Umbango Synopsis

You don't need to go west to find a great western!


When Kay Kay, a powerful, ruthless businessman sets out on a mission of revenge against two men accused of killing his brother, he strong-arms the local sheriff into forming a posse of thugs to aid in his vendetta. But when Jet and Owen, the two easy going friends, learn of the gang out for their blood, they prepare to stand their ground and fight back.


It all comes to a head in a final gun-fight, a showdown in the small western town where blood will have to be spilt if the friends wish to come out of this alive.

I was amused by  how well this film replicated the Western cowboy feel all throughout.  The butterfly-type door from the saloon /liquor store is a permanent fixture in most cowboy movies and in here it is strategically seen. The gun fights between KK and the rest of the cast also manifested a very western and cowboyish style that will make viewers reminisce of the American Western films all through the years.  The action scenes were engrossing to watch, never mind if perfect timing was not really achieved but seeing Africans do their own version of a western film is nevertheless engaging especially if you're fond of cowboy and western films.

Get into the Wild Wild West mood with this film! From the costumes to the guns to the attitudes of the actors,  it's all typical Wild West setting to the core.  And my, these African actors can actually get away with it!  These "black cowboys" give commendable portrayals and there's some comedic relief every now and then, too. There are the standard shooting scenes although some scenes have some lengthy conversations also.
