Storyline

As a child, Ali Neuman narrowly escaped being murdered by Inkhata, a militant political party at war with Nelson Mandela's African National Congress. Only he and his mother survived the carnage of those years. But as with many survivors, the psychological scars remain. Today, Ali is chief of the homicide branch of the South African police in Cape Town. One of his staff is Brian Epkeen, a free-wheeling white officer whose family was originally involved in the establishment of apartheid but who works well with Neuman. Together they have to deal with crime that inevitably exists in sprawling areas of un- and under- employed people, crime exacerbated by gangs, both local and from other parts of Africa. Their job gets even more difficult when the corpses of two young women are found.

Lose your mind in South Africa
26 April 2014 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Open your mind to a whole mindset apart from the US and find a dark movie with lost souls trying to find some redemption. Orlando Bloom is quite exceptional playing a lost cop with his captain Forrest Whitaker, another lost soul trying to find his forgiveness for crimes against South African blacks. There is a lose tie in regarding an apartheid program to eliminate or sterilize blacks, a true story if you research it. In the end Orlando Bloom's character finds trying to not use violence is his redemption but is forced into it. While Forrest Whitaker's character finds his redemption is to use violence to stop a horrendous plot. Frankly Bloom was terrific and as usual Whitaker blew me away as a wonderful actor totally underrated. His acting as a seasoned cop at the end really came through thou who could see Whitaker as a bit of an action guy !!!! I give it nine out of ten as it is hard to watch but you just can't stop. Seymour Phillip Hoffman and Forrest Whitaker, two way underrated actors who deserve more than they have.
