Impressive sequel worthy of recognition
Such a masterpiece as the first of these two Snowy River films was, the
sequel to The Man From Snowy River is everything that a follow-up should
It does not tread on the toes of its predecessor, preferring to leave the
legend that was the first film live on in some unique immortality.
The Man From Snowy River II is based upon the return of Jim Craig to the
Snowy River country after a three year absence. The film subtly tells a
of change in the nineteenth century, of Australian history, legend and
horses. The storyline demonstrates a touch of Hollywood in lighter shades,
an aspect that was absolutely absent in the first film, yet this blends
uniquely with the a distinct sense of Australian patriotism. The plot is
more vibrant than the first film, and much more showy, with particular
aspects of the previous incorporated into the film, yet The Man From Snowy
River II possesses every essential characteristic of the first film;
sensationally beautiful cinematography, a stunning focus of the Australian
high country, the second most impressive footage of horses ever filmed, and
a fantastic and deeply moving soundtrack by Bruce Rowland which equals the
first in every way.
Geoff Burrowes has done a superb job with this film, and it is highly
of recognition, especially with regard to the quality of the Australian
Industry. The lead cast, from Tom Burlinson to Sigrid Thornton, and a
well-replaced Brian Dennehy, carry off their parts with as much passion and
distinction as the first film. As far as sequels can go, The Man From Snowy
River II is a masterpiece; a deeply moving and inspirational experience yet

Blind Side is a great story about what someone can do if given the opportunity.
The most outstanding movie of all time..
i didn't think this this sequel to The Man From Snowy River was that
great.i thought it was too drawn out.plus,it was fairly heavy on the
romance angle,which isn't my cup of tea.Tom Burlinson returns as Jim
Craig,the title character in the first movie.Sigrid Thornton returns as
his love interest.Kurt Douglas played her father,Harrison,in the
original.Brian Denehey plays that role in this movie.this is not the
worst movie i have seen,but it wasn't as good as i'd hoped.still,just
like the first one,there is some very beautiful scenery,and a great
musical score.Burlinson and Thornton are both decent actors,at least in
this movie.Dennehy is also good.for me,Return to Snowy River is a 5/10.
