Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman star in Baz Luhrmann's outback western slash romantic fantasy slash ww2 slash ham-fisted social statement film. There is a lot of cheese, cliches and beefcake here. The good guys are angelic and the bad are extremely wickedly so. The sets are almost too gorgeous. And yet...I liked it. It tries to go the classic epic route and that nostalgic approach works, mostly. I don't remember this one getting much praise when it was in theaters but I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it.
