Great Film - A Real Surprise
14 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a fantastic film, reminding me of my little brother thinking he himself was Batman as a child. A truly wonderful film set when I myself was a child which made it even more entertaining taking me back to my own childhood. The setting of New Zealand was magnificent .Oscar, who played Andy was so convincing that it brought tears to my eyes. This is an inspirational story to thousands of other children, who, like Andy and his friend are bullied. This was a great story with so much content packed into such a short time you actually felt you had just watched a feature length film. I come from England and didn't know New Zealand had such terrific talent, apart from the Lord of the Rings of course.
