“I really enjoyed The Dry when it came out a few years back. I thought it was a good adaptation of the book (which I still have not read) and thought it had some solid drama in it aswell. Eric Bana played a decent role as the protagonist of that film, and the film had a diverse Australian cast with good characters of different cultures, genders and age differences.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo when I heard that a sequel was coming out, I went to the nearest local Australian cinema to support the national film industry, in which for this film is Screen Australia and Village Roadshow.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI was surprised that this film held up quite well, despite it being very visually different to the first. While the first film was in a remote, dry, dusty (and frankly quite boring looking) rural town in Inland Australia. This film takes place in a wet subtropical Victorian forest which what looks like was after a period of some very heavy rain. The location is constantly wet, damp looking and the creeks and waterfalls are gushing. I have to applaud the cast and crew to committing to this location in this type of weather because it looked very difficult to shoot.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are scenes where characters get swept away in a river current, standing on the top of a waterfall and traversing over some very slippery looking terrain which was not the case for the first movie. Also the story was reasonbly interesting and at times took some good mental energy to follow, which I appreciate. I do like how the story did take some good twists and turns and wasnu0026#39;t dumbed down and spoon-fed like in shows like the modern version of Neighbours and Home and Away. Overall, a very solid sequel throughout.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e2024 is proving to be a very interesting and hopeful year for the Australian Film and Television industry with the Netflix adaptation of Boy Swallows Universe becoming a hit, Bluey becoming more popular that it has ever been before, this movie and Furiosa releasing only a couple of months from now. Itu0026#39;s a pretty exceptional time to be in the Aussie film industry and being a fan of Australian filmmaking.”
