This movie has a heart, but isn't soppy. It's also hilarious. There is violence. It isn't gratuitous, but it is jarring (like violence ought to be).

What a great movie. The kid was great in Deadpool2 as well.

Slow at first, but very sweet and the pay off is so worth it. I thought I wouldn't be able to get over the New Zealand accents, but once I got into it Hick/Hec didn't bother me.

Loved it! Had to pause at the scene where Ricky is talking over to the Child Welfare woman over the ravine because I was laughing so much!

Her: I'm relentless. I'm like the Terminator
Him: I'm more like Terminator than you!
Her: I said it first - you're more like Sarah ...Read more

Quirky and fun, great acting in beautiful vistas. Thought and heart-provoking, and I agree, majestical! One of my two favorites so far.

Taika Waititi never fails to make an enjoyable film.

A good, funny film with beautiful scenery and good acting. If there is one thing I didn't like was the "big" ending to the chase. I much preferred the "small" ending that happened later on.

I see it as a nod to the Mad Max films from NZ's neighbor to the west.

A great film by Taika Waititi, who's becoming very well known for his films. This one was a joy, and you never knew where it was going and where it would end up. It was surprising from beginning to end. Don't miss it -- it's a quirky treat!

Such a sweet & fun film. The cast is great, Sam Neill is one of my all time favorite actors, Rima Te Wiata (also seen in the great NZ horror film Housebound) is lovely and Julian Dennison was effectively lovable and hilarious. Taika Waititi is such an excellent director, I'm a big fan of ...Read more
