Crocodile Dundee (1986) – Paul Hogan

8.5/10 – An oldie but goldie. This is not a particularly martial arts oriented movie but is based around a character who has outstanding fighting ability not just with his fists and knives but also with throwing blunt objects and in utilising his environment smartly. Mick ‘Crocodile’ Dundee is ab ingeniously skilled survivalist who is in his element in the Australian ‘bush’ but has many a trick up his sleeve on his strange trip to New York too. High budget; plenty of entertaining scenes that keep impressing the viewer; decent supporting cast; and above all, an outstanding concept and lead performance. The sequel in 1988 is equally great, although the third instalment made much later in 2001 was not on the same level.
