Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 06/13/2003
"...Amusingly gamy....It enjoys the asset of a grimy, slightly mildewy atmosphere....It also offers a few tart rip-off scenes and a performance of back-alley bravura by Guy Pearce in the lead..."
Box Office - 07/01/2003
"...With actors as commanding as the extraordinary Guy Pearce and Rachel Griffiths leading the cast, this Australian import's emphasis on strong, affectionately drawn characters gives it an emotional pull rare for the genre..."
USA Today - 06/20/2003
"...THE HARD WORD finds something new in the prison and heist genres....Writer/director Scott Roberts spices the mix by tossing in two extraordinarily compelling women..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/20/2003
"...THE HARD WORD interests us in ways we don't expect. It has a mordant sense of humor and gift for character and incident that has attracted two of Australia's best actors -- Guy Pearce and Rachel Griffiths..."
Total Film - 04/01/2004
"[The film] stands out thanks to Guy Pearce's presence."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2004
"Roberts' macho heist thriller is strikingly shot..."
Uncut - 09/01/2004
"Pearce and Griffiths are in top hear....Bitter, tough and funny."
