The Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a movie that I have been anticipating for a long time. I have loved it ever since it was first shown in the US, and even though I hadn't seen it until just a few days ago, I'm already becoming more enthralled with it as the days go by.
The Wilderpeople is based on the true story of a pair of African American brothers who were adopted by white Americans and raised in New York City. They try to stay away from the problems that plague their communities, but one day, they are mistaken for a savage and nearly lynched. It's a scary thought, and one that will change the lives of both brothers forever.
When watching the movie, I couldn't help but be reminded of Dances with Wolves. This is the main reason why I got this movie as soon as possible, and I'm glad that I did. The Wilderpeople and its story are quite similar, and that's exactly what makes The Hunt for the Wilderpeople an enjoyable movie.
What really impressed me about the movie was how perfectly adapted it was to the live action format. The animation is pretty good, the script is engaging, and the performances are pretty good as well. However, the main reason why I'm so glad I saw this movie is because I never thought it could be done.
The film is essentially the story of two black brothers who try to hide out from the violence that plagues their community, but as a result, they risk everything. The world will burn and every man and his dog will know their place, but luckily, both of them managed to find their place in this world and they both made it.
The Hunt for the Wilderpeople does not disappoint in any aspect. From the characters to the story, everything is well done and executed. If you are someone who is looking for a movie that will make you appreciate what life is all about, then this is the perfect movie for you.
Some of the best parts of the film involve the acting. Most of the actors who are featured in the movie are pretty good, and if you're looking for good acting, then you definitely should watch this film. One of the best parts of the film was the rap from Idris Elba, who did a great job in portraying the character of Bush.
Overall, I really enjoyed the whole movie. The Jungle Book was fun and it was definitely worth watching, but this is definitely my favorite film of the year. In fact, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople ranks right after The Jungle Book on my list of top 5 movies of the year.
