Lumumba

"Weak"

Lumumba Review


The story of the Congo and its struggle for independence from Belgium is a bloody and torrid one, but Lumumba doesn't really imbue the tale with much spirit. Rather, this is a fairly staid look at liberator Patrice Lumumba, intent on elevating him as a superhero above providing much entertainment value. The result: A barely watchable movie.
