She navigates her way through the unruly and wild world of the gold rush in 1860's New Zealand, finding unlikely friendship amongst the hustlers, whores, Maori Warriors and Chinese Miners. But in the end, she must face the man who took the boy - and become the woman she never thought she'd be. Written by Anonymous

I wanted to like this film :(
18 August 2019 | by jtmorgan-24664See all my reviews

As an enormous fan of Westerns and a New Zealander, I was so excited to watch this film - having now seen it I'm left with nothing but disappointment. I'll run you through a quick pros and cons list

Pros

  • Beautiful scenery
  • Interesting and under-explored setting


Cons
  • Predictable plot
  • Idiotic characters
  • Several poor actors
  • Weak third act
  • Little to no character development in anybody other than the protagonist.


This film feels like it's building to something that never comes. I had enormous hopes and probably a pretty large bias towards the film from the beginning, but it still failed to even entertain me. 4 stars
