I no get ya time!!
You mean this film is out?
Waoh! I'm wondering if I actually watched the same movie??? Guilty pleasure for me was very flat. Did not connect with the story and characters at all. The only scene that got my attention was the last two scenes with Nse and Ramsey. Also the scene Ramsey knocked out Majid...lol. Ramsey was really good in this scene.
I loved Nse to bits and praised her to high heavens in Reloaded (She was the best part of Reloaded, IMHO). However, she missed the road in interpreting this character. There was no depth and no nuanced portrayal like she achieved in Reloaded.
Majid was okay in some bits and just no magic in others. He's one to watch though, cos there are sparks of true talent in there. He'll learn a lot from Ramsey who seems to be getting better like old wine and developing this matured, sexy vibe as against the Loverboy nonsense of yester-years that just used to put me off. He is a man's man now. Me likes!
Omoni/Rukky/Mercy were wasted in this movie. Rukky wasn't as bad as usual but she's not winning an award anytime soon. Her fake eyelashes were so garish- a major distraction. Nse's contact was also off for me......I wish these characters would just braid their hair or leave it natural....Tired of seeing poorly done weave (If I can see the point where your hair stops and the weave starts...that's a good sign. They should all get the tel #s of Genny and Stella Damasus' hair dressers-most times these two get the hair thing right!
Back to the movie. The plot with Omoni-Her husband( Dude cannot act to save his soul) and Mercy was just so weak and even cannot hold as a subplot. They should have deleted that whole storyline and erased these characters and Nse/Ramsey/Majid's story would stand on its own.
Surprised it was Doris Simeon's spouse that directed this. Actually love his previous jobs but this one...errrrgh! There was something just so off about this movie. I wanted to love it but I just couldn't. I'm deleting it off my list of keepers. Saw some clipses of Omotola's Mind Game....definitely passing on that one. Still waiting to see Izu Ojukwu's Cindy's Notes and Secret Scandal starring the delectable Genny. I'm looking for 9ja movies that I'll connect with, no time for jaku jaku.....Rewatched Rising Sun and Warrior's Heart, both starring Genny and I still loved those movies even after so many years. I'm looking for rewatchable movies.....Any ideas????
Overall, I give it a 4.5/10.
This movie did nothing for me, splitting the story into two scattered my attention and it didn't help that the sub-plot and it's actors were clueless. And please what is wrong with Ramsey? The guy can't talk anymore? Abeg! And then that last scene, I felt like slapping somebody. Who wrote this script?
I watched it last night.zzzzzzzzzZzzzzzzzzzz
Maybe if I hadn't already watched the movie by reading this thread rolleyes it may have been better?
Anyway part 2 got a bit more interesting but Prt1 was a complete sleeper.
Nse's acting to me wasn't very good, her transitions between different emotions from scene to scene were sloppy(same problem I had with her in Reloaded). I actually thought she did better in Reloaded actually.
Ramsey was competent, Majid was all over the place and Mercy Johnson irritates me these days for no reason, I ff most of her scenes with that bobo and the annoying girl they cast as his wife, and never really got into that side of the flick.
There was something lacking as we moved from scene to scene.... For want of a better word I'd call it a lack of Cohesion as the story went by.It never quite came together, despite its "predictableness"(I mean even if you're not a brain surgeon it shouldn't take anyone 5 seconds to figure out what's gonna go down the minute Bobby lands in Naija!)
Score: 4.85/10 (2.85 for that Majid Nse kiss alone, that was effing hot!)
He always talks that way. I have never heard him speaking with the Nigerian thick accent.
Anyways I am getting used to it....I guess.
Naw ah...mba my sister, it was WORSE in this particular movie, he was really leaning into it more than usual...so emphatically that it was quite distracting. I know he was playing an uptight, aristocratic type character but mannnnnnnnn it was so much so that even my non Nigerian boyfriend was like "what's with this guy's accents...isn't this supposed to be a Nigerian film?"
