Excerpt

Nobody in this bloody movie can act, let the truth be told. Originally, I was trying to make excuses “hey that guy can act a little bit if only he’d do this and that” “Tonto is not so bad in this she just needs more to work with” “Maybe if Alexx had done this or that” No! Nobody can act in this bloody movie.

Review

-Story: [0.5 out of 5]

Chei! This movie is on a one way trip to the land of utter foolishness. Wait! What am I saying? It has already arrived. We should just call this thing a comedy because y’all could not have been serious about those 2 hours…. WHAT? What kind of a sick mind looks at this thing and says? “Yes now the movie is ready”. I really can’t stop laughing and that is only because I’m tired of giving myself headache questioning the ridiculousness of it all

okay the first scene in this movie was terrible.. not sure I wanna watch the entire thing.. why are they still playing “here comes the bride” when she’s already there? – iRokoTv Comment

-Originality: [0.5 out of 5]

No… no… no… I don’t know if it would have been easier to endure if it wasn’t so unoriginal. But it was unoriginal! So the lack of originality of the entire thing just served to compound my aggravation

-Predictability: [0 out of 5]

What else do you think is going to happen in this movie honestly

-Directing/Editing: [1.5 out of 5]
There was an actual attempt at good cinematography in the movie but when a movie has no direction there is little to nothing a camera man can do to salvage the situation.

-Acting quality: [0 out of 5]

Nobody in this bloody movie can act, let the truth be told. Originally, I was trying to make excuses “hey that guy can act a little bit if only he’d do this and that” “Tonto is not so bad in this she just needs more to work with” “Maybe if Alexx had done this or that” No! Nobody can act in this bloody movie.

It’s torturous. It really is. And after a certain point, after seeing so much ridiculousness, it’s almost as if your brain reaches its peak of foolishness for one day so it starts converting into humor. And you begin to think that the movie is a comedy.

And that girl with the useless accent? Where did they pick you from?

-Setting: [3 out of 5]

I actually liked the sets. Something that was done right at least

-Costume/Make-Up: [3.5 out of 5]

Liked most of Rukky’s attires

-Props and Graphics: [3 out of 5]

Fair

-Video Quality: [2 out of 5]

Zooms in and out of focus. Blurry at some times. Clear at others. I’m actually beginning to feel like this is a fault of irokotv.com not of the individual movies

-Audio Quality [0.5 out of 5]

Very very inconsistent

-Soundtrack: [1.5 out of 5]

Used a bunch of wizkid songs.

-Musical Score: [1 out of 5]

Some blank spaces but fair enough

    ROTFLOVVVVL.

    As I watched this movie I kept saying to myself “NR is going to be sooooo mad”. I really enjoyed the movie simply because of how I imagined you will react to it.

    But we needed to have asked ourselves this: Looking at the lineup, what did we really expect? And then Rukky Sanda, Director?????!!!!!!

    And that wedding gown? Epic Fail. Brought Costume/Make-up down to a ZERO.

      Haha I don’t know o. Many people have asked me what I expected but I started this movie with an open mind.

      Barely half way into the movie, however, that open mind was glued shut by the ridiculousness of it all

    Wow that is a brutal review. I haven’t watched the movie. When u said Originality zero, it brought me back to Rukky’s first movie”Lethal woman” or something. It was a failed attempt of remaking A THIN LINE BETWEEN LOVE& HATE. She just copied everything from that movie. At least Martin Lawrence made us laugh in the Original movie.

      Lol yeeesssss, someone else made mention of that haha. Fortunately for me, I haven’t seen the said movie (and will probably never see it now).

      Maybe I was being a bit harsh, I guess you can argue originality for this movie cos it wasn’t straight from the script of something else

    I’ll rather watch the other movie that came out together with this one. The whole adultery, older husband ish has been overdone. I haven’t watched her movies as an actress, will give her one try as director. If I use this review, that might be it.

      The Search by Rukky Sanda? Or the other irokotv movie? I don’t think either would be any better (but then again, I don’t see how they could be worse).

      Hehe trust me Myne, she is not so good at any of both roles

      She acted in The Return of Jenifa as the leader of those bobo big girls, the one that was holding one puppy like that. Rukky Sanda she try small in her movies sha but they are both filled with only beautiful people who can not act.

      Hey Loretta,

      “The Search” you watched on myafricanclips (or any movie you watch there for that matter) is illegal. In fact, very very illegal. There is nothing legal about myafricanclips. The only legal place to watch the search online is on irokotv.

      Movies on sites other than irokotv and a select amount of YouTube channels (like nollywoodlove, blackspeechmedia and realnollymovies), are extremely ILLEGAL.

        Really? Its also on this site ogamadamtv.com and this is a new legal site, at least that’s what I was told when I watched IJE there. I chatted with one of their representatives and was told that just like IROKOTV, they would soon start paid subscription for new movies but that they get the copyright legally for all the movies currently there.

            Oh thank you for informing me. I re-read your comment again and realized that you actually didn’t mean that Nollywoodlove was illegal but that you were saying all the listed sites in bracket are legal. I wonder why I was told Ogamadamtv is legal by their own personnel. Anyway I guess that’s how some people are. I’ll stick to the legal sites as much as I can now that I have been better informed.
