New Zealand filmmaker Lee Tamahori (The Edge) directed this brutal but powerful story drawn from the culture of poverty and alienation enveloping contemporary Maori life. Rena Owen plays the beleaguered mother of two boys--one of whom is already in prison while the other contemplates membership in a gang--and a daughter whose potential is being smothered at home. Temuera Morrison gives an outstanding and sometimes shocking performance as the violent head of the household, more adept at keeping up his social stature within his community of friends than holding down a job. Once Were Warriors pulls no punches, literally and figuratively, but despite the rough going, Tamahori gives us a rare and important insight into a people digging down deep to find their pride. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

I originally had this film on a Video, but the DVD is much better quality. A film that really makes you understand how a lot of the Maori live these days. Quite violent in some places, but a gripping film all the same.

This is one of those films that has gained underground cult status across the world. Personally, I'm one of those fans. Why do I love this film? Well, I love it in-spite of its gratuitous and graphic portrayal of many social and human 'taboos'. Yes it's uncomfortable viewing at times, well, quite a lot of the time, but it is contextualised in the story of the family and of family tradition. And the acting is outstanding, truly. The actors make you start to believe what you are seeing. The film really tackles so many social, family and community issues, I just wouldn't know where to start. But be warned! Not for the squeamish or those who dislike violent scenes. But it does tell a story, and what a story. It will surely communicate with you at some level. Powerful film which I would recommend with previous provisos. If you found this review helpful then please take a moment to tick the YES box below. Thanks.

was told by a friend that this is a good movie so I bought it on his opinion of the film I watched the film from start to finish so it wasn't entirely a bad film I just felt that it really focused on the abuse of loved ones and that there are some really nasty things have happened and still happen to woman and I feel that the film was almost trying to make it ok for this to happen
