Movie Reviews

All DVDs should be this good!
Tom Sanders | Lansing, Mi United States | 07/31/2001

"DVDs range in quality (not of the material on the DVD, but the quality of the DVD itself) from a low of Kurosawa's wonderful movie Ran, with its' unwatchable color smears and ghosting, to this DVD which has the sharpest images and best production values I've ever seen. The extra material on the DVD is wonderful and the Gumboots show itself are awesome. Think a South African Stomp. If you love dance and harmonizing music, you really owe it to yourself to check this out."

"I bought this DVD sometime ago, but forgot about it until I discovered it just sitting there among my DVD collection. I watched it and bwoy! was I taken away or what? Being originally from Southern Africa brought back many memories as we used to grow up listening and mimicking Gumboot dancing. This is a must-see DVD and the dancing, choreography and music has been excently put together to bring this explosion of energy and power! Makes you feel like you are actually there...."

"Words simply cannot describe what is contained on this DVD! We bought the VHS version and played it every night for a week and just ordered the DVD tonight. If you have ever seen a Black Greek stepshow, this is like the championship level with gospel harmonies mixed in. It is awesome! A must see, over and over and over....."
Fantastic !!!!!

"I just saw Gumboots live last night. It was fantastic. What Riverdance is to Ireland, Gumboots is to South Africa. If you enjoy dancing and singing you will enjoy this DVD. There is even a little light humor. Very energetic."
