It isn't a masterpiece, but it is a good-hearted, sweet comedy, featuring an overland chase that isn't original but sure is energetic. Roger Ebert.

Rachel Perkins directs with a sense of fun and all the creatives provide valuable support in design, music and cinematography - the latter by the talented and multi-award winning Andrew Lesnie, whose lighting works beautifully in all scenes, including some challenging external and interior moments.
