TWO HANDS

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 90 minutes

STUDIO: Miramax

RELEASE DATE: 12-6-2005

VIDEO: 1.85:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)

AUDIO: English 5.1 Dolby Digital

Subtitles: Spanish, English Captions.

ANALYSIS: TWO HANDS is a boring film for the first half until it decides to kick itself in the butt and push the action and story. TWO HANDS was done earlier in Heath's Ledger career. He would later re-team with director GREGOR JORDAN for the superior NED KELLY. The film revolves around Jimmy (Ledger) who is hired (by the local crime boos played by Bryan Brown) to delievr some money to a woman who just happens to die before he can hand it off to her. Jimmy gets stupid and decides to go to the beach and try back later. He buries the money which two young thieves go and steal while he's off for a swim. He finds the money is gone and goes to desperate lengths to pay back the crime boss. He becomes part of a job to rob a bank. The job has it's problems and Jimmy's life becomes very messy during this film including meeting the right girl, Alex (Rose Byrne). TWO HANDS does make a big misstep by inclduing Jimmy's dead brother who escapes from Hell to help Jimmy out (without Jimmy knowing it). TWO HANDS is only worth a rental and Heath Ledger fans will want to check out this made for Showtime Austraila feature.
