Vachan’s review published on Letterboxd:
"I didn't choose the skux life, the skux life chose me"
Story of Survival and Adventure shown in the backdrop of New Zealand's vast outskirts of Bushy Grasslands..
Atmosphere of the whole film is Beautiful, just like The Lord of the Rings, The beauty of New Zealand never ceases to amaze me..
Cinematography and Editing is decent,
Screenplay is great, funny one-liners and pop culture references were admirable..
But the icing on the cake was Julian Dennison, his performance in this film was one of the best child performances I've ever seen, he was funny and serious at the right times..
Sam Neill gave arguably his best performance since Jurassic Park, its good to see a actor's career coming towards a revival..
One weakness is that, I don't think I'll be watching this film anytime soon, its forgetful..
Overall, a definite recommend for those who enjoy adventure and comedy films,
My 3rd favourite of 2016
