Critic Reviews for Burning Sands
You definitely come away from the experience with very mixed feelings about what you've seen and how it was presented, which feels just about right for a story like this one.
There's something powerful even in its predictability-will things go too far? Does the Pope wear a pointy hat?-and in Jackson's fierce, quietly forceful performance.
In the absence of a more dramatically dynamic approach to that awfully familiar subject matter, "Burning Sands" proves neither as incendiary nor as challenging as intended.
Gerard McMurray's drama has more ambition than last year's hazing drama [Goat], as well as interesting racial undertones that the other film did not.
