Sione’s 2 : Unfinished Business (2012) Film Review

After Sione’s Wedding, the boys seemed to have got themselves together. They had girlfriends and a life. And then, suddenly, Sione (Pua Magasiva) drops dead after being hit on the head with a basketball – though it was an aneurysm, nothing related to the hit. But Bolo (David Fane) who threw the ball has disappeared and the boys think he may be suicidal.

Michael (Robbie Magasiva) has returned from Australia, Albert (Oscar Kightley) is taking a moment from attempting to get his wife pregnant, Sefa (Shimpal Leilisi) is trying to figure out why his girlfriend is so happy, and Stanley (Iaheto Ah Hi) is tied up with a new religion. They need to find Bolo and then discover Sione’s secrets.

I really enjoyed Sione’s Wedding, but I liked this more. Sure, there were still a lot of issues around the representation of women, but it is mostly the men who are left looking like the fools. You know what I’d love to see? I’d love to see what would happen if these guys put together a film that had fabulous female characters in decent roles. Come on, guys, give it a go.
