    What an absolutely delightful and beautiful film. The opening scenes with Bella are wonderful and Ricky and Hec go so well together. It grows on you, and basically turns out to have pretty much everything. Great action sequences, musical cuts that are groovin, fantastic dogs, joke after joke that lands and cinematography that absolutely captures the beauty of New Zealand. Easily up there among the best of the year for me.

    I cannot get over that line. It's so fucking good.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Since I seriously started getting into movies somewhere around 6 years ago this has been my most anticipated movie ever. The only way to describe how fantastic it is, is to simply say that it not only lived up to my expectations but it rocked them and surpassed them and waved hello the second go around said expectations.

    It would be impossible to get around to everything that is perfect here so I'll just mention a couple of standout things…
