Audience Reviews for Mandela and Deklerk
not a great film, but some good performances by sidney poitier and micheal caine. worth watching if you want to know more about south africa.
the film offers mildly good performances by poitier and caine, both of whom offer more in the realm of emotion than in the realm of accuracy. but the film itself is not emotionally tuned, leaving the charismatic leads out of place and making the film look like a dry history lesson, merely summarizing the events that lead to the end of apartheid. this movie's biggest flaw is the lack of imagination in the script and in its direction. if this film had focused more on the emotional timbre of its subject matter, it would have been a lasting success.
