Animal Kingdom Review

Gritty, harsh and extremely well-acted, this Australian crime drama really gets into the skin of its central characters. So even if the plot meanders rather badly in the final act, it holds our interest and sympathy.

When his mother dies of a heroin overdose, 17-year-old Josh (Frecheville) goes to live with his grandmother Janine (Weaver), whom he hardly knows. He also meets his four uncles (Mendelsohn, Edgerton, Ford and Stapleton), a criminal gang that's being hunted by a tenacious detective (Pearce). Even though he's only watching from the sidelines as his uncles try to change their way of making a living, Josh gets completely entangled in their shady dealings. And as the police start watching him as well, he starts to realise that he'll sink if he doesn't learn to swim.

Sanctum Review

Inspired by a true story and executive produced by underwater-film fanatic James Cameron, this cave-diving thriller has a lot going for it, thanks to a strong cast and high production values. But the script fails to make anything of the premise.

Fit young Aussie Josh (Wakefield) travels to a remote cave in Papua New Guinea with American financier-adventurer Carl (Gruffudd) and his girlfriend (Parkinson). There they join a team, already deep underground, led by Josh's hard-man dad Frank (Roxburgh). Having just discovered a massive new water-filled chamber, everyone's shocked by the accidental death of a team member (Cratchley). And then a tropical storm descends, flooding their base camp and forcing the spelunkers deeper underground in search of another way out. But the already strained team finds it difficult to work together.
