The Bang Bang Club DVD Review



Synopsis: Based on the acclaimed memoir by Greg Marinovich and João Silva
As apartheid comes to a violent end, four fearless photographers - Greg Marinovich (Ryan Phillippe), Kevin Carter (Taylor Kitsch), Ken Oosterbroek (Frank Rautenbach) and João Silva (Neels Van Jaarsveld) - bonded by their friendship and a sense of purpose, risk their lives to capture the bloody struggle and expose the truth.

Review: I didn't know what I was getting into with the Bang Bang Club.  This is one seriously heavy drama.  The movie centers around the moral and ethical question of how far a photographer in wartime should go..if they should get involved at all.  This film is full of drama and definately poses questions...does it answer them?  Kind of.  Its a good watch for anyone ready for something very heavy.

Bonus Features: Making-of featurette, Audio commentary with director Steven Silver, Deleted Scenes, Short film by Kgosi Mongake, Slideshow.

Interest Range: Drama
