Gorgeously filmed, charmingly acted, and while the (sometimes shaky) balance between drama and absurdity leans towards comedy it still possesses affecting substance on both sides of the fulcrum.

Starts strong, doesn't give any clues about the reasons of its awkwardness and creates a universe of its own with a unique sense of humor. But especially towards the end, it cannot achieve maintaining its eccentricity promise as it repeats the scheme of "mantic rebellion movies" like Badlands or Pierrot Le For where a romantic uprising fails in front of a huge central power such as state and/or society. But overall a quiet fun watch.

'Hunt For The Wilderpeople' is funny, odd and very well made. A boy and his foster father become wanted in a manhunt after they get stranded in the New Zealand wilderness. Written and directed by Taika Waititi, the writing and directing is very good. The screenplay was based on the book "Wild Pork and Watercress" by Barry Crump. Ricky Baker I thought was hilarious and "Uncle" Hector was very well played by Sam Neill. The humor in this film is great, I thought it was really funny.

I love analyzing movies. I also love having fun watching movies. Hunt for the Wilderpeople was absolutely one of those experiences for me. I found myself with a grin for most of the film. From Taika Waititi's direction (that at times reminded me of an early Wes Anderson) to the stoic, deadpan performance from Sam Neill (Hec) and the exuberant bombastic one from Julian Dennison (Ricky), I couldn't stop smiling.

Wonderful adventure film goes more or less where you expect from the plot synopsis, but transcends its ODD COUPLE roots through its gorgeous New Zealand scenery, an at times delightfully demented, fairy-tale sense of humour, and pitch-perfect performances from Neill and Dennison. Wiata also proves a dab-hand at dead-pan as Neill's wife. Could have arguably done without the 'manhunt' subplot and instead made it a purely 'back-to-basics' fable, but that's just a minor quibble!

Like many others have said, it's very refreshing to see a movie that's actually pleasant and fun without getting obnoxious. For me, this had a strong Wes-Anderson-but-less-annoying feel. It's a tightrope walk between funny, cheesy and heartfelt, and for most of the movie it goes over impressively well. However, in the last 15-20 minutes I felt like the movie lost its precarious balance and drifted into full standard-issue-indie-movie mode. Regardless, a very worthwhile watch.

Waititi has this thing going for him like Wes Anderson where his characters feel like characters, but are put into human situations. The somber scenes in the film just aren't as effective and feel out of place because of that. This is still a fun adventure film nevertheless with some laughs here or there.

Taika Waititi finds a nice balance of comic absurdity and heart-tugging sentiment in HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE, a movie that advances the director's case for the title of the Kiwi Wes Anderson. The sublime drollery is unceremoniously elbowed out of the way by cartoony mayhem at times; however, Waititi's world is too wide, too mad, and too weird not to accommodate any misfit.
