This film is a refreshing approach to film in Australia.
Going into the film I did not know what I was expecting, one thing thatI was certain of, was that if it was anything to do with Luke sparkethen I was very interested, as he is such a great talent
Having Dan in the film along with a great ensemble cast makes this amust- see Australian film, I was lucky enough to see it on the GoldCoast at a special Gold Coast Premier and it's certainly didn'tdisappoint.
Big congratulations to both Luke and the DOP Andrew Condor for such anincredible job, the beautiful sweeping vistas in this capture Australiaat it's best, the direction from Luke is amazing - the tension betweenthe characters is what drives this film and which makes you anticipatewhat is going to happen in the end.
The surprise Twist at the end was certainly something that I did notsee coming and it made a refreshing change from the usual films thatrely on old and tired
I wholeheartedly congratulate Luke, Andrew and the entire Team for suchan incredible job, all the cast was superbly cast in their individualroles and the crew did such an amazing job but then again you come toexpect that from Australian Crews.
Do you see this in a cinema as you will get the full scope of what Lukewas doing when he was directing the actors in the action, this is upthere as one of Australia's top ten , really enjoyed it and I can'twait to see what the next installment from Luke will be

This film is a refreshing approach to film in Australia.
Red Billabong is something completely unique and refreshing. We havenever seen an Aussie film like this before, and i think that's whatmakes it a winner. Beautiful Australian scenery, mixed with a hot cast,with a few familiar faces along with lots of new ones too, are theperfect receipe. The cinematography is amazing, as is Luke Sparke'sdirection and writing. You can tell he was influenced by films such asJurassic Park. I don't mind at all, because that is one of my favouritefilms ever! The characters are the kind that keep you invested. I lovethe chemistry and the bromance between Dan Ewing and Tim Pocock'scharacters, brothers Tristan and Nick. There's no secret this is amonster flick, but what exactly is the Red Billabong monster? That, youwill have to find out for yourself.
This film is such a shame. It had everything going for it, decentproduction values, visually interesting and a unique idea. All of thisgets turned into a missed opportunity by a poorly executed script fullof cliques, casual misogyny and lazy dialogue.
The main problem is that main characters (the brother) are just boring.The film doesn't give you a single reason to like or care for them.They're not unlikable people but they're far from being interesting oremotionally engaging enough for you go on this journey with them. Norare they cool or charismatic enough for you to live a power fantasythrough them. On top of this, all the minor characters are totallyinterchangeable and forgettable (which the expectation of the goofygirl).
The main plot (until the monster plot takes over) is about the leadsworking out whether or not to sell their family farm. Something youdon't really want for a film that's touting it self as as 'the biggestAustralian action film of 2016'. I'm guessing they didn't catch theabsurdly silly 'Gods of Egypt'.
You would think that this plot would just be a mcguffin so a familydrama can unfold between the brothers but nope. And this's theproblem. Internally, you have no idea who the two leads or what theyreally want. Don't get me wrong, characters in these type of filmsneeds to be too deep but they do need some dept. Even Max is the 'lighton plot' 'Fury Road' had internal desires and motivations. I.e. testingif he could trust and connect with humans again. These characters arejust uninspiring cliques who spurt plot points until the monster turnsup.
The first two acts just have too many 'talking head' scenes that couldhave been edited right down. But in its defense, the third act ispretty good. It's where all the action, CG and set pieces are but bythe time it came around, I'd I'd stopped caring.
To be honest, the film really didn't bother me too much. We've all seenbad films. What inspired the review was the Q&A after the film in whichthe director spend the entire time attempting to humble brag about howgreat he and his film is. He used every opportunity to mention that itwas a "Good, fun action film" It's really not. It's a technicallysound, bloated film with a bad script.
It also made it perfectly clear he's an 'independent filmmaker and notHollywood". I think that was clear to everyone from all the actors from'Home and Away'.
And he really going to leave his mark on the Australian film industry;not with scripts like this he isn't.
The film fails at it's aspirations of being a light and fun popcornfilm. Everyone clearly has talent and were trying there best. It's notthe worst thing I've ever seen, but there are so many other greatAustralian genre film you really should be watching before this.
