How did I end up watching this? But there again, how did somebody with Pierce Brosnan's pedigree end up appearing in it? My excuse is that ‚??Pete‚?? from my girlfriends work purchased it; maybe Pierce Brosnan needed a new swimming pool? Back to the review. Mister Johnson is a local that thinks he is English and dresses and speaks impeccably. To live the lifestyle, he needs to ‚??duck and dive‚?? to keep up. The films one redeeming feature is the great views of Africa; the landscape, the people and the animals.
