How To Steal Two Million (A South African Movie)

.



.



Lately I have been watching a lot of Non Nollywood and Ghana movies, cos as you can imagine like many others been feeling, the mediocrity in script writing (always predictable) and worse of all actors is becoming so redundant. I need to stimulate my mind with better movies, so until Ghana and Naija up their game, with great releases (such as Lionsof76 - and Izu Ojukwu production which i am waiting for), I will be watching other movies from other African countries worth my time. The mediocrity and recycling B.S got to stop, and so far as you keep praising IT, watching it and buying it, It wont.!!!
.
In the tradition of the heist movie, How to Steal 2 Million has an intricate plot woven around the characters' attempts to formulate a plan, carry it out, and escape with the goods. 
.
The film tells the story of Jack (Menzi Ngubane), who has spent five long years in jail after being arrested for robbery. His partner in crime and best friend Twala (Rapulana Seiphemo) never got caught and Jack never talked. When he is released, Jack decides to go straight. 
.
He wants to start a construction business, but after being rejected for a loan he must find another way to get money. An opportunity presents itself when Twala suggests they rob a home where the take is worth R2 million. The film also stars Terry Pheto, Hlubi Mboya and John Kani. 
.
Watch out for this movie, The trailer looks super exciting and interesting, and it was also selected and screened at Fantastic Fest, the largest genre film festival in the US and it was also featured in the African Film Festival in New York. These are the kind of movies I support, ones that are deem worthy to make it to international film festival , and to give Africa some respect in a positive light (not runs, razz babes, or campus movies).
