setting and enemy characters too unrealistic
8 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

This episode was supposed to be set on a farm in Zimbabwe. It borrows from the vague understanding that the Zimbabwe 5th Brigade committed atrocities in Matabeleland some time in 1984 and that many White farmers were violently evicted from their farms about 20 years later. But the whole thing is just a cliché. You have an Idi Amin looking officer (wrong country) using wrong vehicles, wrong weapons, wrong uniforms, wrong terrain and wrong village scenes.

Most of the background looks like the English countryside except for a few Venda dwellings (South Africa) that were used in some scenes. I suppose they were mock ups, but again, wrong culture.

The wooden dialogue was equally cliché and the local 'whites' are taught a lesson on how they should behave by post colonial British squaddies. That is, its OK for a white woman to kiss a black man. (A considerable number of Zimbabwe citizens are of mixed heritage - how did that happen?) The scene where the farmer taunts the drunken tsotsi who is holding a knife within swiping range is just silly.

Oh, and the Botswana-Matabeleland border is flat. I know this is fiction, but it is pure fiction. Couldn't they have walked down to Luton and asked a local?
