Movie propaganda

Hero. Lover. Dickhead.

Ned Kelly, an icon of Australian history and culture, is a prime subject for a drama of mythical proportions. As if in comic relief of this prospect, Ned goes against this grain and pokes irreverent fun at Australia's popular hero, and pretty much everything else along the way!

Ned hijacks history and turns the Kelly legend on its iron helmeted head!

Theatrical report

Ned is an adolescent's day at the movies replete with bum jokes, fart jokes, gay jokes, gay bum jokes, bum fart jokes and the occasional foray into cross-dressing. Your 14-year-old son/nephew/brother will enjoy it.

In casting himself as the hero, Abe Forsythe has created a reasonable showreel despite the low-brow nature of the humour. He's a good-looking guy with a reasonable amount of talent and I can see him getting lots of work from this.
