NR Review

Genre: , ,
 
Director:
 
Producer:
 
Screenplay: ,
 
Year:
 
SYNOPSIS: The diary entries of a young man desperately seeking a wife. Meanwhile, it seems the entire universe is hard at work at foiling his every attempt as the females he comes in contact with are nothing to write home about
 
Parts/Divisions: The movie, Lost Highway, has only two parts: Lost Highway part 1 and part 2
 
Memorable Lines/Scenes: "Girlfriends everywhere. Girlfriends everywhere, not a single wife in sight." "Should I stay because you're safe or should I run? If you ask me to run, I'll run so far because I know you're not safe for me" "See I brought you here to lay you, not marriage. Now you have layed me and I have layed you, curiosity has been satisfied." "Is it because of sex now you think I owe you a commitment?"
 
Cast: Senanu Gbedawo, Rita Dominic, Nuella Njubigbo, Jennifer Edoziem
 

POSITIVES:

Definitely a very easy watch
 

NEGATIVE:

Horrible acting by the extras
 
Excerpt

I think Tchidi was able to play off the film’s absolute lack of actual actors by putting three amazing acts in the lead. In my opinion, Rita Dominic’s acting prowess compensated for the millions lacking in that of all the extras. Every time the lady appeares on screen she reinforces the reason why she was awarded AMAA best actress.

Review

-Story: [3 out of 5]

Its appeal is in its simplicity. It is a light hearted, easy to follow and (most importantly) simple storyline of a guy’s struggle that we can all relate to. Yes! It does seem to get overly poetic at times, yet it’s still a good movie.

-Originality: [0 out of 5]

However, the concepts are really not that original. It’s not anything we haven’t seen before. Its lack of originality, however, doesn’t reduce its appeal.

-Predictability: [0 out of 5]

It goes exactly as you would think it would go. In fact, after watching the first few minutes of part 1, you know who Emeka will end up with and what he will go through to find her. Yet, you still want to watch it till the end. (It also helps that its only in 2 parts)

-Directing/Editing: [3 out of 5]
The cinematography was not fantastic but it did not fall short. The movie lacked that air of excess and unnecessary that is dominant in all annoying Nollywood movies, and for that I’m grateful. No unnecessary flashbacks, no unnecessary scenes, no unnecessary zooming. Straight to the point delight.

-Acting quality: [2 out of 5]

So maybe this movie was filled to the brim with extras who couldn’t act to save their lives, so what? So maybe there were only three actual actors in this movie, so? I think Tchidi was able to play off the film’s absolute lack of actual actors by putting three amazing acts in the lead. In my opinion, Rita Dominic’s acting prowess compensated for the millions lacking in that of all the extras. Every time the lady appeares on screen she reinforces the reason why she was awarded AMAA best actress. The lady is just fire.

Senanu Gbedawo was a delight to watch, a fine boy and a good actor. Might actually start looking out for his movies. See Ghana boy speaking ibo in this movie lol

Nuella did a good job with her role; definitely did the role justice.

-Setting: [3 out of 5]

Ok

-Costume/Make-Up: [3 out of 5]

On point

-Props and Graphics: [3 out of 5]

Not bad

-Video Quality: [3 out of 5]

Good

-Audio Quality [4 out of 5]

No problems

-Soundtrack: [1 out of 5]

Absolutely hated the soundtrack used in the opening credits of part one and the closing credits of part 2. Aside from that, the rest was an instrumental and very well done.

-Musical Score: [3 out of 5]

Nicely done

Movie

    Hi Nolly,

    There is another movie called ” Wrapped in Magic”, when you watch it , it could be considered part 3 and 4 of this movie. You should try to get your hands on it.

    Hey Anon,

    I just looked it up. Saw the cast listing and I see how it could seem like it’s a sequel but it’s not. You see there’s this thing Nollywood does (especially Tchidi Chikere) where they double dip on production and make two different movies usually with very similar storylines, almost 100% same cast but yet they are different movies.

    I explained the entire concept of making movies in pairs on the “For the Promise” review, at http://www.nollywoodreinvented.com/2012/05/for-promise.html
