Africa United Reviews
Africa United has some great performances from the cast, particularly from the five children, who clearly have a lot of talent. The young actors and actresses were great as their characters as we see a funny and serious side to their characters and the way they portrayed them in the more serious scenes were quite emotional and moving. Africa United does have a couple of great scenes where the messages in the movie really tell the audience what it's really like in Africa by showing the good side and the bad side. With a decent script, brilliant performances, great timing and messages that make an impact, Africa United is a great family movie that balances the lighter, humorous tones and the darker, emotional tones very well.
Africa United is rated a 12 certificate, which is quite surprising considering some of the themes in the story but it's done in such a clever way that it makes the audience more aware of the serious issues. Obviously, this isn't a movie for younger children to see but it's okay for those who are about the age of ten or older. There's quite a few messages in the movie, some mature than others, that will make a bit of an impact on the audience. Overall, everything was good about Africa United and there's not many bad points about it. It's a good family movie that shows the ups and downs of Africa and the journey of five kids wanting to see the World Cup.
