  • Summary: Set in South Africa, 1985, this is a gripping and sophisticated political thriller full of intriguing and unexpected heroes. While the country is under siege, sanctions are biting, Mandela's imprisonment is an international cause celebre, and the ANC guerrilla terrorist attacks are escalating. Every day the country is more ungovernable as it plunges towards the apocalypse of a race war. Against all the odds, through volatile discussion, intrigue and breakthroughs, they achieve the unimaginable - a precious arena of frail trust between the two warring parties. (Monterey Media Inc.)

  1. The result is something like an old-fashioned Costa-Gavras film but without the leftist sentimentality.
  2. The principals, especially Ejiofor, rise above the starchiness that often hampers portrayals of recent, monumental history.

    Fans of "The Wire," take note: Clarke “Lester Freamon” Peters does an impressive turn as Nelson Mandela.

    It’s a great story. I’ve read books on the subject and have found it fascinating. But even reading Mandela and Desmond Tutu will not prepare you for the barrage of information Endgame throws at you.

    Endgame has promise story-wise, but it ends up taking a turn for the worse through its very confusing storylines and characters. You end up just wanting to turn it off for your brain's sake instead of continuing to watch it. Nevertheless, William Hurt and Chiwetel Ejiofor did a pretty damn good acting job. Collapse
