Bruce Morrison’s film is fast, furious and not exactly an aesthetic experience, capable as the playing is. Without question, though, it has the best stunts ever accomplished in a New Zealand picture, some of them quite breathtaking.
– Derek Malcolm, London Film Festival, 1985
We were trying within a sort of comic-book, fast-moving style for as much reality as possible, so it was fast-for-fast and stunts-for-real. We were also after a general certificate, so I had much pleasure in expunging most blood, violence (except auto-violence) and overt sex. It made me feel quite wholesome.
