  1. The movie is stirringly, thrillingly animated; Stander, as some say around Johannesburg, lives.
  2. Reviewed by: Glenn Kenny

    The action is great, the story line unpredictable, the ending satisfying. Stander is crackling. Really.
  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. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler

    Takes a notorious true story about a loyal soldier-turned-bank robber, and pumps it up into charged if uneven entertainment.
  5. The story is so eager to highlight macho action scenes that it loses track of the important historical and political issues it raises.
