Powerful, wrenching story of the vile, brutish drunk Jake Heke whose rage and indifference threaten to destroy his family. There aren't many characters on film as scary as he and probably even fewer actors who could pull it off.

One of the hardest films you'll ever watch. It pulls no punches giving you a real look at a true broken family. However it doesn't overwhelm you with complete negativity allowing the viewer to hope the characters can improve their lives. Incredible acting from the two leads, although a minor few of the supporting cast leave a bit to be desired.

Harrowing story of domestic violence and hopelessness. Simply great. The lead actress in particular reminds me of Jeanne Moreau

Miserable piece of cinema but deservedly so - it has a very hopeless tone but never seems to tackle the wider problems which affect our characters. Morrison and Owen hold the film up - their performances are brilliant, and Tamahori's direction is rather pedestrian - this is all about the characters, although sometimes the scope widens a little and the class aspect of the film is really interesting but underdeveloped. The film also drops a lot of plots in the first act which resolve messily.

An extraordinary and very brutal film depicting very sensitive topics. Very well done and highly recommended.

A movie about a bunch of poor morons that have no direction in life and generally don't care about anything. The monologue at the end was laughable and unneeded. "My people once were warriors and you were a slave!" I lol'd. Yeah, some scenes are powerful but it's so overdone that after 30 minutes, you get it. I didn't need 100 minutes of a) guy getting drunk, b) guy beating the shit out of wife, c) guy yelling "you need to learn your place!" at wife and d) tragedy! over and over and over

A very well done movie if you're in the mood to be depressed and cringe a lot. But it's the kind of movie I personally only want to watch once. The warriors aspect is really cool.

A Movie about real strength...power ist not the defintion of what you can destroy with your fists... in that case you´ll see that power comes from the inside and means how long can I endure this physical and even more the emotional suffering! This Movie is no fiction...it´s reality...

I like this. The dynamics of a rough-and-tough family are expertly analysed and the gritty and documentary-esque nature of the content is powerful but the horrible acting and a very hit-and-miss script effect it a little bit.
