Let's all be honest. We watched this movie because we wanted to see how terrible of an actress Nicole Kidman was in the beginning of her career. BUT I really wouldn't say her performance was THAT bad. Honestly it was very cute listening to her thick Aussie accent. The movie is pretty fun if you go into it with the mindset of it being pretty cheesy and ridiculous. I'll keep it in my movie collection for sure.
The acting was bad. The stunts were obviously done by doubles. The action was completely unbelievable (I loved the magical off-screen use only tracking and teleportation device in the bad guys car) the story and plot were thin and full of holes.
I loved it.
This is exactly the cheesy flick kids love to veg out on. There's nothing too complicated to comprehend, just one scene poorly connected to the next.
For those of you with the up-tight American "proper" mindset some of the dialog is a little racier than would be allowed in a modern G, maybe PG feature. No real dirty words, just the occasional sexual dialog that just a little over the line for the strong conservative mindset that I'm guessing is completely in the clear for Australia during the early 80's when this was shot. It's not Disney clean, but might be just within Dreamworks clean.
BMX Bandits is just pure fun. Don't expect to be blown away or even enjoy yourself as you watch Nocole Kidman and two Aussie bike bros stumble into the best action packed BMX romp centered around finding a bunch of walkie talkies. I'll definitely be returning to this movie next time I need to be transported to the BMX fad of the late 80s early 90s! FIVE STARS!!!!
