Audience Reviews for Summer City

Horrible film. It's hard to understand anything at all because of the accents, sound quality, and the story in general. I'm sure there's drama in there somewhere, but they needed to make it clearer.

A teen morality tale, much like the American films of the late fifties and early sixties, told Aussie style, that also happens to be the film debut of Mel Gibson. Interesting to catch a glimpse of life Down Under reflective of American surf culture. Released in 1977!
