NR ReviewGenre: Drama, Suspense
POSITIVES:I didn't see the end coming. You might. But I didn't
NEGATIVES:The production quality was sub-standard
All Yoruba movies are comedies. If that wasn’t the intended genre, then the subtitles make them so.
-Story: [3 out of 5]
In the beginning, I didn’t think the movie was so hot. It didn’t seem like all that at all. The continuity, progression, the storyline I was building up in my head to make it all cohesive, nothing made that much sense. I couldn’t understand why there was so much hype surrounding the movie. But when the movie ends and you have that ‘aha’ moment, it all comes together.
-Originality: [3 out of 5]
Now, it’s not that fascinating at all to be honest. It’s not like it’s anything Nollywood hasn’t seen before. But then again, that is ‘nollywood’ and apparently yollywood (the yoruba movie industry) is a whole other ball game.
-Predictability: [4 out of 5]
Ok! I honestly didn’t see the end coming, not for this movie at least (if it was a Patience Ozokwor film then… ehen, I would have guessed it). I suspected everyone but the actual culprit so well done for detracting attention from the actual culprit through the movie.

I found the Yoruba Yul Edochie!!! In the person of Odunlade Adekola – and if you think they look nothing alike then please go and hug a transformer :). Lol but back to the matter, I was really impressed by some of the actors in this Yoruba flick especially the lady that plays the sailor’s mother and, my Yoruba Yul Edochie, Mr. Adekola. Other people in this movie were able to hold their own well enough. But those two were definitely the standouts in my opinion
-Setting: [1.5 out of 5]
Didn’t like most of the sets. They looked cheap. They looked scanty. All in all they all looked too unreal
