OK film with qualifiers!
2 November 2019 | by fairwindstodaySee all my reviews

Having worked in Africa for many years, I thought I would put in my two cents. The Third World nations of Africa are poverty-level and caught within constant political strife and corrupt governments. Poaching, for instance...elephants for their tusks has a different meaning for Africans than the rest of the world. They have no concept of what 'extinction' means and that these magnificent animals are a legacy that must be protected. Since they are poverty-stricken it is always about whatever meager profit they can make, whether it is illegal or not! Since these animals have been around for millennia, they see no problem with slaughtering them. The film itself is a cutesy-pie, unrealistic and Pollyanna western viewpoint of deeply troubled nations. The most dangerous animal in Africa is the mosquito, which kills half-a-million people per year on the planet, so living and working there is not a cutesy-pie experience. In this respect it is a disservice to what is really going on, but then who doesn't like Rob Lowe?
