Set against the scenic backdrop of pre-World War II Australia, Baz Luhrmann's romantic period adventure stars Nicole Kidman as an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch, and a href="http://www.blockbuster.com/catalog/personDetails/234212">Hugh Jackman as the rough-and-tumble cattle driver who helps protect her property from greedy English cattle barons. As the pair attempt to herd 2,000 head of cattle hundreds of miles across the treacherous Australian outback, they are stunned to bear witness to the bombing of Darwin by Japanese forces -- who just a few months prior launched a devastating attack on Pearl Harbor.
Let me start off with I'm not a big fan of Nicole Kidman. I had been putting off watching this movie because she was in it. I ended up not hating her in this one and thinking she did a pretty good job. Then there is Hugh Jackman who I have loved as Wolverine in the X-men movies. I think he made a great cowboy and I think he is a real hotty. I liked this movie it had a good story and the scenery was beautiful. I'm going to give this movie 4 stars out of 5.
