Haunting and interesting
12 January 2012 | by dmackay-606-982225See all my reviews

This movie had lots of potential, only some of which has been exploited. Unlike most other South African movies, this movie is not dealing with some huge, serious issue, does not deal with Mandela and is also not filled with toilet humor. This is just your normal thriller / action movie which America churns out in a nauseating volume. Now its South Africa's turn and I think a good job was done.

I thought the camera work was good (and haunting with the muted colors) and the acting was acceptable. No one is going to be winning any Oscars for the movie, but I don't feel like I wasted my time watching this. I loved the gritty feel and the moments of surprising violence at unexpected times (although budget clearly didn't allow for any special effects showing the detail of the more gruesome parts).

If you have the time, take out the DVD, watch and enjoy.
