Ryan Phillipe and Taylor Kitsch dont quite deliver here. I like Taylor Kitsch but his South African accent is an issue.Ryan Phillipe has range limitations generally. It's not a bad movie but it does lack something.
Good movie. Although I found some of the photographers actions, as portrayed in the movie, irritating at times I don't in the least envy them their vocation. I guess that was the real message of the movie, ie. what an emotional and physical toll it takes to do such a job. Good story though and very well told.
Interesting. Without the hollywood over the top sensationalism. Having two of the original bang bang club members to guide the direction added a normal real feel to the film.
This was definitely worth watching. It left me thinking long afterwards. Educational and entertaining!
I sat through this movie not knowing what to expect. Who was going to be made the “bad guys” but in the end it was a close depiction of what actually happened. The Xhosa's and Zulu’s could not stand one another and whether the South African government used the one group against the other or not does not matter.
Unfortunately I experienced those situations first hand and all the way through the movie I could just feel sorry for the poor people being attacked and killed. Even though this is just a movie it actually happened and probably still does today.
Don’t watch this movie if you can’t accept that these things do happen in the “real world”. It is not entertaining but factual and very graphic.
Liked this movie as the story line was new to me, the acting was great, all young newish stars and all did a very good job. Came across as authentic and representing a reall situation. Photography and production grainy and felt like I was actually there. REAL.
This movie was ok. I really don't think it deserves the 4 stars everyone is giving it. I bit of a long drawn out movie about photography.
Very well done. Don't watch it if you are depressed, it's a tragic story based on real people and events. Amazingly brave journalists, I thank all ethical journalists.
THE BEST PART ABOUT THIS MOVIE IS THAT IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED. THE WORLD STOOD BUY & DID NOTHING TO PREVENT WHAT WAS GOING ON IN SOUTH AFRICA. GRAPHIC TO SAY THE LEAST. AFTER WATCHING IT JUST HAD TO RESERCH WHAT HAPPEN ON WIKIPEDIA HOWEVER STILL NOT SURE WHO THE BADDIES WERE.
