Madiba (2017) Rated TV-PG

madibaA miniseries based on the life of Nelson Mandela. Starring Laurence Fishburne, Orlando Jones, David Harewood, Michael Nyqvist, Terry Pheto, Jason Kennett, Kate Liquorish, Hlomla Dandala, Meren Reddy.

I was really looking forward to this miniseries with hopes that BET would be able do justice to Nelson Mandela’s extraordinary life in six hours (not an easy feat). Unfortunately, they took the easy road and avoided all sense of conflict which permeated Mandela’s life. They also somehow managed to strip Mandela of his humanity, choosing to simply retell the facts without connecting us to the man himself. A disappointment at best, this series is a pass.
