Aro Recommended Stickmen


New Zealand 2000, 94 minutes
Dir. Hamish Rothwell
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Comedy, Suspense/Crime


Aroview: A crowd-pleasing and assured sports-fetish movie, this doesn't shy from being dubbed 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Pool Cues', with its requisite camera smarts, laddish pranks, and chisel-cheekboned cast, but forgive its trespass and this cool Kiwi spin has plenty more to offer than all the other knock-offs.

Robbie Magasiva, Scott Wills and Paolo Rotundo play the lovable rogue trio who get indebted to the local mob psycho and can only save their skins by causing an upset at a major local pool hall tournament. The neatly structured, crisply ironic script doesn't run out of manouevres as the boys resourcefully carve their way through a slate of larger-than-life opponents.
