"This is a film about Kiwis being Kiwis, delivered thought the portrayal of a club in disarray and all the wonderful human-ness and drama it brings with it." - New Zealand Herald
"A kind of Best in Show-meets-political-thriller by way of Country Calendar, Pecking Order is a Kiwi "Flockumentary" our dearly departed John Clarke would be proud of. A celebration of passion, obsession and humanity's capacity for competitiveness (even if it involves poultry pageantry), Martinov's tale is less about the birds and more about the characters who make up the club." - James Croot, Stuff.co.nz
"Pecking Order, in a droll, understated way, perfectly captures small-town Kiwi life and puts it up on screen for us all to appreciate...Pecking Order is a local hoot. Go see." - Graeme Tuckett, Stuff.co.nz
