Australia (2008)

This movie was all over the place in a bad way. The first half of the movie is exciting. But then it resolves the primary issue only to linger on and open up new issues. The movie Casino Royale (2006) had, to a lesser extent, the same problem. The beginning of the film also had this uplifting and humorous atmosphere. Whereas the film changes direction and becomes serious towards the end. Personally, I started getting bored towards the end.

Overall, the movie was okay.

I realized not too long ago that I prefer watching story-driven movies and thus when this movie lost a concrete drive, I began to lose interest.
