Critic Reviews for Countdown at Kusini

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Countdown at Kusini is the sort of movie that illustrates what happens when achievement falls short of aims.

July 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Past the visual pleasure and beyond the emotional excitement created by Manu Dibango's thrilling musical score, there is a message of pride in Africanity not immediately discerned perhaps, but nevertheless, unmistakably communicated.

[Ruby Dee's] a fine actress and was wasted.

Film tends to ramble all over the place, but its intentions are good.
