great job!
20 September 2011 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

At last, a really decent movie. This is the best movie I have seen for ages. It is a very entertaining, thoughtful, funny, well acted movie with a great story, backed by a superb soundtrack, created by a few dedicated people on a low budget but with with a love and passion for their project. That this movie was created in the heart of Christchurch before the devastating earthquakes, leaves it as a record of part of central city life before everything changed. The movie takes you on a journey where at times you don't know where you are going, and in the end you won't be disappointed. It is the sort of movie that you will want to see again, and to get a copy of the soundtrack. Well done to the crew and cast of "The Holy Roller".
