Critic Reviews for Something of Value (Africa Ablaze)
Brooks' chief insight -- good and bad on both sides, tolerance the answer -- hardly seizes the imagination, and the contentious climax, with Hudson carrying a wounded Poitier on his back, has every indication of being intended symbolically.
A pretty, good estimation of the social problems involved.
The picture lacks a feeling for the larger issues at stake, but on its own melodramatic terms it is absorbing and even enlightening.
Adapted from the Robert Ruark novel, this overlong drama about Africa's Mau Mau troubles tries to deal fairly with both sides but never reaches any illuminating conclusions.
Though the story is fiction, the film rings true, with a fair portrait of both sides of the conflict.
