There’s a reason why classics are classics, and that’s because they fulfill a basic human thirst for romance, adventure, the fellow getting the girl, and the good guys coming out on top. Nicole Kidman dares to be herself in this film, and turns in her best performance ever. As for Hugh Jackman, he couldn’t be more appealing. The bad guys are bad, the good guys persevere, and Australia is the sort of movie they don’t make anymore, but should. That’s entertainment.
