Veronica (The Native Girl)
NR ReviewGenre: Comedy, Drama
POSITIVES:Mercy Johnson gives an amazing performance
NEGATIVE:Lost focus somewhere in there
The movie didn’t really end, they sort of just run out of film (I hope they don’t call that a conclusion) but on the off chance that it is, the movie is not entirely predictable.
-Story: [1 out of 5]
At first (aka in part 1 and 2) it had a clear obvious storyline, but as we progressed into part 3 and 4 the movie just seemed all over the place, no obvious storyline, things just seemed to happen. So either the movie has a part 5 and 6 (I hope not) or it was inconclusive
-Originality: [1 out of 5]
To a certain extent… Yes? Maybe! But not so much
-Predictability: [1 out of 5]
The movie didn’t really end, they sort of just run out of film (I hope they don’t call that a conclusion) but on the off chance that it is, the movie is not entirely predictable. But that’s not necessarily a good thing, it’s not predictable because nobody knows what is happening in the movie. Too much confusion
-Acting quality: [3 out of 5]
However, on a brighter note, the acting was a relief. That Mercy Johnson is just a character. I want to say that she must have been a villager in her previous life but you’ll recall that I’ve called her a tout in her previous life amongst many other things in previous reviews. Fact is, the babe is just too much.
Was ecstatic to see Yul as a n0n-prince in this movie (I think I took a separate 5 minutes to celebate that…lol). Yul is a good actor and was able to carry his role out convincingly.
Ifunanya Igwe gets better from movie to movie. There were definitely obvious signs of improvement in this movie, yet there is still room for more improvement. Angela Okorie does the thug role well but when it comes to emoting (whether real or feigned) she still needs help. Oma Nnadi! I have nothing but love for that lady, amazing actress. Yet to see her fall short. Was happy that Uchenna Nnanna was given a ‘different’ role in this movie and I thought she did it justice
-Setting: [2 out of 5]
Some of the locations were just tacky looking, to be honest. (especially that party scene)
-Costume/Make-Up: [2 out of 5]
That baby bump though?
-Props and Graphics: [3 out of 5]
-Video Quality: [3 out of 5]
-Audio Quality [2 out of 5]
A bit inconsistent
-Soundtrack: [3 out of 5]
-Musical Score: [3 out of 5]
