Editor's Note
A young policeman in a sleepy community comes face to face with a notorious killer his very first day on the job in this Western drama from Australia. Shane Cooper (Ryan Kwanten) is a lawman looking for a more peaceful life for himself and his wife, Alice (Claire van der Boom), who is expecting a child. Cooper takes a job as the constable of a small town called Red Hill without ever visiting the place, and in his first day on the job, his superior "Old Bill" Jones (Steve Bisley) and his colleagues don't seem to think much of Cooper, while the people of Red Hill seem like a quiet bunch who prefer to be left alone. But the calm in Red Hill is shattered when Jones gets word that convicted killer Jimmy Conway (Tom E. Lewis) has escaped from prison. Ten years ago, Jones captured Conway and put him behind bars, and it's expected that he'll be making tracks to Red Hill to get revenge. And their suspicions are correct; shortly after the lawmen load up their weapons and report to their posts, Conway shows up with a shotgun and begins exacting bloody revenge. But later, when Conway gets the jump on Cooper and things don't end as expected, Red Hill's newest peace officer begins to suspect foul play. RED HILL was the first feature film from director Patrick Hughes.

Expert Review Red Hill - DVD Review
By: Scotty2 Blogcritics.org Reviews

The best way to describe Red Hill would be an Australian Western that is very reminiscent of the Simon Pegg cop comedy Hot Fuzz in terms of the plot (if you haven't seen it, do so). Indeed, it fits the Western mould (horses riding into town, dispensing sweet frontier justice and all that) so perfectly that I only realised it was set in Australia 20 minutes into the movie and the choice to set it there works well as it really convinces that it could be another American Western....read the full review

Let’s face it: as much as many of us love westerns, a lot of the newer entries to the long-lasting and stalwart genre have a nasty habit of not measuring up to our expectations. They can’t all be like the Coen Brothers’ True Grit, now can they? Usually, the modern western formula attempts to capture the very essence of a filmmaker like Sergio Leone or John Ford, but their lackluster ability to convey a story to an audience usually results in a forgettable tale akin to the earliest of John Wayne b-westerns that played at the bijou during the Saturday Matinee....read the full review

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] some salty performances [and] a great score that escalates from mournful acoustic C&W to wiry electric guitar with thundering tom-toms..." 07/01/2011

Bloody-Disgusting 8 of 10
Red Hill uses John Ford characterization, applies a Leone-like setup to its action sequences, and uses a horrific approach for its villain. It's almost the exact opposite of a lot of other recent films, in that the culmination of different ideas and sensibilities that normally don't work well together can if they're put into the hands of a director with a clear vision and a talented cast... - David Harley
