disappointing for anyone who has lived in Africa

Just a heap of common places, clich├ęs and overall unrealistic depiction of southern Sudanese people, Africans in general. I confidently watched the movie seeing all these good reviews but could not really even watch it all. I am unsure if anyone who has liked this has ever lived in Africa. and I can't believe people would believe African are so naive and aloof.

The best touching movie I have seen

One movie that was really good that may be the most underrated movie because it wasn't filled with with Hollywood drama and promotions was the movie "The Good Lie". Most African based type movies I have seen are always good. I love how this movie starts with a few guys born in Africa who try to advance together and try everything they can to get to America and live happily together. Especially about learning about their child hood in Africa they lost a friend who they thought was murdered long ago. I don't want to reiterate the entire movie, but I cried with the ending when they all found their friend they lost in Africa and the main character gave the friend his ticket so he could go to America with the others so he stayed in Africa where it turns out he would be happier in the first place as a doctor. All in all, I loved this movie absolutely 10 out of 10

Worse than the white Savior stereotype

I must have been watching another film apart from everyone else because this is terrible. This film offers a "feel good" vibe meant to make us go, "good for them!". But in reality this war was brutal and went unattended for years by so many countries. Then you make a movie about the few who survived, never to see their home again. Feel good? They were brought to the U.S. and exploited, it is on screen for all to see! Also the freaking condescension is brutal to watch. "This is ice, it is frozen water!" Give me a break. This film is worse than the standard white Savior B.S. this is a self righteous, depressing, look what we did, pat yourselves on the back and shed a few tears B.S. But hey they made it to America, forget the millions of others who didn't even make it out of Sudan or the sorry state it is currently in now, and let us keep patting ourselves on the back.
