Product Description

This much-anticipated sequel to 'Once Were Warriors', New Zealand's most successful film to date, is similarly based around the country's gang culture. Jake the Muss has turned his back on his family, and is now living his life drinking and getting up to his old tricks in McClutchy's bar. But when he discovers that his eldest son has been killed in a gang fight, he vows to get his act together and struggles to save his other son from suffering a similar fate.

This is a great film, it takes the story of the first film (Once Were Warriors) and expands on the main character (Jake the Muss)
The first film was an all time classic (if you haven't seen it then why not?) and this film is a welcome addition, I cannot wait to see if the story will continue with more films.
I will not go into the story as it will spoil it but if you are a fan of hard hitting, gritty films then this will knock your socks off! I would recommend getting both films as it is well worth seeing them in the correct order. The acting is first class and the setting is exactly how you would imagine life in the ghettos of New Zealand. Buy this film, you will not be disappointed.

Having seen 'Once Were Warriors' when it was first released in New Zealand, I didn't think that this would be able to carry through on the raw emotion portrayed in the first movie. I was wrong. This had a good gritty storyline which shows Jake Heke (Temuera Morrison) realising that his life had to change. A lot of people would have dismissed this as being over acted - New Zealand (unfortunately) does have violent gang activity, you only have to venture into the south Auckland area to realise that this is really what it can be like. A great movie. If you have seen 'Once Were Warriors' don't miss this.

Follow up to the (much) earlier "Once Were Warriors", which left the Heke family in ruins following the abuse and suicide of Jake and Beth's daughter. Jake and Beth have separated and the story in this film picks up Jake's stumbling and semi articulate attempts for some sort of redemption as he tries to engage with his estranged children to save his middle son Boogie from following in his eldest son Nig's gangland footsteps. Just as with the books it is interesting to see Alan Duff's (author of the books) character and plot developments but the urgency and power of the first instalment is not matched by the "tying up loose ends" feel to the second. The film strays from the book in completely over dramatizing the gang plot, going all Hollywood with bangs and chases - a big departure from the book. I don't have a problem with that in theory - they are different media - but this does go very much against the day to day feel of the source material. There is continual tension between the 2D Hollywood thrills and spills, and the grittier elements. The director's heart seems to be in the latter, given the deeply open ending, but it seems like he felt compelled to include the former to appeal to a broader audience. 4 stars because I like the books and first film and am interested in NZ/Aus films, especially those from an indigenous perspective - but probably 3 stars for someone without those interests.

Temuera Morrison is again a world class actor. The more you see of this man, the more you are in awe of his work.
Like the original "Once Were Warriors", this movie leads you into a different part of the normal living conditions and lifestyles that you can find in every country in the world.
Nothing shorld be classified as normal, for we all look upon things differently. So for a lot of peoples, this lifestyle is normal, but a lot of us cannot cope with things that are outside of our regular circle...This is one of those movies.
Be prepaired to see life in the raw, and for a trip that educate you and will leave you breathless.....

This is the sequel to "Once were warriors" and if you've seen that then you have to see this. It leaves you willing on Jake to do the right thing, to put right the wrongs he had done by his family. This is a must see film if only to realise the plight of the Maori's in New Zealand, down trodden like the Aboriginals in Australia.

The Second Installment To First Flim ( Once Were Warrior's ).How Do The Two Flims Compare ? The First Flim Was On Full Throttle, A Master Piece With Out A Doubt. As For( What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted )I Enjoyed It Because Most Of The Actors Were In The First Flim. Jake Is Trying To Put Things Right In This Flim. Did Not Have The Throttle Of The First Flim ,But I Still Recommend You Buy This Flim .

Having been years since seeing once were warriors and quite enjoying it I thought I would purchase both films at once. Never heard of this one and did fill the sequel label easily. Not brilliant but worth one watch
