Robert Sarkies has a big reputation in the New Zealand film industry, but interestingly enough, he’s only made 3 features in 13 years, which says a lot about how hard it is to make films here, as renowned overseas directors tend to put out features every 2-3 years. I remember really enjoying ‘Scarfies’, and ‘Out Of The Blue’ was awesome, so I was excited to see his third feature film on the big screen.
“When Nige finds himself in a spot of bother after a series of unfortunate incidents, he is forced to ask Deano for help. The problem is Deano is not really the kind of guy you should turn to in a crisis.”
This film pretty much sums up what's generally wrong with NZ feature films, as it had weakly written characters, haphazard story development, bleak humour, and overall it was just trying too hard to be cool. Take the worst parts of 'Eagle vs Shark', mix with 'Predicament', and you'll get an idea of how this film has been delivered. It had one really good laugh I'll give it that, but only that.
