Director Ian Gabriel manages to imbue the genre with genuine freshness while maintaining thematic elements unique to his national sensitivities.
An intense if somewhat overwrought foray into South African street violence.
Gabriel has mastered the street-style rulebook as written by films such as City of God and Amores Perros, and has transposed the tricks effectively to this relatively little-seen setting, but he doesn't have much new to add to the mix.
This sprawling, overambitious South African gangland thriller is hugely entertaining
Each character is defined by a distinct narrative drawn from Hollywood cinema...the languages, gestures, manners, thinking, and appearance of the characters are clearly South African, but they are in narrative modes that are clearly American.
Revelations thus never pack the punch they should and the endgame lacks the electricity that the performances might have generated.
This milieu deserves a City Of God; Gabriels slickly shot, well-meaning but facile attempt to explain an entire society's hardships feels closer to Paul Haggis Crash.
Cinematographer Vicci Turpin achieves a brutal poetry in exploring the sprawling poverty of the Cape Flats shanty town ...
Compelling and powerfully played, but sometimes fussily flashy.
...tells a gripping story with lots of action, with location shooting by Vicci Turpin (on some streets that it's a good bet you will never see in real life-even the cops don't want to go there) and music by Markus Wormstorm are both real pluses...
