Storyline
The spark that graced their marriage seems elusive, with the couple barely seeing eye to eye. A desire to escape the unserinity that pertains in his home let to a blissful escapade, the unfortunate ignition for an unforeseen and protracted web of entanglement and blackmail. A tacit husband striving to salvage an almost fading marital union; a father grappling with the delicate health of his only child; a man desperate to unwind the twist that has befallen him...... (BTW: bare in mind most of these sypnosis aint my writing - i copy it as i see it straight from the box - :lol: )

My Review
I really dont have much to say bout this movie - usual Abdul Mumuni Hooplas. I dont like movies that insults my intelligence -"There was a lil mix up with the blood test" my ass. Whatever
.
Say Something Nice Challenge:
Though i really dont care for the script, Martha Ankomah was excellent in her role, she held it up real good and i hope that some better producer and director with a much better script get to work with her to make her shine more. I definately have my eye on Martha Ankomah - she is a force to be reckoned with (mehn martha can shout when she is pissed -ewuradiyesu).
.
Apart from Martha any other wanabee actress in this movie - i didnt even recognised - they just filled space - the regular pretty faces yet no talent types - just fake contacts lenses, fake lace front hair and the whole 9 yards and their chew and pour delivery of lines. No Talent whatsoever. No memorable acting by any of them. Martha was the only good actress to hold up such a luckluster script. Majid was good as usual. Artus Who?? - he was just ah ight - notthing to ride home about.
.
Tatalay - Talata ? - whatever Abdul - you and your non creative ways and wierd names you use in your movies. If the movie is ghanaian maybe you should learn to use ghanaian names sometimes - opps ma bad, you your self are not true blood ghanaian to be proud our names to use it. Who exactly are you - i am curious?
.
My Rating
5/10

Miss Tilli, just like you, am an avid african movie fanatic.Last night i was watching TEMPTATION,directed by Abdul and Frank....i won't lie, they did a good job with the Game and 4Play but not Temptation. Could you please tell this two people to work on their scripts, how can someone not know how to edit a movie?How can they say 'week' instead of 'weak', not to mention, the constant message about what temptation does was too much, give us a plain and simple movie and stop wasting time with all the messages on temptation which have a lot of spelling errors and don't make any sense.
Secondly, a movie that is 20 minutes long and produced in 3 part....how insane?Why don't they bundle up the movie into 1 and 2 parts and charge higher instead of giving us crappy part 3 movies that don't make any sense?
This is why i love Emem Isong, i think it is a high time Abdul and Frank get some lessons on movies and good scripts and good directions....
People have started ignoring movies produced by them even if they have a wonderful cast of Majid and Jackie,if he continues all this BS then we will be forced to stop buying his movies until he learns a lesson.
