    Starring Desmond Elliot, Uche Jombo, Monalisa Chinda, Nse Ikpe Etim etc
    Directed by Desmond Eliot

    I decided to give another Royal Arts Academy movie a try...bad mistake...this is probably the worst movie they have produced...Same old relationship story that had me confused most of the time..mainly because of the very poor sound quality. For some reason the director used Lavaliere(lapel) mics for some of the scenes, where one character would be miked and the others where not. There was even a scene where a a character was walking with the microphone transmiter hanging out his back pocket.
    Nollywood..nah by force to make movie? They don almost kill the industry...

    I usually yab Desmond and as much as I try not to, the man keeps falling into the yab zone. I like him because I have read that he is humble. His acting is one kine, his directing sef..make I no talk. But, I have hopes for him, if he takes some more classes. Abeg, biko jor some more classes in both fields. My ears are the one pleading now.

    Moviemakers of this level can never kill the industry but rather "kill" themselves by putting themselves out of business. Desmond Elliot is not considered as a high level director big enough to kill the industry. There are much better filmmakers that will replace him to keep the wagon rolling , but at a higher level.
    Viva evolution!

    That's always the norm with Nollywood movies.
