I am so moved by emotional depth that words should not be used to describe/review or critique JUST WATCH AND ENJOY!!!
Humans spread disease like rats
This movie is worst than foreigners
look, i'm some latinx rando and i counted one historical inaccuracy, so i really wonder what Maori historians and/or linguists would make of this. having said that, it's a lovingly made action film with suspenseful choreographies heartily performed by lots of Big Guys and i would watch it again
good tribal warfare flick
