The Proposition- Review By: Roger Moore

Directed By: John Hillcoat

Written By: Nick Cave


Score: Technical: 10, Story:20, Acting: 15, Overall Score: 15%


            A man must try and save his younger brother from the noose and his definite death, to be hung on Christmas Day, but to save his younger brother he must kill his older brother.  This is the proposition given to him by the police that lead the hunt for the three brothers wanting nothing more than all of them to pay for the crimes that they have committed.  A western set in Australia based on actual events. 

            Technically the film was done with some form of decency but it did lack in many areas, but over all from what I watched the filming was not horrible.

            This film is on the low side of things receiving no skipped beats on the Roger Moore movie scale.  I only say this because I only watched about half and hour of this movie before I decided to turn it off, there was just something about it that I couldn’t sit thru and I still don’t know why that is.  The story was a real good idea and being based on actual events made it that much more interesting but I just couldn’t seem to hold it down.  The acting wasn’t al that great and the filming was set up as a gritty old style western, so it was a formula for success but it just came up short in the enjoyment category. As always be afraid, be very afraid.
