      Stephen Romei The Australian Mack Lindon's autobiographical prison drama Riseis one of the strangest films I've seen in a while, not always in a good way but not always in a bad way either. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 7, 2014 Full Review Jake Wilson Sydney Morning Herald This naive production is often uncomfortable viewing. Rated: 1/5 Nov 7, 2014 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com May not quite be the entertaining and inspirational film that it aspires to be, but it does tell an involving and important story. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 21, 2020 Full Review John Noonan FILMINK (Australia) Based on Lindon's own experiences of life inside after a false rape allegation, Rise is a passionate but misguided cry that miscarriages of justice of this kind can happen. Mar 19, 2015 Full Review Tom Clift Concrete Playground Plays into false myths about sexual assault. Rated: 1/5 Nov 17, 2014 Full Review Jim Schembri 3AW Rugged, real-life story from writer/director Mack Lindon about his time in prison over a false rape charge. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 9, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

      Dale Vigil It's seems like another predator trying to justify his behavior. Remember -we all are a composite of good , bad., flawed etc. We must judge ourselves, not by intentions but by acts and own the consequences. We don't even get the girls side of the story. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie from beginning to end. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Very good Australian movie, Martin Sacks is a standout playing Jimmy Cove. 🙂 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting prison movie due to the relationship between 2 inmates, the stereotypical weak and strong character. The lack of gratuitous violence is a real plus for this genre, and the ending makes it a winner. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member RISE is my own story of losing my nursing career from a false allegation and spending over 500 days in maximum security jail only to be acquitted and not compensated for the massive loss. RISE is now been distributed by SONY across the globe, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, South Korea & Australia & New Zealand by Pinnacle Films. more recently subtitled in Spanish. I must have done something right! The audience do not agree with the so called 'top critics' on RT. So in my defence and democracy - Jake Wilson, John Noonan & Tom Clift please answer my questions either here or face to face when our paths cross... ...Jake...have you ever made a movie? ...John...please explain 'misguided cry'...& ...Tom...it's not a myth, it happened to me, did you even watch the movie? I never even went to film school & in the words of Rob Sitch writer/director/producer according to the SBS "the 2 hardest things a human being can do is go to jail for something you didn't do & make a movie, Mack's done both" God bless you 3 stooges and see you soon for your answers (-: RISE is my own story of losing my nursing career from a false allegation and spending over 500 days in maximum security jail only to be acquitted and given no compensation. I turned my story into a full length feature film having never gone to film school and used barely no creative licence so I chuckle when I read the so called 'top critics' on rotten tomatoes bag it out with no constructive criticism. SONY is now distributing my movie across the globe, United States, Canada, United Kingdom and South Korea & recently subtitled in Spanish. I must have done something right. So in my defence I would like an answer from the following 'critics'... ...Jake Wilson...have you ever made a film? ...John Noonan...please explain 'misguided cry'...& ...Tom Clift...this is not a myth...it happened to me...did you even watch RISE? Australia's 'tall poppy' syndrome has to crumble, starting with the so called 'critics'. My critics are the audience and they don't reflect the crap you write. So keyboard warriors when our paths cross please answer my questions if you haven't the courage to respond here, Any wonder why so many of us move to countries where they encourage and build up not tear down and destroy. God bless you 3 stooges, you can't hide forever (-: Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Very well acted, gives the right balance of action , thought provoking dialogue and very well directed.
