This film is a alternative of the pixar film UP, how it should of been between the old man, and the boy ha so this is where Sam Neill got to, from hunting dinosaurs.. to now hunting wild pigs while on the run in the bush with a kid that calls him uncle.. This film takes you on a crazy, funny, wtf adventure, you also get a good sound track on the way, and you'll meet some weird characters on the way like Psycho Sam... yes that's what he calls himself..

Great movie, deeply enjoyed by me, strongly recommend it. But even though it's an awesome fucking movie, it's nowhere as good as any of Waititi's other movies.

Great watch, would watch again, and can recommend.

WARNING: Sad dog scene.

Julian Dennison ("Deadpool 2") and Sam Neill ("Jurassic Park") give an amazing performance as grumpy unlikeable pair of guys purposely lost in the wilderness.

For an "foster kid" trope, this movie really has it all. More

New Zealand has a long history of quirky movies, and _Hunt for the Wilderpeople_ is a great addition to the fold. Written and directed by Taika Waititi, this 2016 film stars Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. It was a big hit More

**He finally found his place, and now it's in jeopardy!**

The fourth feature film for the Kiwi director Taika Waititi. I loved all his films except the previous one, despite it was a famous title that the world loved, I'm not. So according to me this is a great comeback after a cheap vampire mock More
