Reviewing The Dry in 2020, for ScreenHub, Mel Campbell wrote:
There’s something intelligent about Eric Bana’s screen presence that always makes him a pleasure to watch, even though he’s sometimes seemed miscast. (King Arthur’s dad? A vengeful Romulan? A time-travelling romantic? Henry VIII?) He’s great in The Dry, which should satisfy Australian viewers looking for a solidly entertaining film. Perhaps its setting will also appeal to international viewers – are heat and drought an exotic answer to the snow in a Nordic noir?ScreenHub reviews The Dry
Force of Nature: The Dry 2 is in Australian cinemas from 24 August 2023.
