The acting performances are quite commendable and the actor who played the role of Bra Jack was impressive. This familiar face in some of the African films I've seen just proves to show that he is a popular local actor during that era. His sidekicks, Jabu and a girl named Thabi were also outstanding, and also familiar faces who also starred in other African films. They are sly and cunning despite their seemingly harmful nature.  Worth checking out!

There are suspenseful scenes here like that scene where bad guy Jabu was  chasing Thuli who had the chance to escape. A story that revolves around the good and bad intentions of men,  the actors did well in terms of acting portrayals. The actress who played the role of Thuli was commendable and acted naturally.  I was just quite amused by the ending,  because it seems it was actually very easy to scare away the enemies. Nevertheless the movie was quite engrossing and the musical scoring  was quite okay.
