Overall this film I thought wasn't bad. It came out on Sky a while back, I taped it and just forgot where I put it. After watching Lord of The Rings, I then remembered it, so found it, and watched it.
The film is full of flaws...and if you#re a person who looks for flaws and likes films "perfect" then stay away from this one. The dialogue is nothing much to speak of and the story itself is a tad boring. BUT there are two things which I think holds this film together. The two performances by Miranda Otto and Isiah Washington (sorry about spelling) are very good. Otto proves herself in this film that she can handle leading roles, and breaths as much life into the brain-dead dialogue. Washington adds more of a relief to the serious story, and at times some humour. The second thing is the landscapes. I have been to South Africa 4 times, loving every trip and what I thought was the best in this film were the wide shots of landscapes etc.
I would advise you watch this film if you're: - A Otto or Washington fan. - Like Africa and animals. - Into small independent films that no one has heard of.
stay away from this film if you're: - Into "perfect" films. - Hate Otto or Washington - Want a decent story or interesting dialogue.
Overall 6/10...not bad, could have been better but good enough for a couple of hours.
