AFRICAN MOVIE REVIEWS (Ghana,Nigeria,SA,Kenya etc)
A True African Movie Addict and Critic with the greatest passion for nothing but the best African Movies. No Holds Barred Reviews where I-Tell-It-Like-It-Is(hence Ms Tilii).I believe in QUALITY movies NOT QUANTITY.(This Blog was born in 2008).
One sister (Melissa) intention is to fall in love while the other (Mildred) is seeking revenge at her identical twin sister due to her lack of not finding love. Without her sister knowing, Mildred pursued a relationship with Kobby, while he was not aware that she was a twin to Melissa whom he was in love with. Will he find out who he is really dating?
My simplest one sentence summary to the storyline: Identical Twins Sisters in love with same man - go figure.
The movie is good but not great - yet still watchable and somewhat interesting in some parts (esp. in Pt 3&4). Nice twist to the story line. I only wish they wouldnt let the music drown some of the scenes where it makes it hard to hear what was being said. Lawd knows i love me some Mercy but I just wish Mercy will not act in these ditsy airhead type roles (as she did esp in Pt 1&2). It doesnt suit her - she just doesnt seem realistic in those kinda roles. I just cant pinpoint it but i am not feeling it at all.
The movie was ok, but sometimes i got confused who is Melissa and who is Mildred. Slept half way thru the movie in Pt 1 & 2 and then continued when i woke up especially Pt 3&4 (Mike gave a "very good" performance - i must say).
Roaring Mike (Mike Ezerounye) didnt shout much - so u know thats a plus for me. I think dude toned down a notch on his shouting. He musta sort therapy and it worked for him, now I hope he passed on that business card to Tontoh Dikeh (let me not start on this girl and her acting lately - I liked her but lately her acting is so predictable and her "over-acting" to some characters she plays is to another level - she has become extremely predictable and almost borderline boring lately, but i will leave that comment for later cos she is not in this movie, i was just making reference). Mike Looks hella sexy when he tones down, like so scrumscious.
For one thing there were a few background songs in it by our ghana famous Kojo Antwi and i was quite surprised. I was like is that Kojo Antwi song i hear in the background. It was in Pt 3&4 that i actually realise the movie was shot in Ghana with a mostly ghanaian production team - a ghana / naija collab.
ps: My only advice for Mercy (as i notice in Pt 3&4) is if you are going to take off all your false nails, make sure you take them all off and not leave the one on your thumb on - it was irritating to watch. :lol: - Get ya mop ready to wipe Mercys tears off ya floor cos she does a whole river of it. Yall know Mercy dont play with her "effortless cry cry"
My Overall Rating:
There was no need to put the movie in 4 damn parts. Nollywood we beg u try and fit movies in just one part like "Keeping Faith" or "Letters to a Stranger"
