I didn't dig the second instalment of this movie as much as the first. There were two reasons for this: firstly, Tom Burlinson (my first ever crush) was too made up – he had bleached hair and a dodgy tan. Secondly, it suffers from the tragedy that a lot of sequels do – this follows on the footsteps of a massive story (the epic ‘Man From Snowy River’ poem, Banjo Patterson) – and this follow up doesn't cover the bases that the previous one does. One thing that I think was wrong was that the protagonist gets the girl very early on in the movie – ‘The Chase’ is over in the first 20 minutes!! The rest of it is really good – images of burgeoning Australia, great horse chase footage, beautiful scenery – it's just a bugger that Tom won Sigrid so early on !! Maybe I'm just jealous it wasn't me though :)
After spending some time away from his hometown, Jim Craig, the original man from Snowy River, returns to find his lady love forced into an unwanted engagement by her overbearing father. Once again, Jim has to prove his mettle to win the girl.
Shot in Panavision and Eastmancolor. Geoff Burrowes also produced the previous film in the series, "The Man from Snowy River" (1982).
"...A big, old-fashioned melodramatic adventure..."
