Great watch, would watch again, and can recommend.

WARNING: Sad dog scene.

Julian Dennison (“Deadpool 2”) and Sam Neill (“Jurassic Park”) give an amazing performance as grumpy unlikeable pair of guys purposely lost in the wilderness.

For an “foster kid” trope, this movie really has it all. I don’t appreciate it’s attempt to mimic “Up!” and that did sour my opinion a bit. It starts, then waxes and wanes between drama and comedy.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, there is family love, romantic love, plenty of action, and more laughs.

**He finally found his place, and now it’s in jeopardy!**

The fourth feature film for the Kiwi director Taika Waititi. I loved all his films except the previous one, despite it was a famous title that the world loved, I’m not. So according to me this is a great comeback after a cheap vampire mockumentary. I was very confident that this would take up the New Zealand’s the Oscars slot and then disappointed to find it was not in the initial list released by the Academy. Anyway, it does not need a tag like that, it is really an awesome film for everyone, though the theme has some adult contents in an indirect manner and violence like killing the wild animals. That means still it can be watched by kids with their parents’ consent.

Watching it takes you to the location live, so you don’t want to end your vacation in the beautiful New Zealand wilderness which feels like untouched. It was nothing like you have seen in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ that altered with the computer tricks. This is raw and beautiful like the Tasmanian jungle from ‘The Hunter’.

This is the story of an orphan boy named Ricky Baker, who is a troublesome. Finally a family from the remote place adopts him where with the initial hiccups, he started to get used to it. But after one of the members dies in his new family, the child service wants him back. This is where it all begins, because he finally found a place where he belongs, but they are trying to take it away from him. So he launches his protest that comes from a mistake which later becomes a national news. What’s going to happen to him and the others around him told in the remaining part.

> “Sometimes in life it seems like there’s no way out. Like a sheep trapped in a maze designed by wolves.”

Seems Ricky is obsessed with the films. He always talks about them and compares his actual state of condition to the different films he had seen and admired. Especially about the gangsters, I think that’s why he became so rebellious, apart from his struggles in the orphanage. This film was based on the book called ‘Wild Pork and Watercress’ and I praise the author for creating a character like Ricky. As usual the screenplay by Taika Waititi was amazing. Not without the support from his crew and especially the actors like who played Ricky. So was the Sam Neill in an important role.

First of all it is a fun film, despite whatever they have shown in this like about the feud between the child service and the kid. The film kind of looks like Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ without his signature. Except the initiation, what follows is quite aimless plot. So, not easy to predict the scenes, but somewhat we come to know the ending. It has to conclude either way, like happy or sad ending, or maybe both. But the overall film keeps us in the guessing mode, providing some laughs and thorough good entertainment.

It’s really an appealing title and so the equally satisfying film. Especially if you like wild and green landscape, you should not miss it. The story was told in chapters which actually did not require, but those slices were helped to understand each section and its focus. I think it was a direct influence from the original source.

The director is now on a big leap, doing a superhero film in the Hollywood. The third ‘Thor’ film, that reunites him with Sam Neill for the second consecutive time. I’m waiting for that which is going to be a visual extravaganza. He has done great with smaller films till now, which are mostly the comedies, but what comes is his biggest challenge so far and if he does pull it off successfully, he would be another Kiwi director in the big league after Peter Jackson. Praying to happen that. In the meantime, I recommend you to check this one out.

See this film!
I saw this movie last night in Hokitika. There was a queue outside, which caused comment enough amongst the locals, as this never happens. The cinema was packed with an amazing demographic of people, for example, on one side of me were toddlers with their Mums, on the other a lone hunter-type and behind me a group of retired farmer ladies. I think this speaks volumes on the draw of this film. To put it simply, it ticks all the right boxes. Everyone in Aotearoa (NZ) will know these characters in some form or another; from the gruff old bushman, to the earthy mother figure and the chillaxed cop. It is that familiarity that makes it more engrossing and funny. But not just here, its mix of subtle bathos and pathos will make it universally appealing, of that I am certain. In short: Good on ya, Taika! ‘Marvellous’ film!

generally interesting but tonally inconsistent
This film follows an unfortunate orphan boy’s adventures with a cantankerous adopted dad. It’s a rather odd movie, in that the boy and the father and mother figures feel comic but quite real whereas the rest of the characters are broad and cartoonish. I found this a very distracting approach that prevented the movie from fully committing to either being a touching comedy drama or a wild burlesque.

The cast is good and there are a number of good scenes, but the movie isn’t nearly as effective as either of director Taia Waititi’s other boy-based movies, Boy, and Jojo Rabbit.

It’s not a bad movie, but I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way to watch it.
