Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Review: Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

14 Mar 14

Engaging if not epic

I read a lot of FLICKS reviews before I go to the movies and this one prepared me pretty well. I had hoped for a far more epic treatment, fitting for such a great man, and until that great movie is made - this one will do. It made me get Mandela's autobiography out the library and was bold enough to show Nelson not just in an angelic light - so credit where it's due. And the actress playing Winnie was superb - I'd like to see a biopic devoted to Mandela's wife. For now, this Mandela movie's well worth a cinema visit.
