Title: Hollywood depiction of Afrika in Movies
Post by: Bantu_Kelani on August 28, 2003, 07:11:35 PM
Last evening, I saw the movie "Tears of the Sun" with Bruce Willis.. I was so disgusted when I saw it!! The depiction of NIGERIA as portrayed as a warmongering nation forever embroiled in Wars, coups and rebels , with the Amerikkkan 'heroes' going into action to help the 'helpless, refugee souls' repulsed me. The same could also be said of the movie "Black Hawk Down", a film that told only a one sided story (of the Amerikkkans), but not of the SOMALIS. These portrayals do not in any way do any good for Afrikan reputation as it is. Judge for yourself. GO watch the movies.
Hollywood might call "Tears of the Sun" a fictional blockbuster movie, but this is Trash  [smiley=angry.gif]!
