Chopper tells the intense story of Mark "Chopper" Read, a legendary criminal who wrote his autobiography while serving a jail sentence in prison.
His book, "From the Inside", upon which the film is based, was a best-seller.
I liked the way the film started with a very bleak and down-to earth approach to the whole set-up.
Some interesting low-life characters planning a robbery always catches my attention.
If anything, it steps up a gear when Brad Pitt enters the scene and I'm really beginning to get into it.
Sadly, it wasn't to last, when the James Gandolfini character appears it does take a bit of a dive.
He seems a bit of a wasted character; only there to pad the thing out a bit.
It's a shame because I really liked Gandolfini as an actor and felt this was not a fair reflection of his talent.
Some very interesting effects were used and I found these very interesting.
The use of slow motion in one particular assassination scene was quite breathtaking.
There is also a scene depicting the world from a drug addict's point of view that looked pretty strange too.
Over all, it's one of those that I think I'll have to watch again to fully appreciate.
