Goofs

The trial scenes often resemble a US court more than a South African one - the lawyers pace about the room and address their points in directions other than solely at the judge (South African trials have no jury). See more »

Hi profile convicted of murder.
5 May 2019 | by mmunierSee all my reviews

I had no particular interest but curiosity to watch this movie on TV. In retrospective if anything I probably would have prefered it to have been a fictional work. But it's not and I feel it is a case of "he says, they say". Being a film with some entertainment value being of some priority, one can not criticise too much how dramatised it was. I prefer straight stories with limited flash back. I regret the actor had a very different look than Oscar. And not sure about the South African accent, I thought it should have been a little stronger but, yes, I'm unsure. It was reasonably acted though and as a fiction would have been also reasonably entertaining. I guess I was too busy to analyse the pros and cons of the account about it. But I find it difficult to believe he could have been innocent. I just felt some people who are used to get what they want may stop at nothing to achieve such a goal. He proved this in his sport. I understand his family is suing the film company, obviously in disagreement with it's representation of the facts... However I'm surprised to see so little reviews here and apologise for not really being an objective reviewer and neither being much talented to review at all, yet I love to do it!
