Storyline

Kwagga Robertse owns a farm shop in the fictional Southern African country of Nambabwe and usually cons foreign tourists by pretending to kill a lion, thus earning him the nickname 'Urumbo' (Lion Killer) from the country's natives. Kwagga is upset when the UN sends a platoon of incompetent soldiers with the United Nations Transition Assistance Group (U.N.T.A.G.), to monitor the peace process, and ensure free and fair elections after the Nambabwean War for Independence. The U.N.T.A.G's American leader, Major Bradick D. Mackay and his second-in-command, Captain Zapman are offered a diamond worth a lot of money in the U.S., and they must pay 200,000 USD to Duan Robertse, Kwagga's competitive brother trying to buy a farm left to them by their dead father.

Probably the worst movie of my life
23 January 2005 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this movie on a Hungarian commercial channel advertised as a "super movie". The Hungarian title chosen for the movie was more than misleading, it suggested as the movie was a sequel to the "Gods Must Be Crazy" movies. It wasn't the biggest problem though with this movie, it simply underachieved all my expectations. The whole movie is so silly and dumb, it's just not worth watching. It was supposed to be humorous, but most of the "funny elements" are based on racial prejudices and cultural simplifications. Even a Leslie Nielsen movie can be considered subtle to this. Besides the racial based "humor" even the plot is primitive. I don't want to give any details of the story line, it's just simply not worth it. The only remarkable element of the movie was the description of the UN peace-keepers who are portrayed as stupid, careless and corrupt people, which fact was recently reflected in a book written by former UN employees.

The movie was good for one thing: now I know I have to avoid movies directed by David Lister.

To sum it up I would just tell you: DON'T WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!
