Quotes

Motorcycle Cop: Afternoon, sir. Do you know why I pulled you over?
Jon: Well, the Rego's all good, so I guess you're just revenue collecting, Officer. Or another probable cause is... Another probable cause is institutionalized racism, you know? Perhaps you just pulled him over because he's Maori.
[the cop lifts his visor to show he himself is Maori]

A feel good Thriller
4 November 2017 | by arunchedatharaSee all my reviews

I don't know how to describe the genre of this movie. It can be called a feel good movie, Thriller movie or comedy! Actually it has all the elements. Its a fun film and it has a realistic feel good treatment. But it's thrilling. "Pork pie" is not an edge of the seat thriller or crime thriller. It's a nice thriller. It keeps the viewer engaged.

Basically it is a road movie. Three people in a cute yellow mini cooper are traveling from one place of New Zealand to another place which is far away. But they are not friends and they didn't start the journey together. Also initially they have no specific mission. The movie just stats and then it get it's pace.

It has some thrilling chase sequences and lots of nice scenes. Almost every scene has something to entertain the viewers. Acting of every actor – the main and supporting cast -in the film was superb. That is very enjoyable to watch.

It is the remake of Kiwi classic film "good bye pork pie" which was directed by Geoff Murphy in 1981. The interesting fact is that, Pork Pie (2017) was directed by his son Matt Murphy. I watched this movie without any expectation. I just started watching and watched till the end in single stretch. It was a very refreshing experience for me. After a point I was really involved and their missions became mine too. That right 'mate'. PS: use subtitles because their accent is little difficult to understand sometimes
