Audience Reviews for Masai: The Rain Warriors


Cheesy pseudo-documentary about the Masai. It's a fictional story operating under the pretense of being informative, and neither seem to work. Engaging only on the most basic levels.

I'm a total nerd for reviewing things I saw in a non-film class, but so be it.
