Apartheid. Blacks and whites. The story of an honest cop who can't stand being one, and that white men get away with anything while they try to keep the blacks under control, and so he starts robbing banks. As a white man. And nobody suspects a white man. A policeman even less.
That man is André Stander, and this is his story. Of him as well as his two companions, and the havoc they wreck in Johannesburg and beyond.
The filming's great. The cast's great (props Thomas Jane, David O'Hara, Deborah Kara Unger and the rest), and the story both chaotic and clever.
You don't get annoyed at anything being either too predictable or too presumptuous, which I guess goes with the realism, this being based upon a true story and all. It feels gritty and authentic, and both personal and impactful. It has a story to tell, a message, and it's not much like any other I've witnessed so far.
But that ending... justice sure works in a strange way...
rated 4.5/5: almost awesome
