It’s as though she filters for the most absolute ridiculous movies (either that, or those who write the absolutely ridiculous movies target only her).

Story

Story: [1 out of 5]

Yes! There is a storyline. Yes! The story [arguably] teaches a morale. Yes! The story might be a reflection of the current state of affairs in some secondary schools. But No! The story was not constructed well at all. No! This is not how to go about sending a message. And no! It’s not at all a movie that keeps you at the edge of your seat (or at the edge of anything really)

Originality

-Originality: [0 out of 5]

No no no… it’s a concept that has been overly explored

Predictability

-Predictability: [0 out of 5]

Overly predictable all though I’m not exactly sure about the ending (it wasn’t much of an ending). Which probably means there was a part 3 and 4 (which I will not be watching)

Directing/Editing

-Directing/Editing: [0.5 out of 5]
Very poor directing. Poor cinematography. Subtitles are not provided for the twi scenes. The camera just spins and circles at will (there is no purpose to half the camera actions). Too many overly prolonged scenes

Acting

-Acting quality: [0.5 out of 5]

The real problem with this movie, however, arises with the talents in this movie (or lack thereof). There were 4 people whose names I knew: Luckie, Martha, Kalsum and Christabel. Everyone else could not act to save their lives; especially the Hausa man with the fake Hausa accent… that was offensive to hausa men worldwide

Now of the three that are well known: Martha’s acting really doesn’t sit well with me. Sometimes she does well, other times it’s too much gra gra. Christable has a lot of potential as an actress and delivers well but needs to learn how to choose her scripts. It’s as though she filters for the most absolute ridiculous movies (either that, or those who write the absolutely ridiculous movies target only her). And finally, Luckie Lawson and Kalsum Sinare. Luckie and Kalsum were barely in 3 scenes so they weren’t really able to buffer the lack of actual acting going on in this movie
