Probably the best film ever to come out of NZ
21 February 2017 | by andy-ross11See all my reviews

Goodbye Pork Pie, the original movie was (and is) such an iconic film. It may have been made in the late 70's/early 80's, but it's one of those films which is a timeless classic. Normally, you leave such films as they are and don't even think about remaking them. For me, films like 'The Italian Job' are so iconic and making a new version just doesn't seem right.

However, sometimes against the odds, the new film is even better than the original.

The director of the new Pork Pie movie, is the son of the Director of the original Pork Pie, so having that important family connection meant that they wanted to do a good job and do justice to the original film.

They also had a bigger budget, and boy did they do a great job.

The film is funny, gripping, and entertaining.

The casting is spot on, the acting is superb and the story-line is perfect.

This film needs a worldwide release! You don't need to be a Kiwi to understand the humour, it's incredibly well written, acted & very funny.

I hope it's a HUGE success!
