Noyce surprisingly prefers slick surface treatment to cutting into the bones-deep legacy of South Africa's racial division. Nuanced performances and gripping laments are wasted on a sleek, empty action climax.
Noyce's film rises on the undeniable aura of authenticity, because his story is based on real events and people. (And actors Tim Robbins and Derek Luke create vivid characters on opposite sides of South Africa's brutal struggle.)
