    the bank job

    Starring:
    Mike Ezuruonye
    Emma Ehumadu
    Empress Njamah
    Browny Igboegwu

    Directed by: Austin Faani
    Written by: Chuka Onuigbo

    Sequel to The Bank Job.

    In strike force, crux moves from temporary amnesia to permanent. He loses memory of his entire past and does not remember even his family. Caught and facing prosecution for his involvement in the robbery of the ? job he is offered a choice... To team up with an ambitious female government agent and his old girlfriend Lydia to recover some missing government documents that could alter the cause of the general elections if they fall into wrong hands. But unknown to them, their past still comes back to haunt them. A killer thought to be dead is sprung out from prison. His task, to get the documents at all cost. As they go head to head with ????e dangerous killer, they all realize that they are all pawns in a massive conspiracy. Together they must all fight for survival against a large organization of highly trained killers that haunt their every move...

    A great action piece. Well directed. The cast and crew were nothing short of professional. this film actually makes u sit up from beginning to the end. For an industry that produces tacky action flicks this is actually a revolution. Of note is the visual effects. It was nothing short of excellent. The effects looked like they came out of Hollywood movies. Sound and picture quality were exemplary. A must watch for everybody. Well not for children though.

    Lol at Totolos: "your father!"

    Good job, dreammagic! I like the gun shot effects and I think your next project should be a war film. My only problem is the music. I suggest you replace those copyright music with original or stock. I am waiting earnestly for VBoi's think on this. All said, I commend the huge ambitious effort, e no easy.

    Hey K try this link Strike and Bank

    Well done DreamMagic!! Feel free to copy this easier-to-watch link into your original link. I also had issues with the original; it's much lower resolution and only opened in a different programme. Thanks.


    I definitely want to see this. Yes some people might say it doesn't look like some of the 'slick' trailers we've been seeing but it's very different and looks like it has an interesting story; pure gritty realism!
    It definitely has a lot of camera angles & movement which in my book is a 5 star A+++++.

    Got to agree with RudeBoy - what was that rubbish trailer music? - I seriously hope it's not in the film - blast some yoruba talking drums all over that thing and get our hearts pumping even more!
    Even I am still laughing at "Your Fada" - that's so got to be one of the classic lines in the film (Second film - Bank Job??).

    Fair enough it's all 'stock' effects, editors will get better at blending them in properly as time goes on (the guy in white lying on the floor had a bit too much smoke coming out of his back) but really... who cares?; it looks so much fun that I think the audience will easily overlook such minor things and enjoy the action - I know I did; actually I was pleasantly surprised.

    Action is not as easy to make as we think. Normally I would say 101% for the effort but this tripped me so much I'm going to say 110% for effort.
    Recently we've been talking about films and different cameras and this shows it doesn't really matter what you shoot on - if the story seems interesting enough; we (the general audience) will swallow it hook, line & sinker. I'm hooked; I wanna see both of the films NOW!!!
    If you want to see a film that is pure 'action' possibly from minute one to the last minute this is the film to see!

    PS - @ DreamMagic - Are these films out for sale anywhere yet?

    Very poor trailer. Rat-ta-ta-tat...! They should put together a better one that says a little something about the storyline.

    Change the name to Shooting rounds. That is what it looks like from the trailer.

    The trailer has no class or style whatsoever. Very amateurish job. Here is a trailer showing a xter being shot in the back! A grave error in the art of making movie trailers.

    Oh come on, we're not known for making good action films. Don't slaughter them too much... just small bros!

    No excuses, bro. They've been in this business long enough to know their left from their right. If they were not sure how to make trailers for action thrillers, all they had to do was check out 1000s of hollywood trailers on utube to learn from. They only need internet access.

    Bad choice in music, too many shootings and nothing in the trailer tells me about the movie. Otherwise, I actually want to see this movie because the picture is appealing and the effects are something new. Like Vince said, look up some action films Mission Impossible comes to mind or Underworld, X-Men, Killer Elite, The Expendables, or Dangerous Men (by my newest favourite director Gugu E. Michaels. The key thing is:
    1. A short overview of the movie
    2. Gripping fight or shooting scenes.
    3. The "Your Fada" line is brilliant at the end. Include a witty line like that.

    Expendables: 'The Expendables' Trailer HD - YouTube
    Killer Elite: Killer Elite Trailer 2011 Official - YouTube
    Underworld: UnderworldMovie's Channel - YouTube
    Mission Impossible: Mission Impossible 4 - Ghost Protocol - Official Trailer - YouTube
    X-Men: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Trailer - YouTube
    Dangerous Men (Naija film): DANGEROUS MEN - Trailer 2 - YouTube
