Well Directed and Well Shot Felony is a Great Drama about a Man who did a big Mistake..

An accident involving a young child sets off a chain of events that brings an Australian police officer's world crashing down. Felony is a great non stop thriller with full tension and some really great performances by Joel Edgerton, Tom Wilkinson and even Jai Courtney gave a really good and believable performance. This is a film that everyone needs to see if you definitely love this kind of dramatic films about Cops, there is a lot of tension and you have to be patient with this movie because if you except some buddy cop action film you will be disappointed but overall this was a really good film and i'm gonna give it an 8/10

The agony of choice.

After a few drinks celebrating not being killed during a bust, a police detective clips a cyclist with his car, rendering the young rider into a coma. Covering up the facts of the accident, with help from a superior, his conscience starts to attack both his state of mind, and that of his life at home. Something which is noticed by an up-coming young detective...

Ooh, the agony, the moral conundrum. It's pretty much a morality play, one that is very well mounted by the makers. Written and starring Joel Edgerton, it also stars Tom Wilkinson, Jai Courtney and Melissa George. After a quick-fire opening the pic settles into a brooding sense of emotional torture, a slow burn approach that casts caustic eyes over police cover ups and the folly of the human condition. A potential romantic thread feels unnecessary, while some of the dialogue leaves a lot to be desired, but with Wilkinson shining, Mark Wareham's photography the same, it's a better than average morally tinged drama. Though the ending will infuriate some... 6/10

Another boy from Oz

This is one of those films that can't fail to impress you with how clever some filmmakers are.

The story of a traffic accident involving a detective, Mal Toohey (Joel Edgerton), and his attempt to cover it up, and the attempt by another policeman, Jim Melic (Jai Courtney), to find the truth, doesn't sound all that special in a synopsis, but this film is so well done and has so many layers that it is one the most intriguing movies of it's kind you are likely to see.

The portrayal of the police is fascinating. We see the danger of the job, and the hierarchy that exists between the older, senior officers and the younger police. We also see the brotherhood of the predominantly male culture that protects its own.

This is a gritty and intense drama with a cast in top form. However, Tom Wilkinson just about steals the show as veteran cop, Carl Summer, who attempts to solve problems using both sides of the law. He also nails a very passable Aussie accent.

The film features two beautiful women: Melissa George and Sarah Roberts. The stunning Roberts, who plays Ankhila Sarduka, an Indian woman, looks far too exotic to be simply called Sarah Roberts. All the stars deliver clearly defined and believable characters.

There were also considerable talents on the other side of the camera. Director Matthew Saville, steers the drama from one powerful scene to the next. He had previously written and directed "Noise", another offbeat Australian police drama that also rejuvenates a well-worn genre.

The film has a very good score by Bryony Marks who also happens to be married to Saville. This is a fairly straightforward score compared to the edgier one she composed for "Noise". She's beginning to be a name that can sit comfortably with notable Australian film composers such as Bruce Smeaton, Nigel Westlake, David Hirschfelder and Barrington Pheloung.

Joel Edgerton not only stars in the film but also wrote it. The dialogue is sharp with Tom Wilkinson getting some of the best lines - but it needed his grizzled old copper to give them the right voice.

Edgerton followed "Felony" with "The Gift" (actor, writer, director) proving that it was no fluke. I think this bloke must be one of the most talented sons ever to emerge from Blacktown. It's not just the Australian film industry that is the richer for his presence. I for one will be on the lookout for whatever he does next.
