Good idea to place 'Something Good' in Africa. Now take the idea and make a good story. Huh? Lets just mix&match visual effects and feel-good myths about (good) Africa and the (bad) western world. Good looking actors do the rest.

How is the leader of the most advanced technological society in the world chosen? Of course, by a fight to the death! The survivor gets absolute power. That results in is peaceful, diverse society (tribal of course), women are empowered (the leaders are men of course).

Strange mix of movie cliches with deep wishes from the PC squad packed in a visually appealing 3D movie.
