Great watch, would watch again...

Great watch, would watch again, and can recommend. WARNING: Sad dog scene. Julian Dennison ("Deadpool 2") and Sam Neill ("Jurassic Park") give an amazing performance as grumpy unlikeable pair of guys purposely lost in the wilderness. For an "foster kid" trope, this movie really has it all. I don't appreciate it's attempt to mimic "Up!" and that did sour my opinion a bit. It starts, then waxes and wanes between drama and comedy. You'll laugh, you'll cry, there is family love, romantic love, plenty of action, and more laughs.

Written and directed by Taika Waititi, this 2016 film stars Sam Neill and Julian Dennison.

**He finally found his place, and now it's in jeopardy!** The fourth feature film for the Kiwi director Taika Waititi. I loved all his films except the previous one, despite it was a famous title that the world loved, I'm not. So according to me this is a great comeback after a cheap vampire mockumentary. I was very confident that this would take up the New Zealand's the Oscars slot and then disappointed to find it was not in the initial list released by the Academy. Anyway, it does not need a tag like that, it is really an awesome film for everyone, though the theme has some adult contents in an indirect manner and violence like killing the wild animals. That means still it can be watched by kids with their parents' consent. Watching it takes you to the location live, so you don't want to end your vacation in the beautiful New Zealand wilderness...
