Excerpt

First of all… stop it! Abdul Salam Mumuni! Stop it! Frank Rajah Arase! Stop it! Venus Films Production… I mean… seriously? Did the fountain of stories dry up in your area? Why is everything y’all make a rip? But on to matter though… the annoyingly long speech in the beginning of the movie… argh! Secondly, all the continuous (and overly similar) scenes of Yvonne Nelson (aka Princess Tyra) being a rich spoiled arrogrant brat were a bit excessive (it’s ok! We get it! She is everything Van Vicker does not want… move on already)

Review

-Story: [4 out of 5] Say what you may against the movie, you can not deny, however, that it was an interesting story.

 

-Originality: [0 out of 5] I was trying to wrap my head around how many movies, this movie is similar to before I started typing this review and I eventually lost count (but I will attempt to list as many as I recall). The movie seemed very reminiscent of another Venus Production, Beyonce – The President’s Daughter, however, that had to do with Presidents and this has to do with Kings. Hence, in an effort to draw closer to home/roots/motifs, I think I’ve finally arrived at which movie this one was stolen from. The movie, Princess Tyra Part 1 and 2, is a rip of the 2004 movie, “The Orphan” starring Nkiru Sylvanus and Jim Iyke. Whilst the 3rd part of this movie is a rip of the 2006 movie, “Consequences” starring Ramsey Noah and Kate Henshaw. There are also ties between this movie and “World Apart” and “Coming to America”, amongst many others.

 

-Predictability: [0 out of 5] If you’ve ever seen an African movie in your lifetime then I guarantee that you can predict the ending of this movie.

 

-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5] First of all… stop it! Abdul Salam Mumuni! Stop it! Frank Rajah Arase! Stop it! Venus Films Production… I mean… seriously? Did the fountain of stories dry up in your area? Why is everything y’all make a rip? But on to matter though… the annoyingly long speech in the beginning of the movie… argh! Secondly, all the continuous (and overly similar) scenes of Yvonne Nelson (aka Princess Tyra) being a rich spoiled arrogrant brat were a bit excessive (it’s ok! We get it! She is everything Van Vicker does not want… move on already)

 

-Acting quality: [2 out of 5] I got a very ‘rigid’ vibe from every other actor in this movie. Many extras seemed very uncomfortable in the roles. In almost every other scene, I felt like Yvonne Nelson was reciting her lines. Van Vicker didn’t half piss me off in this movie, he was actually a decent act. Speaking of pissing off, o dear Rama Brew, if I had a stone in my hand and I was sitting on a stool whilst you were performing this? I would stand up from the stool, drop the stone, pick up the stool and use that to stone you… argh! Character annoying! All the grammar sef don tire me. Kalsum… madam force! Jackie Appiah… has done better work.

 

-Setting: [3 out of 5] Nice

 

-Costume/Make-Up: [4 out of 5] Extravagant

 

-Props and Graphics: [4 out of 5] On Point

 

-Video Quality: [3 out of 5] Ok

 

-Audio Quality [3 out of 5] Ok

 

-Soundtrack: [4 out of 5] I don’t think I can possibly ever forget this movie’s soundtrack

 

-Musical Score: [4 out of 5] Nicely done

Soundtrack

Princess Tyra, 8.5 out of 10 based on 4 ratings

      I think you mean “save my soul” and that was from Beyonçe the presidents daughter. Check for it on YouTube. If that’s not what you mean then I’m sorry. I don’t know.
