Excellent
19 May 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Very good movie. I really had fun watching it and just can't wait for the DVD to see it again!! The story seems a bit complicated at first, with several characters introduced at once and quite a lot of twists and turns, and you don't really see where it's leading to, which is a bit unusual for this type of movie. But you shouldn't let it put you off. The rest of the movie is a very fun ride, full of twists and surprises.

I really don't believe you have to come from New Zealand to enjoy it, like some previous comments seemed to say.. Looking forward to seeing what Greg Page will do next!
