Maori Epic
12 October 2014 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

"Stars, hide your fires" exhorts Macbeth "let not light see my black and deep desires." Similarly, a vicious and powerful band of thugs destroys a village, murders its people, and counts on escaping notice and justice for their actions. These formidable Maori warriors from long ago slip into the forest with confidence that their heinous deeds will go unpunished. They believe deeply that such violence feeds their glory. They did not concern themselves that Hongi, a young warrior from the village they destroyed and burned, slipped away with them. They did not much hesitate to enter the forbidden dead lands where a legendary fighter is rumored to rule and reside. Into this fearsome land of bones they go, pursued by the solitary Hongi and soon a new menace that none of them imagined.
