Goodbye Bafana Reviews

Not a bad movie at all, although Dennis Haysbert as Nelson Mandela was the worst choice for such a role.

This film, specially at the end, brought back a lot of memories of watching the news footage of Nelson Mandela walk out of prison a free man.

Bit slow at times but I enjoyed it and I also learned a lot about Mr Mandela's imprisonment that I had not known before.

In the end this movie just reaffirmed my belief that discrimination, whatever it is, will always lose against the goodness of equality.

BTW, this movie's alternate title is 'The Color Of Freedom' which is what Netflix has it under.

Let me tell you now this movie is pretty long...longer than expected but very well done. I'm glad it doesn't try to do too much to sell the story just sticking the life of the guard. Thumbs up from yours truly.

Very good movie, didn't really know how Nelson Mandela was living during prison times...

This true story about Nelson Mandela's prison guard is well acted and moving but hampered by mild direction which fails to eke out everything possible from the material.
