hakuna simba.......
8 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is not a blockbuster of a movie,Al Pacino,glimmering his name on the movie posters had a cigg-butt lasting appearance or disappearance.i had in the end forgot about ''scarface'',till i saw a cigar tasted by the main actor.so Pacino fans, be wilder-ed.... The lead actor and his Somalian interpreter and friend ,does a decent acting in this drama . The filming were colorful, but the direction and script are somewhat toothless and mediocre and high on khat. Not much pirating or shooting to be a pirate film. It is what i call ''nearly there''......and watching waiting for things to explode makes some 140 minutes seem very long.

Do not avoid this movie,the subject are important,but without angry lions(hakuna simba...)
