movie of all time. This film makes Mick Jagger look like the real Kelly.
This film was so unbelievably just bull shit, there is no real way to explain
I can try to give you an account of the ghostly recollection. Ned
"Yahoo" Kelly , and his family live on a remote desert island, called
Glenrowan (what can I say?) and robbed banks and hands the loot over to
the poor. While robbing a bank in outer Sydney, he meets a half hearted, Shakespeare
reading , American, whom couldn't get a job as a hot-dog seller then a bank
manager as in the film, meets Ned and falls in love.
The bank managers eventually band together to takes Ned's
"Wilderness" as Ned's girlfriend recalled in an American tone. The
bank want one million dollars for the return of the national park, so Ned heads
for the U.S.A to rob a bank and return home to buy the island.
His un successful attempts to rob an American bank, he heads home to fight it
out at the Glenrowan hotel as on his island, he wins the fight and wins the
glory of this disgusting film.
