Hello. I am an avid Russell Crowe fan and I have many of his movies. I kept hearing about this one that was done in the early 90's in Australia. Apparently Sharon Stone discovered Riussell in this movie and she wanted him to be in the Quick and the Dead with her. That is how he got his break in America.....I was disappointed not in his acting but the story line was just BRUTAL...white supremacists, neo nazis...s***ty behavior. Mean....

Regards,

Edith Gaspar

Format: VHS Tape
An extremly intense film, Romper Stomper pulls no punches. Shot in a kind of artsy blue haze, the movie revolves around a group of Neo-Nazi skinheads who are attempting to fight off a flood of Vietnamese immigration into Melbourne, Australia. The group is lead by 'Hando' - A strong and charismatic leader played by Russell Crowe. Crowe is amazing as he manages to convey a sence vulnerability beneath his uncompromising anger. A scene in which Crowe qoutes parts of Adolf Hitler's 'Mein Kampf' is mesmerizing. Things begin to disolve, however, when a love triangle begins between Hando, his girlfriend Gabe (Jaqueline McKenzie) and Hando's best friend Davey who is portrayed very low-key by Daniel Pollock. The situation is compounded when an attack on some Vietnamese immigrants back fires and the Skins are forced to defend themselves against a raging mob of immigrants resulting in the loss of their home.
Writer/Director Geoffry Wright came under attack by Leftist critics for not hitting everyone over the head, like American History X, with an anti-racist civics lesson - His position comes across as neutral. Indeed, one can almost sympathize with the group as they are convinced Australia's future depends on its racial and cultural purity.
Without a doubt, this movie is worth owning.

I'm sorry... but if you liked movies such as American History X or This Is England and thought that this might be a similar type of movie and that you might like it as well you will most likely be terribly disappointed as I was. Poor acting, low budget sets, fake fight scenes, no plot... I guess you get the point. Skip this one.

Filmed in gut-wrenching 16mm with a hand held, this is a courageously unsparing film of a neo-Nazi skinhead gang in Melbourne (Australia) obsessed with the danger they perceive in the growing population of Vietnamese immigrants.
Although it has been criticized for "glorifying" skinheads and not taking a moral position against them, neither criticism is really well-founded.
It is clear that the director and the actors made a great effort to get inside the characters, to make them human beings -- however repulsive -- and not simply caricatures. Still, the skinhead lifestyle depicted is mean, mindless, unromantic and, ultimately, pointless. Which becomes clear at the end when the leader (brilliantly played by Crowe) commits one final act of brutal bullying. What was their message really?
Also, for all their posturing, they are mindless bullies, ganging up on isolated victims, and they are completely undone when faced with victims who join forces and fight back with the same intensity. By the end, all but one of the gang members is in jail or dead, which seems to me to be a pretty powerful moral statement.
It is surely not perfect but it features genuinely terrifying performances of men totally twisted and misshapen by hatred, frustration and fear, yet capable of genuine affection and tenderness towards their best friends.
I recommend renting this out if you have some appetite for gore and unflinching visuals.

If there is one thing that ticks me off, it's rascism and fascism. Early Skinheads were definately like this. However over the years, less and less rascist skinheads have been surfacing. Anyway, this movie is a very accurate portrayal of the skinheads, but it also has more than one plot going at once. The epic struggle of the skinheads v.s. the japanese, a skinhead restling with "what am I doing?" question, a girl who has been sexually used by her father, and how that same girl has split two former friend skinheads. It portrays they old lifestyle of drinking, premiscuous sex, drugs, fascism, and the brutal hate crimes they commit. In today's world, where movies are entertainment before anything else, there are fewer and fewer directors who dare to tackle unpleasant subjects. However, the real test of filmmaker's courage comes when unpleasant issues are
approached from even less pleasant perspectives. Such efforts, especially in the climate of "political correctness", can often create public misunderstanding and controversies. Romper Stomper on the other hand is definately an accurate portrayal and does go after the unpleasant topics. The plot begins in Melbourne, town towards which flow the endless river of Asian, mostly Vietnamese, immigrants who gradually take over entire neighbourhoods. For many impoverished and unemployed white youths Asians are convenient explanation for their own misery, so some accepted the most extreme form of xenophobic racism and
became skinheads. The small group led by charismatic Hando(played by Russell Crowe) is just one of many that fight a war for racial purity by mercilessly beating any Asian unfortunate to be in their proximity. After a while, Vietnamese decide that they had enough so they organise and start fighting back.
