Sowetan Live and Sunday World treated some of their loyal readers to a pre-screening of the local movie ‘Hard to get’ last night.

The movie starring Pallance Dladla as TK and Thishiwe Ziqubu as Skiets tells the story of SA’s own Bonnie and Clyde; a young couple in love with each other and with danger.

Lead actor Dladla described it as “an action romance love story that portrays love through action and teaches one about fighting for love”, during a recent interview.

Readers who attended the screening were asked to rate the movie and give their overall impression.

This is what they had to say:

“The movie was funny, heartwarming and really showed how much talent we have in South Africa. I would rate it 9.5 and would recommend everyone to go watch it as I will be watching it AGAIN on Saturday.” - Lebogang Maree

“I took a friend for the screening and we had a great time. However the movie was ok, it has highs and lows - maybe i was expecting more from such a great cast. I will continue supporting local movies.” - Matsepo Monyatsi

“I had a good time yesterday, overall experience was superb. The movie was one of the best South African movies I’ve seen in a while, big ups to the producers and casts.” - Themba Sibiya

“I really enjoyed it. It’s a pity my friend didn’t understand the SA languages, he had to read the subtitles while I was   already giggling and the translation is not as good as the original language.It is a good movie, combination of comedy, action and romance. The comedy part was outstanding for me. I would give it 6 out of 10.” - Nokuthula Xaba

“The movie is the best I've seen, up a tad notch from Tsotsi, I see it going big, the action there is just so real and non fictional,  I like the Bonnie & Clyde thing going on. I just love how it was executed,  it has that Hollywood action movie feel but you can't miss the locality there, the setting shows that it was brought down to everyday living in Mzansi and there were not trying to make it a typical clean type or so perfect setting.

The vulgar and amount of well sexual intercourse can be pardoned just a bit but it would have been nicer if there was less of that as this is a movie that will be watched by many and basically A LOT of under aged people.” - Ayanda Dladla

“Thank you for a well organised screening, my husband and I really enjoyed it, still talking about the movie today. It is a great movie, refreshing, especially coming out of the South African movie industry. I enjoyed the fact that it is so unpredictable,  kept us guessing about what would happen next. I don't know who is more brilliant, the actors, the director or the writer. Overall, it is a brilliant movie and I would watch it again and again.” - Roseline Manthata

'Hard to get' will be released in South African cinemas on 29 August 2014
