    There's something in Ned Kelly' that's lost in the translation from Australia to America, and the overly emotional film score is just a symptom. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    The movie, which has a rusty photographic veneer, is monotonous and drags toward the end. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The result is a handsome, action-packed biographical drama with a credibility gap wider than the screen. show more
