MYSTERY ROAD (Sydney Film Festival Release Sydney Australia 2013)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Mystery Road
—fresh, original—again shows the world that Australia produces strong actors and actresses. The story may not be perfect, but it is no ‘shab’ either…the strength of character that comes across the screen completely sells the movie. It easily earns its WOW! factor based on that factor alone. Good watch for mystery fans, it takes the detective side of mystery, sets it in the outback, and then tells it like it is. This movie sets itself up easily to become a hit television series.
