-Story: [0 out of 5] After finishing this movie I thought to myself, “why would any body want to sit through 4 hours of this?” Scratch that… why would anyone get past the first fifteen minutes of the movie? There’s nothing to look forward to from the get go. The narrator’s voice is not that inspiring. Tonto, Artus and Chacha are simply spitting horrible renditions of what they assume to be the English language. Zubby is… acting a fool… jumping off buildings (do you think you’re spiderman? Abeg pull a chair my friend). I don’t know… maybe to some it might have been entertaining (and this is why I prefer to watch movies on irokotv, in order to see what others think) but to me it was a test of endurance.
-Originality: [0 out of 5] We’ve all seen this concept a million and one times over.
-Predictability: [0 out of 5] Even if you are slightly confused/doubtful, the title makes it quite obvious what direction the movie is going in.
-Directing/Editing: [0.5 out of 5] First of all, I thought this was a ri-don-culous movie, so forgive me for not understanding why the heck it’s in four parts. Too much wordy dialogue
-Acting quality: [0.5 out of 5] After watching a couple minutes of the movie, there was one question that remained on my lips/mind/head/heart (in the words of Jenifa, “worrefa”) and it was “Who is this Chuma Uchegbu guy” and “why can’t anybody in this movie command grammar” (I would say “speak English” but I am trying this new thing out called “being nice” – wish me luck!). We are saying that Artus can not speak English then they now come and tell him to play the role of an Americana? Unu a dikwa normal? (Are y’all normal?). From Artus to Chuma to Tonto To Onyi to Zubby to Chacha… everybody was just biting their tongue. Speaking of which, why is this Onyi Alex babe in every movie all of a sudden? If to say the babe sabi act, e go make sense but my girl no act shi-shi, (she can’t even ‘spake’ the English).. yet, every film you see now na so so Onyi Alex, Onyi Alex. Una no see Oma Nnadi? Or Esther Audu? What is Nollywood’s obsession with talentless acts? Oh dear God don’t let me even start with my absolute disdain for Zubby and Johannes. I shan’t ‘spake’ any further on the matter
-Setting: [2 out of 5] Ok
-Costume/Make-Up: [1 out of 5] Liked most of Tonto’s costumes, did not understand half of Chacha’s outfits
-Props and Graphics: [0 out of 5] Occasionally, on twitter, there are TTs (Trending Topics) that attack Nollywood (i.e #ThingsNollywoodTaughtMe). And the jokes on there are always the same recycled rubbish but it’s movies like this that fuel such idiotism. When someone shoots at a person and the victim has kool-aid emanate from his belly (even though he was shot in the chest), the gun sounds like thunder and the effect looks like cheap knock out… and finally they show you the victim’s body and he has red paint splattered on him. How do you progress from kool-aid to red paint?
-Video Quality: [1 out of 5] Could have been better
-Audio Quality [2 out of 5] Fair… needs to eliminate background noises in some scenes
-Soundtrack: [2 out of 5] Ok
-Musical Score: [3 out of 5] Nicely done
