Rated 1 out of 5 by BabyGeniuses A rare experience
Baz Lurhman has proven that he is undoubtedly incapable of competently creating a watchable epic film.
What's wrong with it:
Pacing, writing, acting, directing, and the strange use of homeless people as comedy relief.
If you want to waste your time, or test your patience, or learn what movies should not be - watch this movie. Otherwise, avoid it.
Rated 3 out of 5 not what it could have been
Could have been an epic movie but the story line didn't make you like the stars
Rated 4 out of 5 by Vertice Great movie , especially for the price
This movie is so goodI am surprised that was never popular.
Rated 5 out of 5 great movie
This movie was so good I watched it 3 times in a row, then purchased 2 as gifts for Christmas. It is a must see movie.
Rated 5 out of 5 by diamondp843 didnt really want to see it but got talked into it. i fell in love. the movie was great!
Rated 4 out of 5 Good Movie
This movie is a good movie, not a great movie. It is very tongue in cheek to begin and then gets more and more serious as the story goes on. It is a good story, but I would not call it an epic, even though it is filmed like one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MRMRSSNOW Better Than Expected
I've learned not to always pay attention to so called expert reviews when it comes to movies. I tend more to rely on my own instinct from previews seen and listening instead to others opinions that I respect. This movie proved to be better than I expected. I bought it because of the low price. There was sufficient action, the story line was very good and the scenery in many cases was outstanding. I would recommend this movie to anyone.
Rated 5 out of 5 by malalola27 Australia
I loved this movie. I enjoyed it so much..I bought it! It had everything. Romance, drama, comedy, scenery, and a bad guy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by java5656 Fantastic Movie
This is a GREAT Movie!!!. The story line and acting was excellent. Not to mention the occasonal Beautiful landscape shots. When I saw how long the movie was I was a bit inclined to put it aside for a while. Well, once I started watching it, I could not imagine where the time went. This movie grabs you from the beginning right to the end... I would highly recommend this movie... Java....
Rated 5 out of 5 Great Movie

My husband and I loved the movie "Australia". It started out a little bit confusing but it ended up being a great movie. The scenery was excellent and the computer graphics were terrific! I have recommended this movie to all our friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by N8tron Overcoming odds
A decent movie about overcoming odds to pull through tough situations. Strong family theme. A little something for everyone. It incorporates the Pearl Harbor bombing and war conflict into the historical design.
The only problem I had is that the movie seemed to dwell a little too much on the child, "Nullah". Yes, he was pretty much the main character that "drove" the plot, so I guess the focus on him was needed.
Well worth the price of admission.
Rated 4 out of 5 This is a beautiful film with striking scenes of Austrlia. Loved it. The perfect pacing added to the overall effect. Must see...time went quickly.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grinder77 Amazing!
You need to see this movie! Not a western but if you love westerns, you'll love this movie. If you love romance movies, you'll love this movie. If you're human and you have a pulse, you'll love this movie. Wow.
Rated 4 out of 5 by stewart australia
Good story line and acting. Good action with limited gore. Family friendly for teenagers. I would not suggest seeing Australia at a movie theater because of the lenght. Wait for dvd release to watch at home to be able to pause.
Rated 5 out of 5 by acch Outstanding
This movie did not seem like it was almost 3 hours long. It was interesting from the beginning to end.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Aryk A tremendous surprise!
I initially went to the movie just because Hugh Jackman was starring. I am a huge fan of his work. The story and setting of the film captivated me the rest of the night after I saw it. I highly recommend this film for anyone.
Rated 4 out of 5 by BigEasyFlickerFan Pretty good epic
This movie has a lot going for it. The leads are attractive. The acting is good. Plenty of "characters". Very scenic. Something of an epic about the spirit of Australia, you might say. But there are negatives. The dialogue is sometimes hard to follow, due to accents, the vocabulary (some peculiar to Down Under), and sometimes the speaking voice is simply too low. And the movie is predictable. You just know the leads are going to spar, separate, rejoin, and love forever; you just know the villains will get their just come-uppance. Altogether, it is enjoyable but holds few surprises.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ButchO Better than we expected
The Internet movie trailer doesn't do this film justice, so there was much more to the story than we anticipated. The movie ran the gamut of emotions, and still managed a relatively happy ending. Cinematography was great, as were the actors' performances. An outstanding film.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Learneditatthemovies Bravo Baz!!!!
With Baz Luhrmann and Nicole Kidman (ala Moulin Rouge), my expectations were high going in. Australia not only met but exceeded them. This movie deserves to be called an epic destined to become a classic. The acting is superb by the entire cast, the story takes you on an incredible journey and Baz's wonder-filled imagination is everywhere. Suspend your need for nothing but gritty reality and go to the movies to be swept away. It may seem like taking a step back in time to the big movies of yesteryear but why not? Thank you Baz Luhrmann and keep them coming. Can't wait for another from you.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wisconsingirl Good solid movie
The movie was a bit predictable, however, it kept my attention the whole way through. I was surprised when the 3 hours was over. some of the special effects were a bit "hokey", but overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.
Rated 4 out of 5 by craig62 pretty good, i liked it. good guys win, good message, strong woman..
