Hunt for the Wilderpeople


Three stars

Sincere if ambling children’s adventure movie.  The episodic structure of the film makes for good trailer cutting but robs momentum and ultimately payoff.  There’s a bit of forced Wes Andersony whimsy but the lead kid is pretty awesome.  Good characters.  Decent silly movie.
