The Aussies sure have a way with chase films, keeping the moves motivated and logical, with no gratuitous cars flipping over and burning.

Saved only by some neat stunts and the splendour of the Australian landscape.

A feast of kitsch and gaudy colour, set to the tune of an 80s synth soundtrack, the film plays like a G-rated music video. And Trenchard-Smith maintaining a buzzing energy throughout.

It’s a Down Under Goonies wannabe about three wisecracking kids shredding on their bikes as they’re chased by bungling bank robbers. But the baby-faced Kidman is easily the best thing in it.
