Twins on Fire
NR ReviewGenre: Drama
POSITIVES:Mike Ezuruonye and Patience Ozokwor
NEGATIVE:Movie is too ridiculously long... I think it's 8-12 parts? In 2012?
Somebody please gbagbuo (shoot away) this Zubby kid and his so called acting. Whilst you are at it, strike down Chacha’s horrible fake accent.
-Story: [1 out of 5] It was the end of part 2. So about 2 hours into a four part movie and I still had no clue what the movie was about. One might need a GPS to locate the storyline in this movie. After reading the synopsis, I thought to myself, so this first 2 and a half parts were just exposition. Have you ever heard of such madness? What was the purpose of the whole Zubby Michael storyline addition? The way I see it, we’d have been better off if part one and half of part 2 were just cut out. What am I saying… let’s just cut the entire movie out abeg. Some movies need not be made.
-Originality: [1 out of 5] An original mess. Concepts we’ve seen before but less well developed than we’ve ever seen them before
-Predictability: [1 out of 5] Many things were a given
-Directing/Editing: [1 out of 5] First of all, it’s important to note that the casting director was really very smart. He has a useless script so he adds Mike Ezuruonye and Patience Ozokwor to give the movie… momentum? And then he does not bring Mike in until the end of part one so basically everyone is enduring all the pain thinking ‘it will all get better as soon as Mike comes in’. Regardless, I still think the movie was stupid. The first two parts were unnecessary. The entire thing was ridiculous. It was overstretched and a blatant waste of time. Typos in the opening/closing credits.
-Acting quality: [1 out of 5] Somebody please gbagbuo (shoot away) this Zubby kid and his so called acting. Whilst you are at it, strike down Chacha’s horrible fake accent. Take away with you Chacha’s twin sister’s ‘fake’ (no other way of wording it). And don’t forget to stone ALL the extras. First thing’s first: Zubby Michael… it’s not yet time for you to become a lead anything. Please stick to supporting supporting-actors because if this movie has taught me anything, it’s that seeing consecutive scenes with you in speaking roles has the capacity to make one nauseous. I honestly wonder why Mike Ezuruonye is in this movie… do you not realize your worth? I mean even you must know that you’re too good for this script.
-Setting: [3 out of 5] Ok
-Costume/Make-Up: [2 out of 5] …it could have been worse?
-Props and Graphics: [1 out of 5] Fire shooting out of a gun? Really? In 2012!
-Video Quality: [3 out of 5] Good
-Audio Quality [2 out of 5] Up and down some times
-Soundtrack: [1 out of 5] All I can do is laugh
-Musical Score: [3 out of 5] Nicely done
UPDATE: THE MOVIE TWINS ON FIRE HAS A PART 5, 6, 7 AND 8. THE PARTS ARE BEING SOLD SEPARATELY FROM THE FIRST FOUR PARTS. YOU CAN WATCH THE MOVIES WITHOUT THE FORMER, OR YOU CAN WATCH THE LATTER WITHOUT THESE!
THE MOVIE: “LIVES IN DANGER PART 1 AND PART 2″ CAN BE SAID TO BE THE PART 5 AND 6 OF TWINS ON FIRE
THE MOVIE: “ROYAL CHALLENGE” CAN BE SAID TO BE THE PART 7 AND PART 8 OF TWINS ON FIRE.
NR Recommends: If a movie even dreams of having 8 parts in 2012, that movie should be broken into tiny tiny pieces, have kerosene poured on it and have a match lit to it, and then have members of ‘Mountain of Fire Ministries’ form a circle around it praying “bind it by fire!… Fire! FIRE!!”
