Terror At The Mall – Movie Review
Plot: A documentary detailing an indiscriminate terrorist attack that left 71 dead in Kenya.
Review: On September 21st, 2013 a group of young men from a radical Somali outfit related to Al Qaeda known as Al Shabaab, stormed an upmarket mall in Kenya’s capital of Nairobi and went on a killing spree that left an estimated 71 people dead.
The film follow the heart-wrenching stories of the survivors of this terrorist attack as they narrate the accounts of that Saturday afternoon.
Terror At The Mall is a masterpiece for any documentary. Thanks to the compiling of CCTV footage from inside the mall and the narration of the survivors, the film is brilliantly constructed to recount the events that took place that fateful Saturday.
I for one cannot imagine going to a shopping center and then having to fight to stay alive, while idiots who profess to be part of a cult go on a rampage and kill innocent people, including women and children. It just goes to show you what the world is coming to, when extremists commit senseless acts of violence. I have some very strong feelings on the subject of Al Qaeda and ISIS Extremists, but those I will not share publicly.
It should be noted that some of the footage you will see is very graphic, and it does show bloodied people struggling to stay alive only to get shot over and over again by these cowards.
If you have a strong stomach, then by all means you need to watch this film.
Verdict: Riveting film-making.
My Rating: 9 out of 10.
