The first trailer for a film that portrays gang violence in New Zealand has received rave reviews after debuting over the weekend.

Broken, a tale of vengeance which claims to be "based on a true story", is set to debut in theatres in 2017.

It is written and directed by first-time filmmaker, City Impact Church pastor Tarry Mortlock.

IMDB reports the film follows Logan, "an ex-gang leader who has left the gang life to raise his daughter Tori. But when Tori is murdered by an opposing gang in town, Logan must choose forgiveness or revenge".

"They need to pay for what they did to her. They will pay," he says.

The trailer has been viewed by 850,000 people and shared more than 20,000 times since debuting on Friday afternoon, and is full of gang warfare - including fight sequences and a grisly axe attack.

According to IMDB, Broken is due for release in February.
