A god attempt in a worn out theme
22 January 2010 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The Director Darrell Roodt is known for movies like "Father Hood" from 1993 which was a pretty good movie in many ways. When he made "Mandela" the South Africans rased hell when he picked Morgan Freeman (!) as leading role.

Anyway, Mr Roodt knows movie-making and even if his budget were to say the least a little sour the result is really worth watching. The plot is nothing new to the world "children makes the wrong moves and end up in jepardy.Motherly heroin has to confront druglords and her sons pregnant girlfriends worrys.Darrell Roodt knows his streets in Johannesburg where the movie scenes are mostly located and the druglords in South Africa is not in any way different then anywhere else in this depraved world.

Over all its a hangover movie. A movie that does not stick out but is nothing you feel like you wasted your time to. You can even take a little nap ones in a wile.
