Powerful Drama And One Of New Zealand's Best

A gut punch of a film. One of the best dramas and brutally honest. This film is sadly just as relevant now as it was then. The acting and the script are amazing - this film will stay with you for a long time. Beautiful. 9 stars out of 10

In case you're interested in more underrated masterpieces, here's some of my favorites:

Real story about South Auckland New Zealand 90s

This was a great film. A film that represented a strong and realistic history of South Auckland New Zealand through the 90s. As a child myself in this time and brought up in this life, it was great to show a strong message to all female and male. That you don't have to stand for abuse and violence, that you can avoid these bad things happening in your life through some changes.

Once Were Warriors puts the James Cameron's Pure New Zealand into perspective

Once Were Warriors remains etched in any viewer's mind, and after watching this powerful movie, it kind of makes you look askance at the James Cameron Pure New Zealand/Lord of the Rings scenery into perspective big time and then some.

Yes, the movie is filled with violence (although I think more people get killed in LOTR and the James Cameron movie Aliens) but there's much meaning illuminated from Once Were Warriors. It's a movie for the ages.
