If you like anything out of the norm.I think you will appreciate this movie.
The film is about five best mates from Sydney who love AC/DC and are in their own hard rock garage band. They go to a concert of theirs in 1991 and have a great time. While admiring a poster of Bon Scott, the late AC/DC member, the young guys avoid a run in with a car. They take it as a sign, take down the poster of Bon, and make a promise that if any of them does die, then the others would bury them next to Bon Scott in Fremantle, Western Australia. Twelve years later, their band and their friendship is all but broken up. One's now a drug dealer, one works in a supermarket, one still lives with his parents recording demos, one used to be a bouncer, and one's dead, hit by lighting. Yes, you could almost say he was "Thunderstruck"! The guys see this as a sign and remember their promise, reuniting, nabbing the ashes of their mate from his vain ex-wife and head across thousands of kilometres of outback towards Fremantle, to unite their dead friend with his hero. But will they make it?
As in many other Australian films, there are many cameo appearances from Australian celebrities. There's rock group Killing Heidi (playing themselves), there's Quentin Kenihan the wheelchair bound Australian director (who plays a paralympian with road rage), and there's late night host Roy Slaven (who plays a petrol station owner). There may have been some others I didn't recognize in there too.
One of the reasons I don't like Australian film that much is the way everything looks like it was recorded ten years before it actually was.Read more ›
