Watch Free Online Viva Riva Movie Trailer Reviews Cast And Crew

Hollywood Movie Viva Riva! (2011)

Movie Plot Summary:
Riva is an operator, a man with charm and ambition in equal measure. Kinshasa is an inviting place. With petrol in short supply in DRC's capital, he and his sidekick pursue a plot to get hold of a secret cache - barrels of fuel they can sell for a huge profit. Of course they're not the only ones who want the stuff. Cesar is a ruthless, sharply dressed foreigner thriving in Kinshasa's lawless streets. A female military officer joins the fray. Even the church will betray its tenets for a piece of the action. But Riva's main nemesis is Azor, a crime boss in the classic style: big, decadent and brutal. He's not a man to mess with, but his girlfriend, Nora, may just be the most seductive woman in all of DRC. Riva catches sight of her dancing at a nightclub and it's not long before Nora matches the fuel cache as a coveted object of his lust.

Movie Review:
By Santa Monica, CA: 21 May 2011
Extremely poorly acted and slow to get going, Viva Riva manages some interest in seeing what the worthless, depraved types will do next in the way of merciless violence. There's no one to root for as everyone's corrupt and thuggish – and evincing no interest in living any other way. There are some cultural revelations that would be politically incorrect in a movie not directed by an African: the self-hating nature of many Congolese toward their kleptocratic culture and a wistful feeling that maybe things under colonialism were better. What's most unfortunate about the film however in the opinion of one who lived in Kinshasa many years ago is the lack of depiction of Congolese strengths in the wake of so much cupidity. A strong, stoic people, struggling to get by, and usually without violence and serious graft; and the continent's best music and musicians bar none. You'd never know anything positive about these people or this place based on this silly over-the-top yet still boring crime melodrama.
