Do not have high expectations. You've been warned.
Overall acting, C-. It was overdramatic and over the top.
Plot/Storyline: C. It deals with domestic violence and verbal abuse
(Side note) Bola had the worse wig, but her extra was hilarious until it wasn't.
Those wigs they had the actresses wear F.
Someone, please explain to me why their natural hair was not used. Those Dollar Tree wigs were too much. They looked well used, I mean at least get some new ones.
The leading male character has so much oil sheen in his hair that he looked like one of those old curly kit commercials. He was SoftSheen Carson.
I had to pause the movie to laugh. I mean that shine was a distraction and then some. I don't know who was hired for hair and makeup, but they need to be fired.
Now on to the review.
This movie dragged. I had to fast-forward. It did not flow. I'm no expert on filming but the camera angles sometimes were just odd. The way they would zoom in on certain products or people was weird.
I could not understand why the main character the wife kept leaving her child. When I tell you that they made that woman weak it was insulting. She cried through half the movie.
The character development was weak. I get why she left her husband, but what mother leaves their child. Is that part of Lagos culture? I don't know.
Then, y'all the hospital scene was just lame. I can't even explain it, you just have to see how they threw that together. I was offended. Lord knows the little girl was the only star in the movie. Why did they do that baby like that?
I get it's a low budget movie, but dude, do better. This child is supposed to need a blood transfusion and has trauma to the head and all you do is wrap her head up, place her on a twin bed, no blanket and she been there longer than a day. No one has attempted to find her parents, she has on the same clothes she had after being hit. When I tell you there was no scratch on her or her clothing I mean it. That was unrealistic.
I felt no connection to the characters. I was unmoved by the storyline.
I'm guessing the moral of the story was appreciate what you have because you'll miss it when it's gone. If you're bored, like I was, then watch it.
