A great kids fun movie
26 September 2012 | by (Nelson NZ) – See all my reviews

Kiwi Flyer is a great little kids movie centered around the iconic Collingwood St Trolley Derby that has been running off and on since the early 60's. The movie is a lot of good clean fun and follows 12 year old Ben's attempts to win the Derby... he has to contend with a devious Aussie used car dealer who is determined that his family will win at any cost.... so don't expect this movie to be a big seller over the ditch in Australia but Kiwi's will love it ( we love anything that beats Australia ! ) It is a fun filled , fast moving , clean movie ( except for a few pooh jokes that the kids find very funny) that kids will love. It is fun and a return to old values that we see very little of these days and there are some good performances by the international and local cast.

Nelson shows up as one of the major players ... filmed in great sunny weather the city and it's surrounds really shine ... If you are planning a trip here see the movie or if not you will be after you see it. This is a must see for your kids ( 6 to 12 ) these holidays and the adults will enjoy this as well ... it is a fun, easy watch enjoy it as it is all about life and kids finding their way ... Fun fun fun .... 4 stars ....
