The great news about the trailer for the Bang Bang Club is that Taylor Kitsch is in it. The bad news, I’m afraid, is that he speaks. Even worse? He speaks in an accent, and it’s not Southern. I think it’s South African, but it’s hard to tell with the blood gushing out of my ear. It’s not helped by the accents of both Ryan Phillipe and Malin Ackerman, either. It’s like a symphony of pleasestoptalkingyou’reruiningthepretty.
The Bang Bang Club is the actually based on the real life story of a group of four young combat photographers — Greg Marinovich, Joao Silva, Kevin Carter and Ken Oosterbroek — who probably aren’t nearly as pretty, but likely speak in a way that doesn’t make you want to gnaw off your own Tympanic membrane.
I don’t know when the release date is on this, but unless movie theaters develop a mute button, I think I’ll pass.
