Escape From Reality
23 May 2005 | by carol-160See all my reviews

Set in Angola, this story is about a white game farmer - Stan Brock as James Mallory - and his family. The plot involving his endeavors to rescue wildlife in a tenuous political situation is rather thin. Further strain arises from the weak relationships of the various characters. In particular, I can't figure out why Mallory's wife ever would have found him attractive - they seem to share nothing in common. Several of the sequences involving wildlife captures may offend those sensitive to the treatment of animals. Another problem area is the overuse of "comedic" animal scenes. Finally, portraying African people fighting for their own land as "terrorists" while glorifying white settlers is frankly racist. The African scenery shots are gorgeous and are the main redeeming element of this otherwise forgettable film.
