The passage of time has dimmed its greatness while at the same time imbuing it with a nostalgic element that allows it to work today.

Unfortunately, a worthy message doesn’t necessarily equate to a good movie and, in this case, the inequality is evident.

Genre: Western
Director: Michael Matthews
Cast: Vuyo Dabula, Zethu Dlomo, Warren Masemola, Kenneth Nkosi, Lizwi Vilakazi, Hamilton Dhlamini
