-Story: [2 out of 5] Eh! The story get as e be but it was still a story regardless so what can I say?
-Originality: [1 out of 5] In the beginning, I thought it was interestingly original but as it got closer to the end, it attempted to add a “My Sister’s Honor” spin on the story which really annoyed me because as you can tell from my review of the Jackie Appiah movie, I thought the concept itself was the embodiment of stupidity.
-Predictability: [2 out of 5] The movie started with the end and then had some extended ending. Most of the movie was flashbacks. So was it predictable or not? I don’t know, I was just waiting for it to end already.
-Directing/Editing: [1 out of 5] First of all it was a four part movie which in itself is a big no no for me but something else I caught from the get go was the whole doctors being allowed to treat their family members. I thought according to ethics, doctors and police officers (and folks in somewhat related fields) were not permitted to handle personal cases? So what’s up with Beverly delivering her sister’s baby?
-Acting quality: [1 out of 5] Some extra gullible people (like myself) will see John Dumelo’s picture front and center on the cover for this movie and buy it. Even though we might not like Prince and we might not like Martha or we just tolerate Beverly, we still pick the movie off the shelves because John Dumelo is front and center. Forgive us for thinking that when a person is put front and center on the cover of a movie they might be a major actor in the movie. Only for a person to now come and sit through about 4 hours of film time and John has a little more than 15 minutes of speaking lines. All through part one and two all he does is stand, walk and carry people’s purses. Regardless, John Dumelo did as John Dumelo does. Now I have finally realized the reason why I absolutely abhor Prince David and his so called acting, because the guy is incapable of displaying or carrying emotions. Whenever he said ‘baby’ I was like… eek! Abeg, I hope that’s not how you call your baby at home o. Another person that is equally as horrendous when it comes to expressing emotions was Beverly Afaglo…. alright, she wasn’t as bad as Prince but there’s something about her ‘acting’ that doesn’t seem like ‘acting’ to me. I don’t know who annoys me more, Beverly Afaglo or Ingrid Alabi. Martha Ankomah was actually the least annoying in this movie, in my opinion (probably something to do with the little amount of speaking scenes she had). For the most part, the actors in this movie could not convey emotions so they might as well have been reciting lines to me.
-Setting: [3 out of 5] Ok
-Costume/Make-Up: [1 out of 5] What’s with Prince’s constant indoor wearing of shades? This is not the first time he’s doing it and neither is it the second (something tells me it won’t be the last either). He did it before in “Please Marry Me” as well…
-Props and Graphics: [3 out of 5] Ok
-Video Quality: [3 out of 5] Ok
-Audio Quality [2 out of 5] Up and down sometimes
-Soundtrack: [0 out of 5] Stolen Music: “Concerning Hobbits” by Howard Shore
