| Good tension but lacks background story
Two men get jailed for standing up for equality. What follows is obviously them trying to find a way of getting out although I feel one of two main protagonists is more of a sidekick. There are exiting moments wich make it a fine movie but the background story lacks. I never found out why this equality battle is so important for them which makes it somewhat random. My guess is the viewer is expected to already believe apartheid is abnormal but back in the day it WAS normal in South Africa. Good fun, but no classic.
