Huge disappointment
25 November 1999 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is one of the biggest movie disappointments that I have ever experienced. I knew, before I went to the cinema, that "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?" would be a very different film from the masterpiece "Once Were Warriors". What I didn't know though, was that they would take the characters from the first movie and put them into some sort of an action film. To be honest, this film is not very good. I hate to say that, but there was not a single powerful scene in this film whereas in "Once Were Warriors" there were so many powerful scenes that I could hardly breathe after I saw it the first time. "What Happens…" is sadly like any of the hundreds of the revenge films we've seen before. It adds nothing new to the concept except for maybe *some* depth. And why is the first half hour so episodic? The director/editor hardly stays with a scene for more than a minute, often less. That was really bad.

It's not all bad though, there are a few scenes which are actually rather funny and Temuera Morrison is absolutely exceptional. (4/10)
