Kaye Mayol’s review published on Letterboxd:
can't decide whether or not i like the kid character-wise.
the actor is great. type casted and you cant hate it. on the look out for him to take on more roles, exercise versatility.
everyone knows i love Taika and the way he not only tells but also SELLS stories. but this isn't one of his better cameos. fact is this might even be the only lousy one, entirely. Hunt for the Wilderpeople doesn't really cut it for me out of all his works. i liked it, but i find i'm a tad bit conflicted about the dynamic especially on the boy's side. i don't think i'd appreciate it very much, had i been the uncle.
