Eric Bana stars as the eponymous Chopper, Australia’s most notorious and celebrated criminal figure, in what’s been lauded as the “performance of a lifetime”. This brutally gripping true-crime feature received critical acclaim on its original release in 2000, and now Andrew Dominik’s directorial debut gets the Limited Edition Blu-ray treatment from Second Sight Films. It will also be released in Standard Blu-ray format.


Dominik’s (Blonde, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) shocking and darkly entertaining film takes us into the violent world of Australia’s most infamous figure – Mark ‘Chopper’ Read – who conquered Victoria's brutal underworld single-handedly, in a film based on his memoirs.

Bana (Black Hawk Down, Hulk, Troy) shows his acting chops in this seminal, career defining role of bonafide villain Chopper, and he brings the outrageous true story to the screen with maximum force. The brutality and nonchalance of the life and crimes of the one-man mafia, who takes on anyone who gets in his way, plays out unflinchingly on screen and is definitely not for the faint-hearted.
