As Aussie as a meat pie, Jack Irish pays off his bad debts (by miruleyall)
From the people behind Rake, Jack Irish is the latest TV movie from Andrew Knight from Rake and SeaChange fame.Guy Peirce is fantastic as Jack Irish.This would be one of the few series i would recommend to non aussies.if you like shows like rake, seachange and spooks as well as the edge of darkness.Such a great story, full of great characters, fantastic locations, flawless cinematography and direction.With 1 down and 3 more to go i will be keeping a close eye on Jack Irish's next adventures.10/10
Brilliant adaptation of brilliant book (by hanne_lore)
I love the Jack Irish novels but I was worried the TV adaptation wouldn't do Peter Temple's writing justice. I was so glad to see my fears were unfounded. The show captured the feel of the book perfectly, from the Fitzroy 'youth club', to Charlie the carpenter, to colourful racing identities and hapless and not so hapless crooks. Loved Guy & Martha's crackling chemistry. Guy's portrayal of Jack was just flawless - a slight sense of tragedy an more than a little darkness but not shutting out the world like some other tortured crime novel protagonists. There's a <more>
real sense of the Australian male: somewhat stoic, no-nonsense, capable, not beholden to rules but not rebellious for the sake of it, with a good dose of humour thrown in. What's not to love? It doesn't hurt that Guy is getting more sexy as the years go by. More than any other book I've read, Peter Temple's writing seems to capture the mood or feeling of Melbourne perfectly and I was so happy to find the same sense of place in this production. I can't wait to see more and will. Be re-watching this. This is such great television.
Let me first say I am not Australian, The island I originate from is on a slightly smaller scale, the Isle of Man!I have read all the Peter Temple books excepting 'White Dog', which I have been unable to get anywhere and was delighted to see that a couple of Jack Irish novels have been transferred to the screen and although I started viewing with trepidation it was soon dispersed as the storyline was spot-on and the acting by all was superb.The characters are portrayed exactly as I imagined as are the various locations are not far off either, especially the pub! Let us hope that more <more>
of the novels are transposed to the screen with the same exemplary skill of all concerned.Now I am off to feast on 'Black Tide'.
Guy Pearce works beautifully with his large and superb supporting cast in Jack Irish while very much being the laid- back centre of the show. It a truly collaborative effort in terms of performances and the script allows for this by sharing around some fabulous dialogue and one-liners. Marta Dusseldorp seems just right as Linda, smart, determined but vulnerable too.The direction is sharp and thoughtful, the design for locations and sense of place is outstanding, plus the pacing, which I would have thought would have driven the script writers up the wall in condensing from the labyrinth plots <more>
of the novel, just hums along.Special shout-out to Roy Billing Harry and the wonderful Aaron Pedersen Cam as Jack's racing skallywag mates: the three of them operate seemingly effortlessly together in this first outing for Jack Irish, very believable. And they keep to that high level in all the subsequent episodes.
I watched this without being aware that it is based on a book. However, I an a fan of Guy Pearce and he played this role with his usual proficiency. The story and plot were solid and engaging, and the faint touches of humour gave a well-rounded polish to a low budget title which holds its own very well. The usual elements of a good thriller plot are there. The pub scenes were probably the best and certainly produced the most chuckles.If there was any complaint, it would probably be that Guy Pearce was too good looking for this role, and I felt that someone moodier and beefier might have done <more>
