ABSTRACT
Owing its existence to the real-life exploits of the notorious South African bank robber Andre Stander, Bronwen Hughes' "Stander" 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. Stander's initial act of self-styled civil disobedience may or may not have been triggered by his involvement in the sanctioned killing of unarmed black youths while on Riot Patrol in the township of Tembisa, but, at least as portrayed here, he also was clearly getting off on his role as one of South Africa's most wanted.
