"solidly enjoyable stuff with plenty of oddball charm"
Andy Psyllides, SKY
"I loved the film in the same way that I loved 'Eagle Huntress' about eagle competing in Mongolia. Both films shared that shared sense of humanity which a community has when brought together for a common cause, be it breeding falcons, eagles or chickens."
"I found 'Pecking Order' to be a hilarious, unique, heart-warming slice of Kiwiana which will delight and surprise audiences of all ages and is sure to be a hit at the box office. In an era of action hero thrillers, sci-fi adventures, and animation sequels I found it to be refreshing."
Veronica Blake, Indie London
"I loved it! An absolutely hilarious and very pointed exploration of politics and culture on the smallest possible scale. Just brilliant."
"The best chicken film of the year!"
"Pecking Order is a cracking watch with some egg-strodinary and loveable characters who aren't afraid to ruffle a few feathers!"
"Quirky and compulsive viewing"
"Scratch around no further for something different to watch"
"Warm-hearted, very likeable and very different"
“Pecking Order… has everything you want in a movie: intrigue, conspiracy, subterfuge, heroes and villains. Oh, and chickens. Lots and lots of chickens.”
