GD Star Rating


-Story: [0 out of 5] If I were to describe the storyline (and I use that term veeerrrrryyy loosely) behind this movie in one word, it’d be ‘unrealistic’. Now of course, if I was afforded the opportunity to use even more words, I’d lean towards ‘stupid’ and ‘ridiculous’. I mean… come on now? What is this madness… earlier in the movie it seemed to be going somewhere with the ‘crazy ones’ revelations from her past and what not but then it was all downhill from here. My candid advice is to spare yourself the headache and don’t click play on this foolishness


-Originality: [0 out of 5] This movie reminded me of many different movies (all useless): from Tonto Dikeh in “Dirty Secret” to Yvonne Okoro in “No Apologies


-Predictability: [1 out of 5] It ended the only way it possibly could


-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5] Just like I associate all of the useless movies out of Ghana with Kensteve Anuka, I’m beginning to feel the same way about Afe Olumowe. But there’s a difference in his case. One can note attempts at actual professional cinematography with his work. If only he’d pay more attention to the detail and not hurry through the production, and even more importantly, choose better scripts to work with.


-Acting quality: [1 out of 5] I only acknowledge the presence of two actors in this movie: Artus Frank and Tonto Dikeh…. And you know all is not well when I refer to Artus Frank as an actual actor. But there’s something they say about the one eyed man being the king in the land of the blind, same applies here. One cannot possibly be infuriated by the performance of Artus Frank when there are more important (/annoying) acts to contend with. Enter “Onyinye Alex”. Why is this girl suddenly in so many movies? One would think that if the babe is in all these movies then she must be capable of acting. But MBA! The babe no act shishi. Alright, I exaggerate. I’ve seen worse. But she is most definitely too stiff to be given a lead role already (come, tell me, what is your secret? Is the director your brother? Or your ‘uncle’… jk jk… don’t crucify me abeg). Tonto, hmm… I no fit shout. All I can say is that I’m thankful that in 2012, she isn’t doing so much of these controversial nonsensical type films. The extras and basically ‘almost’ everybody else in this production was torturous.


-Setting: [3 out of 5] Ok


-Costume/Make-Up: [3 out of 5] No glaring faults


-Props and Graphics: [3 out of 5] Fair


-Video Quality: [3 out of 5] I saw the movie on and the video quality on there wasn’t that amazing, but then I saw the trailer and it looked much better. So I assume the quality is highly dependent on your own copy


-Audio Quality [1 out of 5] The audio was all over the place


-Soundtrack: [3 out of 5] Not bad


-Musical Score: [3 out of 5] Fair
