-Story: [4 out of 5] A story that needs to be told. A story society has learned to shy away from. A story that is ever present in many families. However, the ending was indeed extremely anticlimactic. I expected… more. I was looking for… something else. A different ending. A SATISFACTORY Ending… which, I wan’t given. To put it simply… where is the part 3? lol
-Originality: [4 out of 5] One of it’s kind.
-Predictability: [4 out of 5] There’s nothing in this movie that you see coming. Nothing gives anything away… and that’s probably one of the best parts of the movie.
-Directing/Editing: [3 out of 5]I can not overemphasize the fact… the resounding fact… the o-so-obvious fact…. the fact about which if any disagrees they can proceed to cross a busy road blindfolded… the fact that Izu Ojukwu is a genius. I’d have to say though that the most endearing aspects of this movie was that you can tell that true research was done before the script was written. I’m not talking googling character traits of the molested female. I’m talking… exploring every facet of the matter and really going into the consequences and after effects of the issue. A job well done
-Acting quality: [3 out of 5] Lemme start with the things that I’m most likely to forget. I loved everyone in this movie and the only person to whom my love did not reach would be the character who played Kalu Ikeagwu’s fiance. I am at a loss as to whether it’s just her character that was supposed to be ‘fake’ or whether she was the fake one. Regardless, it wasn’t well done all of the time but then again compare her to your typical ‘extra’ and she becomes a Genevieve. I loved the child actors…. I loved loved loved them. They didn’t have that many lines but with their faces, I was ready to stab their abusers. Standout performance to me… I can’t decide between Rita and Mercy because I could see the truth in both of their renditions. By ‘the truth’, I mean that these ladies carried their characters emotions, struggles, fears, pains and troubles perfectly well. So much so that (like I said earlier) the movie became like a mirror for me. Loved Kalu. Loved Yemi. RIP Ashley Nwosu
-Setting: [3 out of 5] On point
-Costume/Make-Up: [4 out of 5] Well done especially with Mercy’s Nerdified outfits and Rita’s spunkified persona.
-Props and Graphics: [3 out of 5] On Point
-Video Quality: [3 out of 5] Good
-Audio Quality [1 out of 5] Goes up and down too many times for comfort and in some scenes the audio came after the lip movement.
-Soundtrack: [4 out of 5] Amazing
-Musical Score: [4 out of 5] Lovely
