Two Can Play the Game

-Story: [0 out of 5] Not to offend anyone who thought the story was amazing and interesting, I thought the story was…. stupid and unnecessary and needed not be told. Apparently Yul’s character is playing games with Annie’s character and I don’t catch unto this until… truth be told I never caught on to it, […]
-Story: [0 out of 5] Not to offend anyone who thought the story was amazing and interesting, I thought the story was…. stupid and unnecessary and needed not be told. Apparently Yul’s character is playing games with Annie’s character and I don’t catch unto this until… truth be told I never caught on to it, I just thought they were weird and over dramatic.
-Originality: [1 out of 5] It’s original alright? The backstabbing plot has been done before, crazy couple plot, spoilt teenager, single mother and mother and daughter fighting for the same man as well have all been done before.
-Predictability: [0 out of 5] ***SPOILER ALERT*** In every movie, I get to a certain point where I pause the movie and try to predict it. If in the end my predictions come to pass, the movie looses predictability points, if not then it doesn’t. In this movie I had two predictions from the beginning of the second part of the sequel (aka Best Player 2) and they were that Seun Akindele’s character would not end up with either Tonto or her mother. And that Ali Nuhu’s plot to eliminate Yul will fail because due to some amazing miracle Yul knew Ali’s plan all along. And in the end of the movie, what happened? Exactly what I said.
-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5] Two major problems I have. The first one is Tonto’s speech and the second one still has to do with Tonto. In one scene, Tonto is fighting with her mother and she says, “Sorry to disappoint you mum. You did not bring me up cause if you did brought me up I would have a father?” For reasons pertaining to my laziness, I choose not to address the issue of her gbagaun but rather I would like to concentrate on what having a father has to do with being brought up? In other news, how did the casting director (abi ki l’oruko e) expect me to believe that Tonto was 18? I find it easier to believe that the green wallpaper on the wall is actually money.
-Acting Quality: [2 out of 5] Truth be told, a lot of people in this movie couldn’t act but then some could so it balances out. Although it shouldn’t ever have to. Everyone in a movie should be capable of acting, it IS a movie after all.
-Settings and Costumes: [3 out of 5] Ok
-Video and Audio Quality [2out of 5] Could have been better
-Soundtrack [0 out of 5] Two things could have happened for this soundtrack. First option, Shedrach John has lost his touch because this sound track was hellish (to put it lightly and reminded me of something from Blackberry babes, did he do that soundtrack? I don’t recall). Second option, the movie makers exhausted all available funds in getting top notch actors/actresses that they underpaid Shedrach so he gave them their money’s worth. Because of my niceness and obligation to see the best in people, I believe the latter is the case.
