I really want to decimate this movie. Destroy it. Reduce it to rubble. I really want to go into a long and vicious rant about the filmmakers and everyone involved in it. Alas I fear I do not have enough talent, that no one has enough talent to express these words of vitriol. This movie straight up qualifies as my worse movie of 2014 and I have no doubt that nothing else I will watch this year will be as bad.

The plot is simply unthinkable. From its synopsis you go in expecting a tale of betrayal and suspense, it definitely raises a lot of interesting and engaging questions. Even the most basic storyteller cannot mess it up but they managed here. From implying rape-this so called virtuous man sleeps with women too drunk to consent then uses the I-could-not-help-myself defence and this seems to be his MO- to the illogical solution to the impractical and frankly stupid ending. It tries to be clever but fails to even meet the standard of bad. It is horrendous. Characters do the most stupid things that make no sense to any living person and then the film makers run circles trying to justify it. It engages in pseudo-science and conjures up a random ghost for no reason. Actions are taken with no consequence and no reason behind it. This plot and the characters are cringe worthy and embarrassing to watch. There was a, what I can only conclude was real, sex scene jammed in for no reason, overly long and too detailed.

There was nothing wrong with the main actors although I have lost my respect for Mona Lisa Chinda. How could she say some of the lines with a straight face, without getting embarrassed? How could any of the actors in this film? Chiamaka Nkokeukwu tried in some parts, she was good but in other parts she was terrible. I really don’t want to talk about Scot Brown, this is the first movie I have seen him in but it will forever follow him. Lydia Fewes/Eires-will these people ever get any name correct? – Makes an appearance and i must confess i may have lavished too much praise on her before.

On to the crux of what really made it bad. Plot could be forgiven, acting can be endured but there is no expertise shown on this film. The soundtrack and score were terrible, too loud, did not fit into the scene, was mismatched and grated on the ear. Camera work including editing was beyond bad, not even a novice will shoot a movie in this way. Instead of switching between shots or even staying in one angle, the filmmakers decided that it would be best to drop the scenes like a PowerPoint. Instead of a seamless transition that even ‘Igwe Tupac’-the lowest of the low –managed, it’s choppy and ridiculous. The effects are bad, pregnancy belly was at groin level, makeup not done properly but some few times it was actually impressive. Scenes went on for too long and special effects were at its nadir. It has only HD visuals.

In conclusion, I would only recommend this to my worst enemy. And I don’t hate anyone as much. Watch if you want to see why it niggles me so much otherwise if someone wants to watch it , never talk to them again because they hate you.

    And you call this a review? Little wonder you’ve got no visitors. The people whose name you’re trying to dent remain some of the fastest rising superstars in the industry. Monalisa Chinda for instance is a bestseller anyday, her works speak for her. The rest are very talented and most promising you can find around. Try harder next time.

      this site is nothing but a beefing ground for some failed media personnel. i m sure this idiot is beefing monalisa and hereby condemning the efforts of everyone who spent sleepless night trying to make things work. how can u rate someone’s job 0%? not even 2%…even if its a birthday cassette. you cant even encourage people whom you call your own. no wonder linda ikeji and the likes of others are doing well. you will definitely not go far. who is she anyway? is she a movie maker? did she study movie making? how does she know a good movie? animals like you should not cross a major road cos u ll get killed by keke marwa. see as she worwor like sacrifice. infact she cant be beefing monalisa cos she and her entire family cant measure up. i am sure someone paid her some penny to run her wide mouth.

    Amadinoes…if U ve a life put ur real names n critisize openly. Hiding ur names n ugly faces to critisize ur friends shows ur life does not count. After u ll still come n beg for roles. U re crashlanding ur career. These guys u re fighting dnt even know u. They dnt come to cheap sites like this even.
