Typical New Zealand film
12 May 2018 | by h-kitchenerSee all my reviews

We got through 3 episodes and into the fourth when the seemingly now-typical aberrant behavior of two boys came on full display. This in-your-face nonsense apparently appeals to film makers but only causes normal viewers to turn it off quickly and delete from the wish list(amazon). I wonder, does New Zealand have a REAL film industry anymore?
