Critic Reviews for Savage

  • The details of gang life are fascinating. The casting is superb: hundreds of rough-heads assembled from across New Zealand. These mean-looking buggers provide a terrifying backdrop for the power struggle.

  • The debutant director Sam Kelly creates a credibly hard-hitting if depressingly repetitive (fackin, fackin, fackin, fackin) milieu, with shades of Lee Tamahori's classic New Zealand drama Once Were Warriors.

  • Considered storytelling amid the coshing. An auspicious debut from Sam Kelly.

  • A moving character study with bruising moral weight.

  • Shifting back and forth among three watershed moments in the protagonist's life, Kelly draws an emotional roadmap detailing one man's life and how he got from A to B.

    October 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This is a brutal, confronting and, ultimately, very emotional watch.
