Different title for a completely different movie
24 May 2004 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I agree about the comments made that this movie was a major disappointment - but perhaps only cause its the sequel to Once were warriors. OWW conveyed real heart felt emotion with many excellent scenes, this broken hearted sequel on the other hand went in a completely different direction - more to the style of a typical mediocer action flick. No where near as good as the first but not a bad movie on its own.

PLOT IRREGULARITIES: Others have commented on this and its true - Sonny is no where in OWW, which on its own can be over looked. BUT in OWW there's a scene where Beth is talking about how Jake was "bosting about his baby boy" (refering to Nig) as if Nig was there first born child - but then all of a sudden Sonny appears on the scene. Sounds very much like a case of inventing characters just to make the sequel a bit interesting. Whether they achieved that or not is debatable.
