The movie is well paced throughout. The beautiful cinematography is quite a treat to the eyes. You will feel as if you are watching a National Geo Wild documentary. The acting from all of the actors are commendable and is very believable, except for the Ah Bee and Benji dynamic.

Overall good story-line that emphasizes on the importance of family, tradition, respect and friendship. A movie for all.
