Brave and Boll!
3 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Take the world's so-called worst director and a bunch of washed up actors working from a non existent about the Darfur conflict and you would imagine "Darfur" to be a ceulloid travesty, but oh how wrong you would be. Uwe Boll (yes he of Alone In the Dark and Blodrayne fame!) has crafted a movie that is both poignant and thought provoking and once you have seen it it will remain etched in the memory forever. I doubt that a lot of film makers would have the balls to tackle a subject of what has gone on in Sudan but Boll having zero reputation to uphold, really had nothing to loose by making this movie and so has gone full steam ahead with a portrayal of the genocide that is truly harrowing to watch but is presented with such realism and I think that the graphic scenes had to be such as to truly drill the message home to the world. Credit also must go to the cast which includes the likes of Bily Zane, Kristanna Loken and Edward Furlong who were not working from a script so all had to develop their own characters and each one brings a brilliant sense of realism to the movie and I doubt that any of today's crop of Hollywood talent could have done a better job. If "Darfur" had been made by anyone else I think it would have been the talk of the town and a true Oscar candidate but sadly I doubt this movie will ever reach a wide audience as it should and that in my opinion is a true travesty.
