Violence: Rife with violence. Fist fights, bloody, bottle broken over a guy's head.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Surfing accidents: severed veins and a large puncture wound near carotid artery. But if you surf, you know these things happen. No biggie.

Loses focus after 30 minutes. You get 30 minutes on the backdrop of surf gangs in Oz and then it becomes a documentary focusing solely on Koby Abberton and his brother Jai and their legal troubles. The film did a lousy job of explaining what happened and after Googling to find out more details, it's easy to see why. Produced by the Abberton family, I'm sure they don't want us to know that both brothers pled guilty because they never mention it. A more compelling film would've been the surfing history of Oz as some of it is pretty bizarre, or a documentary on surf gangs which also exist in other places. Hawaii's Wolf Pak, for example, is infamous. But a contrast and comparison would have made for a good film as Bra Boys come across as rebel rousers beating the crap out of other gangs for no reason and clashing with police, while the Wolf Pak was instituted to keep tourists in check while police looked the other way.
