Reviews

Bang Bang Club nannte man die vier Kriegsfotografen Greg Marinovich, Kevin Carter, Ken Oosterbroek und Joo Silva, deren erschütternde Bilder der blutigen letzten Tage weißer Herrschaft in Südafrika um die Welt gingen. Regisseur Steven Silver verdichtet die wahre Geschichte zu einem fesselnden Actionfilm und zeigt das moralische Dilemma ihres lebensgefährlichen Jobs: Wie weit darf und muss man für ein gutes Foto gehen? Ihre Bilder bewegten die Welt - aber nicht alle der vier Freunde sollten die Jagd nach dem besten Schuss überleben... Darsteller: Ryan Phillippe, Taylor Kitsch, Malin Akerman, Frank Rautenbach, Ashley Mulheron Regisseur(e): Steven Silver

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 July 2013
Format: DVD
The plot has Nelson Mandela's blacks fighting against the poor Zulu blacks. The Zulus are too poor to join Mandela's boycott of work so they fight on the side of the white power structure against the group that is attempting to empower them. Meanwhile four white photographers are out taking photos of the clashes and killings so we can have something to look at when we eat our Rice Krispies.

The film is designed to ask the question, "Are photographers vultures or leeches?" and "When do you put down the camera and help?" I didn't like the fact you didn't have to think about the theme of the film...it was too overt. I like to dig for it. I didn't get attached to the privileged characters shooting pain and suffering. I had a hard time getting involved in the conflict of poor oppressed people fighting poor oppressed people. I really need a David vs. Goliath type story. The movie had some good scenes and a lot of scenes that simply replayed the theme. Okay, we get it.

F-bomb, brief sex and nudity

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER on 30 Dec 2011
Format: DVD
This is the s true story of a group of photo journalists, who came to fame during the civil war that saw South Africa finally end apartheid. It is based on the book of one of them; Greg Marinovich (Ryan Phillippe - `54', `Cruel Intentions' and `The Lincoln Lawyer'). Greg was a freelance but managed to get taken seriously by getting up close and personal with the warring sides. The ANC were in a civil war with the `Authorities' who were being helped by the Zulu Inkatha Freedom Movement. Atrocities were being perpetrated by both sides, but the press was very much on the side of the ANC and working to strict censorship from the ruling white government. Greg went out of his way to hear what Inkatha ha to say - and show him, it is not all pleasant.

We follow the fortunes of Greg and one of the more laid back members of the `gang', Kevin Carter (Taylor Kitsch) who has a penchant for recreational cigarettes and an excellent eye for a good photo. Greg also falls for the Photo Editor - Robin Comley (Malin Akerman) something which she says she never does. In one scene as they enter a bar there is a poster that proclaims, `A Civil War s not Very Relaxing', well we soon find out why. There are graphic scenes of violence, with extensive use of machetes and not a lot being left to the imagination. There is real tension throughout and loads of extras involved in the street and ghetto fighting. Writer and director Steven Silver has done an excellent job to try to recreate the actions that took place and are both from the book and the actual original photos.

The film tracks mainly the four year period between 1990 and 1994 and for the most part does so as observer with an interloper feel.

Mandela's death and the consequences are and will be much in the headlines over the coming months and if you want to understand some of the background of the story. Then, this is an entertaining and pretty factual account of the era and the problems that confronted journalists trying to get the story out into the public domain; not only against the interests of their own minority ruling Government but also, with fatal or life-changing injuries to themselves.

The complex tribal prejudices added to by some members of the security services set to destroy elections and retain power are shown without favour.

Action scenes are shot in the areas events took place with some of the population involved aiding script and direction to try to ensure details are as correct as time and memory allows.

It's not a documentary, but it looks and feels authentic and for modern day photographers remember these guys were using film not digital cameras and the pictures they got often under duress were awarded Pulitzer prizes - and you can see why.

Packaging and delivery excellent.

The Bang Bang Club is a True story about a group of combat photographers who put their lives on the line to get photos during the near civil war that nearly erupted in South Africa at the end of the Apartheid years. This film is a MUST SEE.

The Bang Bang Club is a film that informs and entertains.It is a very poignant film, in that it gives an explanation and understanding of the very complex and dangerous situation of the ordinary men,women and children in apartheid South Africa.
It is an important film, anyone interested in the iconic Pulitzer prize winning photo of the child waiting to die with a vulture licking its beak in the background, has an account of the photo and the turmoil that followed for the photographer.Most people will have heard of the photographer through the Manic Street Preachers lyrics, "Kevin Carter".A DVD worth buying and watching.Tell your grand children, "I remember opening the morning paper and seeing the images that defined a century".

This film is a great depiction of a real story. Captured a very harsh and horrific piece if South African history.

By Mr. G. Bridgeman-clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER on 2 Mar 2013
Format: DVD
I liked this film. Hard hitting (though I do have trouble hearing some of the dialogue and you do need to know a bit about teh history of South Africa). This isn't about Apartheid but rather the inter-racial tensions between the ANC, Zulus and Inkatha. Its a violent story with real images of death and horror so it is not for the faint-hearted. But it is also the story of 4 photographers and their goal to document the violence, two of the photographers ending up with Pulitzer Prize. The film does not hold back and holds your attention for the who story. I liked it and will read the book now as a number of the reviewers feel its better than the film. By the way, Taylor Kitsch (Tim Riggings of Friday Night Lights and John Carter of John Carter) is excellent in this.
