Red Hill (2010)
Even though the actual story echoes works that many people will have seen before—a youthful city-boy police officer (Ryan Kwanten) relocates to the titular town and experiences a first day on the job that's more eventful (i.e. more blood-filled) than he was expecting—it's successfully tight and the love put into the production feels authentic, accompanied throughout by a no-frills musical score that does its job perfectly the majority of the time.
The most memorable player is the man with a score to settle (Tom E. Lewis), characteristically silent and looking as mean as all fuck.
