Blitz Patrollie

Written by South African comedian Kagiso Lediga, Blitz Patrollie is a buddy cop comedy set in Johannesburg.

The film chronicles the adventures of Rummy Augustine (Joey Rasdien) and his partner, Ace Dikolobe (David Kau), two police officers who have had the misfortune of being stationed in an anonymous depot in the Johannesburg CBD. Rummy is bogged down with trying to start a family, while the overzealous Ace can think of nothing better to do in the morning than head out and kick some criminal ass.

This hilarious comedy offers itself as a portrait of Jozi and its many contradictions.

Directed by Andrew Wessels, Blitz Patrollie promises to be a film that will visually breaks new ground in South African cinema (that's what the press release says, although it doesn't say how exactly), filled with stunts, shoot-outs, car chases and much more; an homage to Johannesburg, I've read.

One of the film's producers, Isaac Mogajane, had this to say: "Every step of the film has been crafted with the audience in mind, and beyond anything else, we are hoping to give South Africans a serious bang for their buck!"

Blitz Patrollie will be distributed by the National Film and Video Foundation and is scheduled for release in South Africa, next week Friday, July 27th.
