Eagle vs. Shark poster

Waititi started his career on a strong note. Eagle vs Shark manages to be extremely funny, strangely awkward and surprisingly touching, all at the same time. Horsley and Clement are perfect, the film is short and to the point and even though it's obviously a low budget affair, Waititi turns it to his advantage.

Solid pieces

Fun, amusing and Andersonesque WWII comedy. Waititi clearly had a lot of fun playing Hitler, the rest of the cast was visibly enjoying themselves too. The jokes are funny, the drama is decent, the setup feels original. Somehow I got the feeling the film didn't use its full potential, but it's definitely a recommended watch.
