"The film is so enjoyable in its absurdity that it’s near impossible to fault...this is a film that refused to be pinned down by a single genre, and is simultaneously moving, hilarious, and gripping as it ups the stakes constantly, to an epic and explosive end”. - Access Reel


“A sleek, kinetic and eye-catching retooling of the 1981 film”, with a story “cleverly updated by writer-director Matt Murphy” Variety

"More fun than a barrel of monkeys” Sydney Morning Herald

“Matt Murphy is almost as reckless as the characters in his wonderfully raucous, trans-Tasman road movie. Not only is the film he chose for his directorial debut a remake of a bona fide Kiwi classic, but the original version was helmed by his father, Geoff. Talk about setting yourself up for a critical caning. Murphy Jr, however, has turned what appeared to be an act of career suicide into a creative triumph.”Daily Telegraph
