Genre: ,
 
Director:
 
 
 
Year:
 
Cast: Nadia Buari, Scott Robert, Prince David Osei, Michelle Ikegulu, Mary Uranta
 
Introduction: Under my pillow is not different from a lot of the movies we have all seen before. The lead actress, Michelle Ikegulu, took on a younger version of Patience Ozokwor, so if you are all gun-ho for the "it's my way or the high way" "by force by fire" storylined movies. Then this is for you. After you watch the trailer, you might be excited to watch the movie, but if you're like me, you would have gotten absolutely nothing from the trailer: no idea what the story is about and no idea where it leads to. That's ok because after watching the movie, I still feel the same. However, on to the review.

-Story: [1 out of 5] I sincerely am not all gun ho for the story because it is not new, it’s overdone. There is only a little of a twist in the movie that differentiates it from the rest

 

-Originality: [0 out of 5] Crap for originality. It’s an overdone story and replacing Patience with Michelle doesn’t change jack.

 

-Predictability: [2 out of 5] I’m a bit shaky on this one

 

-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5] Mainly, I would say it was not a bad editing job. But I am left to wonder if the Editor was for real when he allowed a movie to be published that says “ASLO FEATURING” as opposed to “ALSO FEATURING” in the beginning of more than one part of the movie.

 

-Acting quality: [2 out of 5] It was a movie with a number of stars so the acting was not terrible. However, who wrote the story-line needs to revamp his/her word-choice because getting more than one person to say “diarrhea of the mouth” is a bit excessive. Is that like some sort of an in thing?


-Setting and Costume: [2 out of 5] I am not very pro the car that Nadia Buari was riding. I get that she is supposed to be not very rich but that car looks like some sort of advertisement or a graffiti contest. Pay attention to details. However I do like all the red outfits going on in the movie. After watching this movie, please tell me if you have not seen that house in millions of ghanian movies already. For instance that was the same house used in Desperate to survive, Turn me on and also in that Mercy Johnson movie where she kills her husband, Kofi Adjorlolo.


-Video and Audio Quality [2 out of 5] It is 2011 oh, please get clearer pictures. Wow

 

-Soundtrack [2 out of 5] I was not in love with it at all. Someone tell the whoever is hiring to get people who can sing to do their soundtrack
