Review

-Story: [2 out of 5]

There are so many ways in which this movie could have been better because it actually had an entertaining storyline. I saw what they were trying to do, and anyone else with eyes can also see this, but they fell ridiculously short with the ‘talents’ (or lack thereof) used in the movie.

-Originality: [1 out of 5]

The concepts explored are arguably original. The movie really reminds me of that old Segun Arinze and Bimbo Akintola movie “Husband and Wife” (just that that had better actors and production)

-Predictability: [1 out of 5]

Comme ci, comme ca, really there’s nothing to predict.

-Directing/Editing: [1 out of 5]
Thank you for making a movie in two parts. Thank you for not filling the entire thing with unnecessary rubbish. But the cinematography in this movie was lacking and arguably nonexistent. The casting? Who did the casting? Let me stop there….
-Acting quality: [0.5 out of 5]

I struggled on whether I should put a zero for acting or a one because to be honest there really was only one actor in this movie, in the person of Mike Ezuruonye. Annie Macaulay managed to almost do something convincing every other 5 scenes, but for the most part you just get used to Annie’s “acting”? But everybody else…. what are you doing? Especially Mr. Narsh Alexis. I have been misfortuned to see you in one other Ghallywood production (The Diary) and I remember that day strongly praying and hoping that the day would never come again when I would sit through 3 hours of film starring you. But I guess my luck ran out cos here I am again, and there you are on my screen. And between those two productions, exactly how much better have you become as an actor? I dare to say you’ve regressed.

There were some scenes involving Narsh where he would say a line which was intended to be deep and uber romantic and all I can do is laugh afterwards and wonder why Annie Macaulay (the target of these supposed love words) was not laughing too. The fact that Annie didn’t break out into laughter whenever Narsh delivered those lines, that’s the ultimate evidence that the babe can act

And everybody else? The less said, the better.

-Setting: [2 out of 5]

Adequate

-Costume/Make-Up: [2 out of 5]

Ok

-Props and Graphics: [3 out of 5]

Not bad

-Video Quality: [1 out of 5]

Very terrible lighting in one too many scenes

-Audio Quality [3 out of 5]

No problems

-Soundtrack: [2 out of 5]

Fair

-Musical Score: [3 out of 5]

Nicely done
