#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Despite being no saint herself, Julia Cody has shielded her seventeen year old son, Joshua “J” Cody, from her Melbourne-based criminal relatives who they have not seen in years. After Julia dies in front of J’s eyes from a self-inflicted heroin overdose, J, who is slightly detached from life, feels he has no choice but to contact his maternal grandmother, Janine “Smurf” Cody, the family matriarch, for a place to live. Smurf rules the family with a borderline incestuous love over her three sons, the quietly menacing Andrew “Pope” Cody, the hyperactive Craig Cody, and the barely of age Darren Cody. Pope and his best friend, Barry “Baz” Brown, are armed robbers, with Darren their up and coming apprentice, while Craig is a mid level drug dealer. Melbourne’s Armed Robbery Squad is after specifically Pope, who is hiding out. But when the standoff between the Codys and the Armed Robbery Squad is brought up a notch, an all out war ensues, with some casualties and J caught in the middle. The only grounding in J’s life is his girlfriend, Nicky Henry. With those casualties comes an investigation by Homicide Detective Senior Sergeant Nathan Leckie, who knows the Codys are involved in some of those deaths. As Leckie tries to get J on his side, J has to figure out how best to get himself out from the middle, where he trusts neither side. J also wants to figure out how to exact what he considers justice in an all around bad situation.
Plot: Following the death of his mother, J finds himself living with his estranged family, under the watchful eye of his doting grandmother, Smurf, mother to the Cody boys. J quickly comes to believe that he is a player in this world. But, as he soon discovers, this world is far larger and more menacing than he could ever imagine. J finds himself at the center of a cold-blooded revenge plot that turns the family upside down.

Animal Kingdom unleashes an unfaltering roar across Australia. The animal kingdom, a hierarchical group of biological creatures that zoologically determine species that are predacious by nature or hunted down by those stronger than them. It is the laws of nature, Darwinism, that the mighty feed on the weak. Natural selection. We, specifically as human apex predators, do what we must in order to increase our survivability odds. For the Cody family, a familial crime syndicate based in Melbourne, that results in suppressing even the most friendly of noises. Their successful drug-distribution has enabled them to purchase a myriad of luxuries in life, including a quaint abode where seventeen year-old Josh stays after his mother overdoses on heroin. With no alternative shelter, he nestles into the heart of the Cody family tree, commanded by the sweet innocent matriarch who’d do anything and everything to see her boys home and safe.

Michôd based this fictitious story on the Pettingill family, where a pair of brothers were acquitted for slaughtering two police officers at point blank range. Offering an apt yet palpable string of tension that questions the utilisation of firearms, a measure to prevent anarchy not commence it, and the lengths a family will partake in for the sake of hereditary aggregation. His screenplay is smart, boasting a range of unexpectedly intelligent character choices that defy typical tropes within other comparative gangster features. If a main character bravely meets their early demise, it’s executed with no padding or fuss. Bang! Suddenly, Michôd moves on. An irrefutably powerful and perceptible technique that accompanied the meticulously concise script that he had written.

The Cody family members are developed substantially, with their affection for each other explicitly displayed for added finesse. The line between psychopathy and scrupulous behaviour is depicted through the character of “Pope”. His outrageous criminal activity tests the loyalty of his brothers whilst embedding a commanding presence within the family. We may view the shenanigans through Josh’s innocent perspective, yet somehow Michôd transforms these detestable characters into, well, protagonists. His attentive detail in illustrating the affectionate bonds within the family, instantly adds a light touch of self-justification for their crimes. Impeccably clever, to turn a group of murderous individuals into something more affable.

None of this though would’ve been possible without the sensational performances all-round, with three highlights in particular. Mendelsohn showed the world how brutal his antagonistic capabilities can be, with an arresting performance that cemented his talents almost immediately. Pearce, portraying the “good cop” by convincing Josh not to become a criminal, balances the ethical and moral dilemmas that the main character encounters with a soothingly calm performance. Then Weaver, capitalising on her sweet demeanour, venomously encourages the family through her captivating matriarchal performance. The Brando of Melbourne, perhaps?

Frecheville lacked emotional conviction, mostly offering a monotonously one-dimensional approach, that forced his uncles to be more enticing as individuals. Occasionally Doolan’s sublime editing consequently resulted in the script feeling somewhat scattershot, particularly in the second act, where the tension dissipated after the shopping centre scene. The introduction of the family’s barrister before the court hearing was also spontaneous, resulting in Phillips’ performance being less than impressive.

Still, Animal Kingdom is quite simply one of Australia’s greatest exports. Tight, taut and packed full of explosive performances that provide an animalistic bite to this crime story. A rejuvenated modern-take on the classic gangster formula.

Another solid and subtle film coming out of Australia. Catch it.
I don’t know what it is about Australian cinema and filmmakers these past 15 years, but they are just getting better and better. OK, so we here in the Northern Hemisphere don’t necessarily get to see the dross. Granted. But what we do see shows that there’s talent galore down under. There are, of course, talented actors, writers, cinematographers and directors around the world, but at the moment Australia seems to have found its own voice, its own style which is not just unique, but interesting, accomplished and gripping.

Unlike so much high-energy Hollywood dreck, Animal Kingdom relies on a good script, a gripping story, good acting, solid characterisation and great directing. There is no gratuitous flashiness to cover up bald patches. This particular film’s style is minimalist, the camera hand-held (as far as I can see) throughout. But that doesn’t lead to tricksy artiness.

It allows the actors to act – it’s what they do best after all – with none of them falling back onto the schtick they are always hired for – Bruce Willis being Bruce Willis, Tom Cruise being Tom Cruise, you get the picture. All I can say is if you get the chance to catch this, catch it. Oh, and keep making them, Australia.

“Pineapple Express” With Red Paintball Guns and Australian Accents
The “animals” in this “kingdom” are three mentally disabled brothers, their mother (who kisses them on the mouth O, My Goodness Gracious, I’m Shocked) and their nephew who has had a lobotomy. They also have another brother who apparently wandered in from the set for “The Lovely Bones” (rejected for the Stanely Tucci part).

There is nothing suspenseful or sinister about this movie or clan of characters. The only tension is on the soundtrack; some pinched strings. These clowns never do anything. They are as threatening as the guys in “Pineapple Express”.

This movie is like a Marx Brothers comedy. The plots lines are dropped, the narrative flies all over the place, people say and do the dumbest things… you cant imagine. The main character is Harpo Marx; because he never speaks, he is mute. There is a “cute” brother (Zeppo), a ringleader (Groucho) and a follower (Chico)… and in this case an extra brother, the Pedophile.

The first part of the movie concerns the family hiding the Pedophile from the police because they “have the goods on him”. When the police close in in him, they turn and blast Groucho with red paintballs. The one they have been chasing, they let walk away. The Pedophile is so upset, he gets the other two brothers to blast a couple of cops with red paintball guns. The police then have no trouble bringing the Pedophile into the station but they let him go.

Understand this: the whole movie so far has been about the police trying to apprehend this guy, they kill his brother instead (for no reason), they catch him and they let him go. Got it? Up to speed? Now the movie becomes about the police trying to use Harpo to testify against his brothers. Except: he doesn’t really know anything. I mean, he really doesn’t know anything. He is absolutely totally useless as a witness because… he doesn’t know anything.

It goes on and on with characters doing the dumbest things you don’t really want to know. (This person is innocent so I will kill them. This person is trying to kill me, I will go visit them.) Jackie Weaver has gotten a lot of press about her role. Her character is cut from the same cloth as Rose Tyler’s mom in Doctor Who (“sexy”, overweight, blond bimbo with raccoon eyes). That character contains mountains more of emotional impact than the mother in this movie. Like everyone else in this movie, she says and does things on whims, so nothing she says or does has any meaning or impact because it is not grounded in any logic whatsoever.

What a bunch of dumb animals.
