Lee Tamahori's 1994 low budget New Zealand film Once Were Warriors was critically commended and praised for its uncompromising, potent examination of the sinister side of the Maori population. Due to its colossal universal sensation it was virtually predestined that the studio would demand a sequel. In this case, Once Were Warriors is far too b... read more

follow up to once were warriors - i like the way it carries on directly after the first one. Not AS good as the first - but a really decent view all the same.

This sequel to the New Zealand-set drama "Once Were Warriors" revisits alcoholic Maori man Jake Heke (Temuera Morrison) and his wife, Beth (Rena Owen), who have separated, largely due to his excessive drinking. When their older son, Nig (Julian Arahanga), is killed in a gang fight, his brother, Sonny (Clint Eruera), becomes determined to avenge his death. Attempting to change his life for the better, Jake tries to help Sonny avoid Nig's tragic fate.

" So... who the fuck was Sonny Heke? There was Beth, Jake, Grace, Boogie, Nig, Polly and Huata I think... But no mention of Sonny Heke ever. So... CONFUSED?! At least Jake the Muss is always a "lovable chap" and fun to watch."

“"We coulda bin good together, eh gil?"

Lee Tamahori's 1994 low budget New Zealand film Once Were Warriors was critically commended and praised for its uncompromising, potent examination of the sinister side of the Maori population. Due to its colossal universal sensation it was virtually predestined that the studio would demand a sequel. In this case, Once Were Warriors is far too brilliant and unbeatable; consequently nobody ever expected this sequel to surpass its forerunner. Films like Once Were Warriors are austerely one-off successes. Nevertheless, What Becomes of the Broken Hearted? stands on its own intrinsic worth as an outstanding movie that is different in its own unique way.

It has been five years since the events of the first movie. We resume the story of J” read more
