Excellent Movie
29 December 2005 | by cruzah16See all my reviews

Wow! I've only watched the movie twice but now that I have the DVD I'm sure I'll be watching it more often. I haven't seen a movie that best represented Hawaii until this one came out. It really makes me very proud of my Heritage and my Culture. Very moving and it instills the true meaning of Aloha from a locals point of view. It also shows us (the younger generation) how much more there really is to our culture rather than making the money. Of course we need to make the money especially living in Hawaii, but not to lose the respect for others and ourselves. Not a lot of us live with patience or true aloha, with the life style we grow up with now days it's hard...influences come from the wrong things and sometimes just being good ain't worth it no more. It's hard and most people do what it takes to get by while others forget how it felt to be struggling before they had anything. But not everybody is like that...there's still some out there that live the aloha spirit to the heart every single day. I pray that one day we can all be like that...but till then the movie will continue to be a remembrance of the aloha spirit. Job well done...Aloha...Cruzah16
