Cast: Nse Ikpe-Etim, Majid Michel, Ramsey Noah, Omoni Oboli, Desmond Elliot, Mercy Johnson, Rukky Sanda, Beverly Naya
 
Introduction: Majid: We could be friends you know? Nse: We could! If you'd stop teasing me wickedly Majid: I promise I'll stop teasing you wickedly..... I'm only going to tease you kindly
 
Excerpt

Not a story-line that fell from heaven exactly and neither is it one that has been photocopied till its death. Nse and Omoni’s stories both had their aspects of originality and their aspects of photocopy. However, the overall work was a ‘masterpiece’ (I’d say mistresspiece though)

Review

-Story: [2 out of 5] You can not take your eyes off the screen… in many-a-scene

 

-Originality: [2 out of 5] Not a story-line that fell from heaven exactly and neither is it one that has been photocopied till its death. Nse and Omoni’s stories both had their aspects of originality and their aspects of photocopy. However, the overall work was a ‘masterpiece’ (I’d say mistresspiece though)

 

-Predictability: [2 out of 5] Depends on what you are looking for… and if at all you are looking

 

-Directing/Editing: [3 out of 5] It was a nicely done job. I was converted and became a fan of Daniel Ademinokan after I saw “Asiri” (needless to say, it’s his only work that I’ve seen so far. I’ll eventually see Omo Iya Kan though). I wasn’t blown away by the cinematography by the way but I wasn’t cursing Desmond and Daniel for shaky cameras in every other scene. So all’s well that ends well… no complaints… no amazement.

 

-Acting quality: [4 out of 5] Oh! They call her the silent tsunami, Nse Ikpe-Etim! Let’s just say, if I could find a wilder more intense natural disaster than a tsunami, I’d use that to describe Nse! Breathtaking from the get go. Spectacular acting. No off scenes. A treat from scene to scene. The acting comes from within and is not on the surface and forced like some people. Mercy Johnson sha vex for this film though. Mercy was amazing as she always is. Majid no go kee person. Breathtaking skinny guy (something you don’t hear everyday). Ramsey Noah! He definitely did his thing. Cameo by Emem Isong (image on left) and extended guest appearances by Rukky and Desmond. Omoni Oboli is a force! You better begin to reckon. Beverly… please stop forcing it. Extras were horrid (like Nse’s supposed ex! I mean… where did they carry that guy from?)

 

-Setting: [3 out of 5] On point nothing spectacular 

 

-Costume/Make-Up: [4 out of 5] Were definitely well done, which is important considering that the story partially revolves around a character’s costumes.

 

-Props and Graphics: [2 out of 5] Alright… y’all were definitely pushing it with all the wind power on Nse’s hair in the last couple of scenes. 

 

-Video Quality: [3 out of 5] Ok

 

-Audio Quality [2 out of 5] Keeps going up and down

 

-Soundtrack: [4 out of 5] Loved it. I remember that it was in this movie that I first heard 2face Idibia’s “Free”… fell in love instantly (oh I thought you heard… say I no like ewa I like beans instead)

 

-Musical Score: [3 out of 5] Nicely done
