I saw this movie last night, and was very very impressed with the quality of the shots, the genuine actors, and the awesome writing of the film. Such an authentic combination of humor, drama, family ties, history, and culture, it made this movie truly worth watching. It's not often that you get a "nz" film that has you glued to the story the whole way through, so Number 2 stood out because it managed to do that. And even though I recognised some actors from NZ TV show's, they were enough in character in this film to let me see them as their new characters.
A genuine story, with a great local cast. it exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this movie to anyone, and I look forward to seeing what other great work Toa Fraser brings to us in the future!
