Utu is the Maori word for "Retribution," which sums up the chief motivating factor of this New Zealand-produced drama.
Since it is the scout's own village, he deserts the British army, the better to seek "utu." Leading a vigilante force consisting of his fellow Maoris, Wallace kills as many British settlers as he can get his hands on.
The most expensive New Zealand-filmed project to date, Utu was an enormous success upon its first domestic release; the American version runs some 15 minutes shorter than the original.
