Film Review

Andrew Dominik writes and directs this film adapted from the semi-autobiographical books by Mark Brandon Read – nicknamed "Chopper" by the Melbourne underworld because of torture tactics he used to employ while interrogating and collecting money from drug dealers. "Chopper" is a dark, brutal and often times funny film about one of Australia's most notorious criminals. Read has since left his life of crime behind, and as the film states at the end, he is one of the best selling writers living in Australia at the moment ("And I can't even spell!). Chopper Read himself recommended that Eric Bana be the actor to portray him… and what a choice he made. He couldn't have picked anyone better. Bana spent time with Read and gained loads of weight for this truly manic and searing performance. It's like nothing I've ever seen before… he is truly magnificent. The make-up for the transformation of Chopper from a young man in prison in 1976, to …

This is a entertaining prison flick that revolves around a tough as nails prisoner. Even if not all of the scenes takes place in prison. In fact I was shocked to find out a lot of the scenes don't take place in prison. Although this movie came out before "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" which is another movie directed by the same director. The movie about the last days of Jesse James was shot very well with some of the most beautiful cinematography I ever seen. I found this movie to be more entertaining and gritty, even the cinematography looks gritty intentional or not. It's mainly because of the way it went with the lighting, especially the prison scenes. Now although this film is a bit more entertaining it lacks the noteworthy performances from other cast members and scenery with some great music "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" has. But this movie still excels in other departments. Now prisoners …

This is such a great movie. This is one of those movies you actually look forward to hearing Chopper's voice on the informational viewing of the movie. It's awesome. Eric Bana is a movie star who is and has been so underrated. It's too bad this movie is so well known in just Ausralia and not anywhere else. I found out about it from living in Oz. If you liked Chopper, check out Romper Stomper with, omg I just went blank….the guy who played in the Gladiator. Anyways, Chopper, a truly awesome movie, AND even though it's just an "adaptation", everything but ONE thing is true about the entire movie. So, check out the version of the movie with Mark Chopper Read chit chatting along with the movie and find out which part isn't true! It's kind of funny.
