Am not quite satisfied with the acting performance of some actors and even the actor who portrayed the character of Uthemba seems to act unnaturally in some scenes. At some point though the acting is forgivable but the quite dragging manner of the story was a different case. There were action scenes but unfortunately it didn't catch the attention of viewers. Even the way the thugs were caught were quite off,  imagine bringing them to the house of the sergeant and then he struggles to go out of a cyclone wire fence, quite a queer scenario, for me. I somehow enjoyed some of the soundtrack used especially in the opening and final scenes.

The acting portrayals are not that commendable but am quite amused with the old school tactics made by these con men and women.  Clearly, these are age-old stealing techniques that are used by bad guys wherever they may be. That particular scene where two con women went to a clothes shop and stole a suit, it was quite amusing. Lead character Themba was admirable enough to realize his faults and his decision to help the police was a saving grace for him.
