  • Summary: The gripping true story of Andre Stander, the youngest Captain in the Johannesburg Police Force and South Africa's most notorious bank robber. (Newmarket Films)

  1. The movie is stirringly, thrillingly animated; Stander, as some say around Johannesburg, lives.
  2. An extremely good picture that, with a little tweaking, might have been a great one.
  3. With his periodic porn-star mustache, shaggy hair and reckless demeanor, the movie Stander embodies a certain brand of brooding outlaw cool that feels increasingly rare.
  4. 60
    It can be thrilling to watch Stander and his gang of gentlemen bandits rack up the loot without ruffling their (or anyone else's) shirt collars. The movie isn't content to rest there, though; it wants to be a caper with a conscience.
  5. Attempts to pass itself off as a fast-paced caper picture doubling as a socially conscious apartheid drama but ends up equally unconvincing in both departments.
