The bitter and slow moving plot brings you to a conclusion that's just too weird to be rewarding. Samuel L. Jackson gives a great and expert performance, but unfortunately it's not enough to make this film as great as it could've been.

Harry W (br) wrote: Considered by a 2014 New Zealand survey to be the greatest piece of New Zealand cinema ever produced, Once Were Warriors sounded like a great experience.It really was. Once Were Warriors was a thoroughly impressive film because of just how gritty it was in its nature and its cultural relevance. It is the second film about New Zealand culture that I have seen and the first to examine society for the Maori people. I never studied it all that much prior to seeing the film so everything I understand about it I learned from Once Were Warriors. The film taught me that the Maori are strong people, at it also depicted them in a westernized urban society. Once Were Warriors is ripe with a raw and fearless depiction of the people and the underbelly of New Zealand society that many of them are forced to live in. It shows everything from domestic violence to alcohol abuse without hiding anything, and in that sense it is a brutal experience. It is the kind of brutal experience that any cinema aficionado needs to see because it works both as a raw depiction of alcohol addiction, domestic violence and a broken family all against the backdrop of Maori culture. This makes the film interesting both on a dramatic level and on a cultural one, amalgamating educational elements from both into turning Once Were Warriors into a complex learning experience and entertaining piece of cinema.Once Were Warriors is great because of the complex characters. The story itself is a simple one which makes it easy to keep up with whilst it gets more complicated in the sense that the characters all have their own level of depth to them. The screenplay in the film is packed to the brim with strong dialogue full of natural New Zealand language with an organic level of humour lying beneath it to give the film some jolts of laughter along the way. But more importantly it characterizes the many characters of the film in complex ways. It is simple enough to keep up with yet complex enough to be interesting, and there are many lines in the film which are strongly memorable, such as Beth Heke's final speech where she says "Our people once were warriors". The dialogue in the film is brilliant, the characters are great and the exploration of Maori culture is incredibly insightful.The film is an important examination of how culture is relevant to us as human beings, how it defines us and how our identities lie partially with it. For protagonist Beth, it is what gives her the strength to keep going the entire time, so the message of the film is beautiful if viewers can see it underneath all the visual brutality. Once Were Warriors is a film which makes viewers feel all kinds of things. Shock, sympathy, sadness. But above all, it gives them entertainment and provokes thought which is precisely why cinema exists. The film is brilliantly written and given top notch direction by Lee Tamahori. I was surprised to see that he was the director of the film because it was so good, and considering that he later went to Hollywood and became the sellout who directed the dreadful adaptation of the James Patterson novel Along Came a Spider as well as the overblown box office bomb xXx: State of the Union. It is almost prescient because the film depicts people moving away from their culture and losing identity in the process which is precisely what happened to Lee Tamahori after Once Were Warriors. But it is nevertheless clear that his direction on this film is magnificent. He gives the film a strong atmosphere which hits really hard and never looks back, and the visual style is striking thanks to all the great scenery and production design being captured with well-placed cinematography. The colour palette of the film is also very grim which casts a shadow of darkness over the story very well but still remains bright enough so that the visual quality of the film is nothing but clear. It is brilliant, and it plays out against the backdrop of a strong soundtrack and well-timed sound effects which are edited into the audio plane well. And as well as being a spectacle and thought provoker, Once Were Warriors is a brilliantly acted film ripe with an exceptional cast.Rena Owen is a perfect lead as Beth Heke. She is brilliant because the entire time in the film she makes it clear that she is a strong woman, and she maintains the perfect level of dramatic ferocity as a manner of conveying that. Her physical involvement in the part makes her emotions clear, and the nature of her line delivery is just another element to reveal it. She is just immaculate in the lead because her performance is rich with tenacity over the character and understanding of who she really is which gives her the perfect edge. She says every single line with an organic understanding of why it is necessary to the part and her dedication to the cultural relevance of the film is thoroughly impressive. She develops well over the course of the story which you can tell through the growing strength of the dramatic chemistry she shares with the other cast members as well as something as simple as her facial expressions. Rena Owen is able to depict a lot about her character in the most subtle of ways and finds the right amount of subtlety to prevent herself from becoming overly melodramatic in the part. Rena Owen finds the perfect level of drama in her part, and her dedication to the role is just unforgettable.Temura Morrison is also incredible. The thing which he does really well is conveying the level of inner torment he faces as a slave to his alcoholism and his emotions, and he does it really well. He conveys the perfect level of aggression in the part by being physically intimidating both to the other characters and to the audience while remaining consistently unpredictable. There is no telling what comes next with Temura Morrison in the role of Jake "the Muss" Heke because he is such a strong character in terms of exterior power and confidence yet inside he is actually a slave to his pride and his aggression which makes him a weak man at heart. The character itself is thoroughly complicated, and Temura Morrison deals with the part thoroughly perfectly. His performance is strikingly intense and thoroughly brutal which makes him a fearful presence whenever he is on screen, and his chemistry withg Rena Owen is just incredible. The relationship they share is one of the most key elements of the film, and the way it develops over the course of the story is thoroughly entertaining. Temura Morrison is another perfect casting decision in Once Were Warriors, and he makes the brutal nature of the story into a terrifying reality.Mamaengaroa Kerr-Bell also stands out in Once Were Warriors. She makes Grace Heke an easily sympathetic character by expressing the distressing nature of having to tolerate the destructive world around inflicting a damaging lifestyle on her. She remains consistent throughout all the material with natural dramatic talent and a lack of fear about what kind of material she can take on. She goes through it all very well with youthful charisma and strong emotional expression. She delivers all of her lines easily and remains engaged with the character and the material very well, so she is an exceptional addition to the cast.So due to being emotionally challenging, thought provoking and rich in culture as well as stylish and acted with finesse. Once Were Warriors really does make a case of being the finest New Zealand film ever made.

Beth H (br) wrote: This movie absolutely kills me. From Mink Stole screaming crazy stuff like the children are having sex and her husband is trying to kill her to being forced to escape to a town filled with derelicts and criminals...this movie never stops with the satire, hilarity and complete grossness.Coming across a perverted cop wearing women's lingerie while on the run, he directs them to Mortsville which consists of a shanty town filled with undesirables. Mortsville is run by Edith Massey (the lover of eggs from Pink Flamingos) who delights in humiliating her loyal subjects and shoving her dominating ways in their faces. Her gay soldiers are particularly hilarious in their attempts to satiate their queen. The movie culminates in some typical gory, but beyond funny scenes when the lesbians unite to confront the queen.If you love John Waters and have never seen this, get on it ASAP.

La obra de corte freudiano, presenta muchos simbolismos pesados, insinuaciones y exceso de dilogo, que se compensan con unas actuaciones de primer orden y una direccin experta de Joseph L. Mankiewicz.

Cody B (nl) wrote: This movie offers some laugh out loud moments but that's about it. The story is meh at best. The acting is sub par in my opinion. The movie has its moments wear you can't help but to laugh and that is the only reason this movie got 2.5 stars. It lacks that hilarious factor or something that ties the adult humor with the story. It's a freaky Friday clone with men on the opposite side of the spectrum past that nothing. This has the potential to be a fantastic movie. It lacked in every way other then some adult humor mixed In. Ryan was decent in it tho
