A good film spoilt as the South African accent was nigh impossible to understand.
on 27 September 2013
I expected great things from this movie,but when I failed to decipher the strong S.African accent,and then find there were no subtitles to help me, well I just stumbled through it all.The strongest accent belonged to the lead actor,and if it hadn't been for the occasional English subtitles when the Zulu actors talked in their own language (Bantu?) I would not have had the slightest gist of what was going on..
How other reviewers seemed to have no problem is beyond me,unless they understand Afrikaans which I believe was developed from the German language.Also I would like to add I do like the choice of subtitles in all films,as sometimes even English bred actors and actresses have indistinct diction.
I am so sorry I cannot give this film a better rating,but not understanding what is going on is a big thumbs down from me as well as a waste of money.
