This crime thriller starring Heath Ledger is as tight as an alligator’s proverbial and for audiences, it delivers in just about every cinematic way. Comedy, action, crime, romance…it’s all here and wrapped in a nice little package of high production value and great performance.

Ledger – in what we have to say is one of our personal favourites of all of his films  – plays Jimmy a likeable wannabe criminal who finds himself a bagman for a much bigger fish in the seedy underworld of Australia’s sleazy crime capital, Kings Cross. Charged with the responsibility of delivering a cool $10g’s, our hapless small fish decides to go for a dip while dropping off the dosh. What could possibly go wrong?

Jimmy is way over his head but his wild innocence and youthful confidence are perhaps they only two dice he has left to play – and he better hope they don’t come up snake-eyes.

Any way you look at it, Two Hands really pops. With lurid neon-infused colour, naturalistic performance in a heightened environment and an edit that keeps things moving at a cracking pace, it’s impossible not to watch with a fully-fledged smile.

Stars were born in this Australian classic crime-doesn’t-pay morality fable” The Guardian
