Critics Reviews

Los Angeles Times
Crackles with forceful portrayals. Funny, violent, impassioned and inescapably poignant, Stander in no way sanctions Stander's turning to a life of crime yet has the courage to see him as a victim of apartheid himself.

Users Reviews

This movie has an interesting look and an interesting story, but there are large parts of the film that just don't make much sense or add anything to the story. It seemed like the movie was trying to associate Stander's motives with Nelson Mandela...
