      Luke Buckmaster Guardian Despite the spectacle, it’s the human faces, particularly Curtis’, that will linger most vividly. Rated: 3/5 Oct 12, 2022 Full Review Brian Tallerico RogerEbert.com An accomplishment in tension, courtesy of a propulsive pace from Kahi. Sep 26, 2022 Full Review Peter Gray The AU Review In the film being a response to such unjust raids, there’s a strength and a realism in the anger projected that layers the film with a certain sense of hope; even if the noise is coming over a decade after the fact. Rated: 4/5 Oct 31, 2022 Full Review Jane Freebury Jane Freebury Pumped police take the film into actioner territory despite the breathtaking beauty of landscapes and issues raised like divided loyalties Rated: 3/5 Oct 28, 2022 Full Review Rachel Ashby Flicks (AU, NZ, UK) Muru is a masterclass in storytelling, proving that sometimes fiction can get us closer to truth than any documentary. Oct 3, 2022 Full Review Oliver Weir The Playlist Though the film is frequently addled by its lust for spectacle, it is not without its moments of brilliance.
