Critic Reviews of "Australia"Time OutJanuary 05, 2009
It's a fine romp, epic in both ambition and visuals if not narrative - and if director Baz Luhrmann had stopped at the end of the love story's trajectory, the audience would have left entirely happy.At the MoviesDecember 02, 2008
There's a lot to admire here, but not enough.Wall Street JournalDecember 01, 2008
Sometimes Luhrmann seems to be living in a Dreamtime of his own; his movie is all over the map. But what a gorgeous map it is.New YorkerDecember 01, 2008
Luhrmann is drawn to kitsch as inevitably as a bear to honey.I.E. WeeklyNovember 27, 2008
Luhrmann labors to frame his work as a grandiose social problem film -- rarely has a movie tried so hard, and so fruitlessly, for our loveGuardianJanuary 29, 2016
The effect of watching a Baz Luhrmann film is indistinguishable from the effect of having a crater-sized parcel of glitter dropped on your head.QuickflixOctober 21, 2014
What a pleasant surprise to discover that the film has earned its sweeping title.East Bay ExpressAugust 16, 2011
Throw out the beefcake, the Stilton cheese, and the sub-Dynasty empire-building bushwah.What CultureMarch 24, 2011
A funny frankenstein that's worth seeing just to point and laugh at.Suite101.comSeptember 25, 2010
"Australia" occasionally stumbles into corny sidesteps like Hugh Jackman's "Oh, crikey" catchphrase. But Baz Luhrmann mythologized his homeland as American directors like John Ford did with Westerns - dramatic-license exaggerations that pay off in droves.Matt's Movie ReviewsJuly 06, 2010
Australia is an enchanting throwback to an era of filmmaking which strived to entertain its audiences with dazzling spectacle and melodrama.
