Editorial Reviews

Inspired by a true story, Gangster's Paradise: Jerusalema is an unflinching look into the crime, corruption and the transgressions of those looking to survive in the most crime-infested district of Johannesburg.
 
Starting off with simple smash and grabs, Lucky Kunene quickly graduates to more aggressive heists such as armed robbery and carjacking.  Soon Lucky realizes he needs a bigger score to fulfill his goals of making it big, and escaping from the slums, to a dream house by the sea.  Kunene hatches an elaborate and violent plan to make his fortune - hijacking buildings from landlords of Johannesburg tenements by winning the favor of the tenants, and then holding their rent hostage from the landowners. His high-profile real estate acquisitions attract the attention of the local police force who have no qualms about using unprovoked brutality to bring him down.   His trouble with the law, coupled with an escalating war between a local drug lord, creates a tense standoff: both sides are closing in, and Kunene must stay one step ahead, or his empire, and his life, will come crashing down.

Pretty cool how the dude comes from rags to riches by helping out ghetto inhabitants by establishing a trust and withholding everyones rent from the landlords until the building goes into foreclosure, then he buys it and charges the tenants a lower rate so they all love him.

Resorts to shooting and violence only when drugs and criminals threaten his neighborhoods, good movie but wouldn't watch it over and over.

Learned alot from this movie. If anyone wants to know how other countries and people survive, this will do it for South Africa. Leaders and followers and others that take advantage of the situations. Could find no fault in any of the cases.

Overall good movie based on actual events. Would love to see more movies with blacks becoming successful and less movies of them being depicted as low class, unintelligent, under achievers (SO UNTRUE!).
My only dislike about this movie - I'm sick of seeing ninjas chasing bunnies every time they come into money.
United we stand. Divided we fall.

Gangsters Paradise: Jerusalema does not present the people of Azania (South Africa) at their best but it does give insight into the way poverty promotes crime, and the way the Azania masses are still suffering from the effect of apartheid. Excellent movie, acting, production values and theme.

Excellent movie! It is nice to see foreign movies, particularly, from developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The acting was very realistic.

Movie came faster than I expected! Clean disc played well. The movie starts off a little dry the first 15 minutes, but after that it kept my interest the whole time! It is a must-see it's great!! Reminds me of a american movie. Interesting to see how they do it in South Africa love it!
