| Good guys, bad guys, and bigger bad guys, in a crime pic that's right on the money
Here's one solid action crime pic, that does Adelaide proud, brilliantly cast, with so many lovable Aussie actors, two of them from Skippy, Armaguard drivers who side together, to go up against some bad apples in the company. Actually there's a few, as well as a few outside influences too, some of them ruthlessly violent and manipulative. The whole engrossing affair, that involves Armaguard employee brothers, Brown and Donovan showing raw acting style, planning a brilliant robbery, building a replica van and all, is thwarted, when outside influences, led by Charles Bud Tingwell, hear of it. Fatally defying the big guys, Donavan pays for it big, resulting in that notorious toe cutting scene, with a big oaf torturer, more than happy to do it. Very researched and solidly structured as a brick wall, the movie never dulls. It just keeps on moving. So caught up in it, you forget where the 101 minutes went. Although filmed in Sydney also, Adelaide'ns will recognize numerous locations, like Rolley Park, West Terrace cemetery, and Port Road, opposite Bonython Park, where on instinct, two mentioned Armaguard guys, foil a break in, by showing some Dirty Harry tactics. Devereux and Bonner were great to watch here, Bonner a favourite Oz actor of mine, who I still remember clearly, buying it big, in a fatal episode of Cop Shop. There's a little guilty humour too, mostly on Tingwell's part as the untouchable honcho of the corrupt operation, where bent PI, a smooth natured Cassell, who I really liked in this, is the only one who walks away, untarnished. The Money Movers is very violent in parts, even for it's day, and it's great to the better half of Candy Raymond naked, who has her own reasons for getting nice and cosy with Bonner. Lucky Grills is fun too and must have one ditzy female employee. I mean, who doesn't know who Errol Flynn is. Slick crime Aussie pic, an always memorable classic oldie.
