| Great movie, really enjoyed the Mercenary
I really liked this movie and would recommend it to anyone. I particularly liked the photography and acting. It was very authentic, its less about Rugby and more about being true to your values. Toki Pilioko does a fine acting job in the lead role. The singing and cultural traditions displayed are interesting. Director,Sacha Wolff shows much insight into the the Wallis Island polynesian culture. There is a behind the scenes revealing look at professional sports and the realities experienced by new players. This film also touches on family conflicts and coming of age challenges. My congratulations to the director Sacha and the film crew and cast on a job well done. Special thanks to Netflix for picking up this film and adding it to their list of feature films.
