    Two rebels. One million hectares of untamed wilderness. The hunt is on.

    The story of misfit kid Ricky and his grumpy foster uncle Hec. The unlikely duo evade child services and the law by going bush...

    Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Zealand's answer to The Castle Aussie audiences will love the blend of deadpan Kiwi humour, quirky characters and slapstick action. A zany family comedy for the mischievous kid in all of us; let’s hope Taika Waititi brings similar wit and verve to the next Thor movie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hunt for the Wilderpeople I saw a snippet of this film and bought it immediately, I felt it was a must see and It was great. Although sad at times it was quite funny at others, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, is a story set In remote New Zealand. A wonderful cast brings the story to life and engages the viewing audience from the very beginning. The scenery is amazing, do yourself a favour when you are looking for some light family entertainment and watch this film.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Random & Funny The story starts off slow but eventually has some bouncing in my seat funny moments. Taika Waititi has knack for incorporating humour into his storytelling.
