Critic Reviews for Viva Riva!
A slick, exciting, well-made crime thriller, dripping with atmosphere.
Pulsing with polyglot music and outlaw vigor, "Viva Riva!" is a raucous reply to the new world order.
Patsha Bay plays the macho title character, but the film belongs to sultry Manie Malone as the dancehall diva he aims to steal from the top mob boss. She makes even the act of applying lipstick spark with erotic electricity.
"Viva Riva!" has its cake and eats it, too. Shoots it to pieces, actually.
Audience Reviews for Viva Riva!
Decently shot film, inhabited by weak characters, going through the motions of a just average script in an effort with very little to actually say or contribute to the genre of crime drama.
A brutal and gripping Congolese neo-noir that doesn't invest as much in character development as it does in creating a raw atmosphere, and so the result is an exciting, realistic blaxploitation movie that turns a generic plot into an interesting return to the grindhouse days.
exciting well made crime thriller from the rep of congo as a hustler has a way of making cash in the gas starved country
