What are people saying?

  • OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Underground

    A safe, family-friendly romp that riffs heavily on War Games (1983). Underground concerns itself with a very small slice of time in Assange's formative youth. It's nostalgia heavy Melbourne-centric world is familiar and a little tragic. Alex Williams is the stand-out here as the rest of the tech and police-work is clunky and overly simplified. 3 stars
