I finally saw this movie for the first time on a cable channel and again on another cable channel a couple of nights ago. I was not disappointed! The sfx were amazing. The actors were both funny and great! From a rating of 1 to 10, I give this movie a 9.5! And one more thing, for a PG-13 movie, there was too much profanity.
I recently saw the movie Once were Warriors about a year ago on the independent film channel. I remember a few years back (in 1994?) reading the reviews about the movie and the contents that was in the movie.
The movie was very good, dramatic. The use of camera movements i certain scenes was different. But the amount of adult language was heavy.
The acting between the two main characters and there children was very dramatic,too.
After watching this movie, I have learned a lot about the real life situations in the Moari community in New Zealand.
