Portrait of the notorious outlaws of ''The Kelly-gang''. It paints a picture of a group of outcasts who fight the legal authorities because they are mistreated time and again. Their struggle takes shape when the public begins to adore them as some sort of Irish freedom fighters. Starring Heath Ledger, Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush.

I let this film pass me by at the time because of the negative reviews it received, but in the end it was not too bad for me. It is a beautifully portrayed western, in which Heath Ledger in particular excels as the oldest member of the clan. His early death is a huge loss for the film world.

Unfortunately, the makers seem to want to cram too much into the film, which makes it seem a bit unbalanced at times. Some plot twists are just a tad too fast to really get in touch with the characters. But there are beautifully kept sets and costumes on the other hand. And a beautiful ending sequence, in which ''the brothers'' dress like true knights in armor to fight an impossible battle. In the end, the film could have been much stronger, but it is definitely recommended for fans of the western.

Somehow a disappointment. I had high expectations because of the big names. The only thing I knew beforehand is that I don't like movies set around 1880. Not my cup of tea. Well, we gave it a shot because of the actors. And no, it's not all bad. It's a great narration of his life. The guys in this film do a great job. That's absolutely not the problem.. Well, against your better judgement, watching a film that doesn't really suit you, then you ask for it yourself. Sometimes you will be surprised, other times you will be disappointed.

Although I do agree with Tarkus that Ledger has played one of his better roles.
