-Story: [0 out of 5] It might be different for some of you, but I personally felt that this movie explored many different levels of stupidity and utter ridiculousness from start to finish. Combine that with unrealistic concepts and inept actors and you have a classic example of a frustrating film…. but then again, it’s just one person’s opinion.
-Originality: [1 out of 5] I guess every movie is arguably original in its own rights (except those that just aren’t), so… in its own rights…. wrong target is also arguably original.
-Predictability: [0 out of 5] For the most part, the movie goes as one would expect.
-Directing/Editing: [1 out of 5] Too many unnecessary scenes and the cinematography is not half impressive.
-Acting quality: [1 out of 5] There are two actors in this movie (even that is ‘arguable’): John Dumelo and Yvonne Nelson; all else could not act, exempting maybe Christabel Ekeh who did a fair enough job. Now on to Yvonne and John respectively.
Nowadays, I determine what movie to watch by a single actor in the cast line-up. It’s no longer really about the cast as a whole, as much as it is about a single individual. There are a couple people whose presence in a movie let’s you know what you should expect. For instance, Nuella Njubigbo has a tendency to do mostly family-like dramas. They are simple. They are fun. It’s light hearted entertainment and hard to hate. Nse Ikpe-Etim (the new-Nse, post “Blue Blood”) does ‘different’ movies. The word ‘different’ there just means different. Not that she is undecided in her role choices but the movies she is involved with are usually different from the norm in one form or the other. And Yvonne Nelson is an actress with whom I’ve come to associate that ‘Frank Rajah-esque’ suspense film appeal. So consciously or unconsciously, I’ve begun to pick out her movies from the bunch.
Yvonne carried her role out very well in my opinion, the only one really doing any acting in this movie.
John Dumelo, o dear Dumelo. I have to say again here that John Dumelo did as John Dumelo does. But there’s a question that has been on my mind for a while. It’s an open question so you answer it. Since Adams Apples, has anyone seen John Dumelo in any upscale semi-high budget (or even any sensible) movie?
-Setting: [2 out of 5] Could have found better locations especially for the offices
-Costume/Make-Up: [3 out of 5] Ok
-Props and Graphics: [1 out of 5] This movie is making some outlandish claims with all those tech scenes. So you are suggesting that you have figured out a way to not only track a person’s location via GSM signal and determine their geographic location, but you can also visually see the person even in the absence of cameras in that vicinity? Impressive. Yet even with all this technology, that I’m assuming must have cost a lot of money, y’all still can’t afford proper television in your studio/office/spy-venue or whatever you wan’t to call it
-Video Quality: [2 out of 5] Fair
-Audio Quality [2 out of 5] Good
-Soundtrack: [2 out of 5] Not bad
-Musical Score: [2 out of 5] Ok
