A little western movie from down under staring the popular HBO Heartthrob Ryan Kwanten (True Blood’s Jason Stackhouse) is getting a limited release on this side of the planet November 5th, and a trailer is online.
Sony Pictures Australia releases:
RED HILL follows young police officer Shane Cooper (Ryan Kwanten) as he relocates to the small country town of Red Hill with his pregnant wife Alice (Claire van der Boom) to start a family. But when news of a prison break sends the local law enforcement officers – led by the town’s ruling presence, Old Bill (Steve Bisley) – into a panic, Shane’s first day on duty rapidly turns into a nightmare. Enter Jimmy Conway (Tom E. Lewis), a convicted murderer serving life behind bars, who has returned to the isolated outpost seeking revenge. Now caught in the middle of what will become a terrifying and bloody confrontation, Shane will be forced to take the law into his own hands if he is to survive.
Looks alright, but a little confusing with the very western looking outfits and the modern day town and cars and such. At first I thought it was a traditional western but then things popped up that didn’t fit.
Not sure how all that works in this.
