Bad, bad, bad, bad bad!
21 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film recently and could not fail to be very badly disappointed. Taye Diggs turns in one of the worst, most arrogant performances I have seen in a long time. He seems to display a total lack of sensitivity for the character and the material. You can almost see the other actors cringe. Why? What was the point in casting an Amrican who can't act to play a South African icon? Did they really think that an actor of his standing could sell this film internationally? It has all the makings of a decent film, but from the script to the casting, every opportunity was thrown away! The setting and photography are good and the music is vibrant.
