometimes "Red Hill" does not know what it want to do - embrace the conventions or reinvent them. Also, I frankly don't know what the film's weird subplot about a panther is all about.

This is not to say "Red Hill" is a bad film. It is just disappointingly weak.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Tommy Dooley TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 7, 2011
Format: DVD
This sets itself up as a `Western' and does not fail to deliver. This is a modern day take on such greats as `High Noon'. It tells the story of a young cop Shane Cooper (Ryan Kwanten), who moves to the back of nowhere to not jeopardise the pregnancy of his wife, as city life can be so stressful.

On his first day his new boss ridicules him for being late, not having a gum and a past indiscretion when he failed to shoot a kid. That incident ended up with him being shot instead. This is the town time forgot, but Jimmy Conway (Tom E. Lewis) most certainly hasn't. He is an Aborigine, who has been jailed for murdering his own wife. He has just escaped from a high security prison, and the townsfolk are adamant he is heading their way, and they get tooled up. They are ordered to shoot on sight.

Shane is told he has to go to some outback farm and the only source of transportation available is a horse. He does not sit too well in the saddle and is given the advice `just look where you want to go, and the horse will follow.

There is also a sub plot about a roaming panther and the aboriginal, sacred ground atop the nearby mountain. The rest is pure western with Jimmy turning up and the shooting begins.

I really enjoyed this from start to finish, there are some minor plot holes, but not so bad as to ruin my enjoyment. It is well paced, some may find it slow, but I like the fact that time had been taken over the cinematography and the direction helps to build up tension. Patrick Hughes has done a great job, and as he wrote it too, this has obviously been a labour of love. This is not an all action shoot em up, but is a very watchable, well made film and praise should go to Screen Australia too for co funding, I hope Mr Hughes does not take too long for his next one.

It's Shane Cooper's first day on the job as a deputy in a quiet Australian town. He came from a larger municipality where he'd been shot because he couldn't bring himself to draw down on the shooter who was just a young kid. Now things will be nicer for him and his wife who is pregnant a second time after miscarrying the first time. Problem is, a psycho killer has broken out of prison and his heading straight for this quite little hamlet to wipe out the entire police force.

This is a nifty flick. It has a way over-the-top setup established early on, so it's merely a question on how this will all play out. And therein lies the niftiness of it all. It makes a turn in the third act that takes it from being a psycho killer, slasher type flick to a more socially conscious, revenge type flick. I won't spoil things but let me say I liked this route much better than the one I expected to play out from the setup.

Some of the script is fairly clever. Some is a bit too supernatural killer-ish. That a big storm is brewing that never hits is a nice metaphor/backdrop to the story. I also liked that I was given some clues early on as to the switchback in the storyline that I didn't pick up on. It gave me a nice "ah hah" moment later on.

The acting and production values are all as good as they have to be to pull this off. It was very smooth and professional with a really good musical score. I liked the ending quite a bit. Too often these kinds of movies can drop the ball on the five yard line but I'm not sure this could have ended any other way.

This is a good, unexpected turn in what could have been a simple minded violent thriller. It's more a three and a half star entry than the three I gave it. So, if you like a new trick on an old dog, give this a shot. It's well worth your time.
