Gettin’ Square is about starting over, keeping clean and going straight. Barry Wirth is fresh out of prison and determined to stay on the straight and narrow. But like his mate Johnny ‘Spit’ Spiteri and reformed gangster turned restaurateur Dabba, he finds out the hard way that there are old scores and a few new ones that’ll make getting square a lot harder than he thought.

Film Review

The formula for the Aussie crime caper movie doesn’t change much, the main variable being the amount of violence and gore. ‘Two Hands’ had plenty of both. This film, scripted by Chris Nyst, is light on the violence and strong on humour. As usual, the good bad guys beat the bad good guys (and the really bad bad guys) with some thrills and spills along the way. David Wenham puts in a standout supporting performance as no-hoper junkie Johnny Spitieri. It’s not easy to garner sympathy for a character like this but David has us cheering for him nonetheless. . English actor Timothy Spall fits the role of former crook and aspirant restaurant tycoon Darren like a glove. The characters here are all ‘gettin’ square’, or trying to go straight, but as ever, one last heist is required.The system, of course is stacked against them, despite a pretty and sympathetic probation officer, Annie (Freya Stafford).

Look – this is not a great film. It doesn’t take you anywhere you haven’t been before, it is pure entertainment and nothing more. There’s no intellectual challenge, there’s no emotional connection – this is not an important film.That said, David Wenham’s ‘Spitz’ is just so damn funny!And that’s what this film is for. It’s an entertaining couple of hours. It’s not the saviour of the Australian film industry but it does have a place. Sometimes we just need to kick back, switch off and have a good laugh.Gettin’ Square is funny, light entertainment. It’s just your standard heist flick bordering on The Castle style suburban kitch but it does still stand up on it’s own – just. Perhaps because we are strongly suspect that ‘Spitz’ actually does exist (even if we don’t know him)… and please, Sam Worthington is so hot!
