1 i The movie Ned Kelly is telling the audience about Australian history and that Australia is not a perfect country but struggles with criminals as well It also conveys racism not against blacks but against the Irish This is now dispelled as Ned Kelly is known as the Australian hero not the Irish Migrant of Australia hero The Kelly family were always the target of the soldiers fun Friendship is portrayed as being vital as the gang of outlaws would not have been able to achieve what they did if their bonds were not as strong A barrier between classes was also evident in the movie which is applicable to those times and even in modern times ii The movie presents Ned Kelly as a hero more than being a murderous villain For once the audience believes that the police are the villains and hope that Ned Kelly can outrun them subsequently escaping to safety Towards the end of the film during the final shoot-out Kelly is especially viewed as a hero when he staggers out of the pub in his infamous armour and leaves himself open to the polices gunfire He is seen fighting to his death and killing many men in the meantime The audience is left feeling as though Ned Kelly is a hero iii Ned Kelly is good history as his story is different to other heroes such as Burke and Wills Kelly was dangerous bold and rebellious which in a way is how Australians would want to see themselves if compared to a national hero Even though many people suffered and died at the hands of Kelly it was his persistence against all the odds Most did not hold faith in Kellys ability to succeed but he did succeed by dying with honour iv I was not aware of the finer details of Ned Kelly so the movie left me with a different opinion of him
