Kiwi director Tim van Dammen follows up his trailer-trash Romeo & Juliet: A Love Song with a benignly bonkers, time-travelling tale of would-be gangstas. When John (Anton Tennet) steals a mystic bracelet and discovers it’s actually a time-travelling gizmo, things get crazy, as John inadvertently creates multiple clones of himself - and not a little chaos - in a delightful comedy centred on dim-witted crooks.

The unique mix of simultaneously droll and broad humour is very nicely delivered by a well-cast ensemble, resulting in a polished oddity that should make a splash at home, while attracting decent overseas interest.

A film destined to be this decade's Scarfies or Tongan Ninja.

The script is foul-mouthed and very funny, revelling in its distinctly Kiwi rhythm and dialogue. There's a dry wit to the gags, frequently bordering on absurdism.

The film is full of the dry humour, comic timing and synthy '80s soundtracks we've come to expect from the likes of Taika Waititi; but it absolutely finds its own tone.

...enjoyably silly and gorily slapstick laughs.
