-Story: [0 out of 5] I was honestly beginning to wonder about the utter ridiculousness of this storyline. I was. Until I realized it was an Uche Nancy movie. At that point, the fact that the movie made absolutely no sense, began to make sense to me. Afterall, it’s an Uche Nancy movie. The storyline (if I can call it that) was too all over the place for my liking. First of all it’s Ini Edo and her outlandish behavior, then Ini Edo in love with Yemi Blaq, then Yemi Blaq narrating the story of his past, then Nse Ikpe-Etim her past and her present, then Nse Ikpe-Etim living with an old man. Honestly! Was all that necessary? Pick a story… any story… and tell only that story. Do like Tchidi Chikere and make a two part movie if you know that what you have to say is not that long. Needless to say that this movie would have fared way better without the useless sequel.
-Originality: [0 out of 5] The runs girl aspect has been done before and so has the over-milked royalty storyline. Everything from campus romance to village love seems a bit repetitive but this movie is still original in its confusion
-Predictability: [0 out of 5] Indeed had one of the most predictable/stereotyped endings for a movie of this nature.
-Directing/Production: [0 out of 5] First of all, the movie is in four parts (aka too long). Secondly, the last two parts did not even need to be made (arguably none of this movie needed to have been made). Many overly prolonged scenes, especially the party scenes… uhm… thanks but no thanks. Needless to mention the miscasting (na me you wan come convince say Yemi Blaq and Nse are uni students? Abegi… what’s next? Casting Mama G as Mike Ezuruonye’s younger sister in your next movie)
-Acting quality: [3 out of 5] The cast of this movie tells me one thing: i.e the fact that they all agreed to do this crappy movie must mean that the script was amazing and something went wrong during production. Everyone from Nse to Ini to Yemi as we all know are incredible actors (even Tonto Dikeh). Extras were annoying and from time to time some of the main actors were equally annoying (no need to name names, just insert any of the other names I haven’t already mentioned here)
-Setting: [2 out of 5] Ok
-Costume/Make-Up: [3 out of 5] Hmm hmm… all the royal attire… arguably unnecessary. Still pretty regardless.
-Props and Graphics: [3 out of 5] Ok
-Video Quality: [2 out of 5] Ok
-Audio Quality [1 out of 5] Up and down in many scenes
-Soundtrack: [2 out of 5] Ok
-Musical Score: [3 out of 5] Ok
