Stander é o anti-herói clássico - e a direção empolgante de Hughes e as performances do elenco principal fazem jus à incrível história do personagem-título.

Pumped by a soundtrack of period South African funk and dance music, propelled by whiplash montage sequences and rubber-burning Burt Reynolds-issue getaways, Stander is the very definition of good, old-fashioned outlawry.

[Stander is a] taut, well-made crime drama that agreeably showcases Thomas Jane in the title role.
