Were any of these writers actually in South Africa during this time?
9 November 2017 | by tinyfordstSee all my reviews

Another series of propaganda where a terrorist is praised for killing people. Seriously it's shocking why the writers didn't just make a film about the amazing feats of Osama Bin Laden! Any South African who lost family members in terror attacks executed by the ANC will be the first to tell you that this is the ANC side of the story. If the writers actually told the whole story you would see thousands of people killed with bombs as well, but, this is just political propaganda to build up the name of a murderer.

That said, let's talk about the acting, even the great Laurence Fishburne couldn't breathe life into this role as he is forced to represent a fictional character instead of the real Mandela. But probably the worst role of them all was the horrible Russian type South African accent of Michael Nykvist! His acting and accent is not only unbelievable, but also SUPER INSULTING to any Afrikaner, if this is how the rest of the world hears Afrikaners I don't see any future for any Afrikaner as they sound way too stupid to not let anyone listening burst into laughter.

All in all I would say don't turn to this if you want accuracy of any sort, for just a drama you can give it a shot I guess
