POSITIVES:Well... let me see... ONE actress attempted something close to acting
NEGATIVES:Every. Single. Thing
It is not a secret that I’m not the biggest advocate of Nollywood in USA movies. In my opinion, the entire genre (if you can call it that) should be flushed because I’m yet to see a single one done well.
-Story: [1 out of 5] It is not a secret that I’m not the biggest advocate of Nollywood in USA movies. In my opinion, the entire genre (if you can call it that) should be flushed because I’m yet to see a single one done well. I was really excited when the queen of Nollywood USA (JJ Bunny) moved to Ghanaian movies, if not for anything because I thought that would be the end of the genre, but unfortunately some people are determined to follow suit. In retrospect, if I can say one thing about JJ Bunny movies in comparison, it’s that even though the production and acting and everything else might be terrible, it at least has a storyline that pushes you from scene to scene. The storyline behind this movie is… well… if you want to watch it go ahead but I’m pretty certain you can find a more lucrative way to waste 1hr.
-Originality: [0 out of 5] There is nothing original about the storyline. It’s a storyline that we’ve done so many times that we have killed it, murdered it and raped it.
-Predictability: [0 out of 5] Extremely
-Directing/Editing: [0 out of 5] Very very very poor attempt at directing. A couple of scenes were ok but for the most part it seemed haphazard, tacky, and glued together.
-Acting quality: [0 out of 5] I kept contemplating, 1 or 0, 1 or 0. It would be heartless to give a movie a 0 in acting afterall that’s what happens in movies, right? People ‘act’? Well… apparently not anymore because if this movie is anything to go by apparently it’s possible to make a movie without a single actor. Only one actress was near impressive and seemed in the least capable of pretending to be able to act and that was Dabira Adeoti who plays the role of… well she just plays a role (I feel like I’ve seen her in other made-in-Houston production so her ‘skill’ must be an evidence of practice)
-Setting: [2 out of 5] Could have been worse
-Costume/Make-Up: [2 out of 5] Can’t explain what was going on on Evalonia’s hair but… just ‘but’!
-Props and Graphics: [2 out of 5] Fair
-Video Quality: [2 out of 5] Could have been worse
-Audio Quality [2 out of 5] Problem with the audio and lip being out of sync towards the end
-Soundtrack: [2 out of 5] Eh….no!
-Musical Score: [1 out of 5] Barely any score, just random instrumentals at random intervals.
