BMX Bandits Bikes
BMX Bandits is a 1983 Australian adventure crime crisis movie featuring Nicole Kidman.
After a successful Sydney bank robbery at the "Montgomery Street Bank" in which they grabbed $101, 586 (aided by the robbers using pig masks and brandishing shotguns), the guy in control, The employer (Bryan Marshall), plans a further and larger payroll burglary for just two days later on well worth at the very least $1.5 million, wishing which he can trust his less-than-competent group headed by Whitey (David Argue) and Moustache (John Ley) to complete the job precisely, with anyone who does not responding to to him.
Two youthful BMX professionals, P.J. (Angelo D'Angelo) and Goose (James Lugton), meet Judy (Nicole Kidman), who's working as a trolley collector during the Warringah Mall through the college vacations in order to be capable get her own BMX bicycle, and inadvertently get Judy fired from the woman work when they crash into trolleys pushed away because of the regional "Creep" (Brian Sloman). The 3 go out in Goose's dads runabout regarding harbour searching for cockles to offer so that you can fix their crashed bikes, plus getting Judy her own, and stumble onto and take a box of police-band walkie talkies (entirely from the United States of A according to "The Boss") that bank robbers had been hoping to use to monitor on police traffic. Ironically, after taking the box, the children pass Whitey and Moustache who will be to their means inside their high-powered motorboat to pick it up.
The Bayside authorities can hear the kids with the walkie talkies together with Sergeant (Bill Brady) alerts all of them never to use limited police wavelength and tells all of them to turn all of them into the nearest authorities station (causing confusion for their not so brilliant constable (Peter Browne) who is on point-duty at an accident website). Judy, P.J. and Goose are not aware that the robbers know who took the box and they are selling them to other young ones in your community. When they are spotted and chased late during the night through a cemetery by Whitey and Moustache putting on beast masks (going formal according to Whitey), they have the ability to escape. Judy is caught the following day by Whitey and Moustache while getting an additional walkie talkie for Creep, but escapes by using P.J. and Goose. The trio are eventually arrested but escape authorities custody and, with your local kids, launch their own plan to foil the planned payroll burglary.
The movie boils down to a cartoonish chase across opportunistic websites around Sydney, including a memorable escape down the macho Waterworks water slides, filled with BMX bicycles.
The film has also been generally Short Wave for United states bootleg circulation.
Brian Trenchard-Smith had been hired after the manufacturers was in fact impressed by his management of action in . He claims the script had been originally set-in Melbourne but he persuaded them to re-set it in Sydney to make use of that town's places. He set it up on north shores and blogged activity sequences according to "my concept the BMX action becoming placing BMX bicycles in which BMX bicycles aren’t supposed to be." The film was shot over 41 days, a longer than usual shoot due to the labour limitations brought on by the fact many of the cast were under 16. Trenchard-Smith:
I needed to recapture the nature of Ealing comedies and Brit films for the ‘50s and ‘60s that have been demonstrably aimed at kiddies and delivered activity and fun in a largely cartoonish way. If you consider the basic idea of plot, the crooks demonstrably wish to or intend to kill the kids sooner or later, so how do you disguise that and then make that palatable to an audience of young ones and moms and dads? You will be making the crooks buffoonish, the gang that mayn’t take right, making sure that takes the curse off the fundamental purpose.
Nicole Kidman sprained the lady foot during shooting. No feminine stunt double that appeared as if her could be discovered so her bike stunts had been done by an 18-year-old guy in a wig.
