Romper Stomper is a 1992 Australian drama film written and directed by Geoffrey Wright. The film stars Russell Crowe, Daniel Pollock, Jacqueline McKenzie and Tony Lee. The film tells the story of the exploits and downfall of a neo-Nazi group in blue-collar suburban Melbourne. This was Daniel Pollock's last film appearance before his death on 13 April 1992.

The film was nominated for nine Australian Film Institute Awards. It won Best Achievement in Sound, Best Actor in a Lead Role and Best Original Music Score. David Stratton of SBS The Movie Show praised the acting style in the film but was appalled at the level of violence, and as a consequence refused to give it a rating while fellow Movie Show critic Margaret Pomeranz gave it five stars. Stratton also described the film in Variety as "A Clockwork Orange without the intellect". Wright was so upset by Stratton's rating that he later poured a glass of wine on Stratton during a chance meeting at the 1994 Venice Film Festival.
