Brutal, graphic and highly stylish criminal melodrama featuring a barely recognizable Eric Bana as real life Aussie hard man Mark Brandon Read a.k.a Chopper. Typically Australian (tough, ruthless and uncompromising) in tone, this movie manages to make a homicidal, repellent and nasty piece of work into a largely charismatic and likable character thanks in main to Bana`s performance. Perversely funny, disturbing and wildly unpredictable, Chopper serves as a mesmerizing slice of an Australian underbelly few are familiar with.

It's actually very difficult to tell how much of this film is true, and how much is Read's creative "embellishments"; fact and fiction merge to the point where the same events are shown two or three times to show Read's version, the witness' version and (maybe!) the truth. But what definitely comes through is Chopper's larger than life persona, and he is in turns funny, charismatic, frightening and above all, a stark raving lunatic. He makes Tommy from Goodfellas look like the picture of emotional stability. It is a very interesting character study of a man who has no concept whatsoever of playing by society's rul...
