Movie Reviews

Ironic & Mediocre Concert- Africa Mostly Edited Out
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is a mediocre concert. Don't the let the title fool you- there is almost NO Afrcan music on it at all (!) & the performances by the Brit-poppers are lackluster at best. Baaba Maal fans: avoid this DVD- they limit his appearence to 52 seconds- while REM/Corrs get three songs each (12-15 min.)! This DVD is marred by colonialist editing- ironic, eh? Apartheid lives on the DVD."
The concert was great, this DVD should've been better

(3 out of 5 stars)

"I was lucky enough to witness this concert 2 years ago, and it's more than odd that this DVD only has 77 mins., that's too short for a 5 hour concert. The cuts made on artists like Baaba Mal or Lisa Roxane are a shame. I remember Beverly Knight playing an amazing acoustic sing which unfortunately is not here, nor is the whole set by The Corrs or REM which could've made this DVD more appealing. They also edited Mandela's speech, in a clear sign of disrespect. My advice: if you have gone to the concert buy it, it will bring nice memories despite all the cuts, if you haven't look elsewhere."
