Leon Schus­ter is at it again

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO CITY BEAT - Welling­ton Mak­wakwa

FUNNYMAN Leon Schus­ter is at it again in his lat­est epic com­edy film Frank & Fear­less.

The movie tells the story of an age­ing trou­ble­maker, a ru­ral African boy, a large dog and an or­phaned baby rhino set on stop­ping the slaugh­ter of rhi­nos.

Tragedy brings to­gether the young African boy named Fear­less, his faith­ful com­pan­ion dog at his side, the lov­able but age­ing trou­ble­maker Sonny Frank, who has a pen­chant for telling tall tales, and a very cute or­phaned baby rhino, Reini.

Their quest takes them through hys­ter­i­cally funny sit­u­a­tions as well as times of tragedy, and they end up as an in­spi­ra­tion and a con­science to a world in need of he­roes.

The killing of Reini’s mother by poach­ers sets these four on an ill-ad­vised jour­ney through the wild African bush to an equally wild African city.

The ac­tion re­turns to the bush, where the four have no choice but to take on a pla­toon of mer­ci­less poach­ers, who are led by a ter­ri­fy­ing ranger turned poacher.

The cli­max is a com­bi­na­tion of Home Alone shenani­gans in­ter-cut with very fright­en­ing real­ity.

Frank & Fear­less is a fam­ily film in the side-split­ting Schus­ter com­edy tra­di­tion, com­bined with a time­less story and huge heart.

The mo­tion pic­ture is cre­ated by a dy­namic team of ex­perts, with ac­claimed film maker Gray Hofmeyr (Jock of the Bushveld, Sweet and Short, There’s a Zulu On My Stoep) as di­rec­tor and An­dré Scholtz and Menzi Thabede as pro­duc­ers.
