Chloe Leeson’s review published on Letterboxd:
Taika Waititi fetches so much joy to the world with his films there needs to be more directors like him out there. Hunt for the Wilderpeople is just as funny, quirky and touching as every other film he’s made, like, genuinely laugh out loud funny. Julian Dennison as Ricky is an absolute riot, I need him in every teen adventure film made from this point on. Cast him in a Goonies remake. Never a dull moment in the films run-time and every joke landed perfectly.
