Though Frank has a lot of movies behind his belt - but the only one i liked to date and cared for was "Crime To Christ" which i watched In November 2007 starring Magid and i predicted this boy is going to go far - Majid is a method actor and he studied and literally became the character of Tony. After that movie i never really cared for any of Frank's movies including the infamous Beyonce - though amass love it - but hey! to each his own.
So Frank if you could write good movies like this why didnt you all this while and wasted people time with the Heart of Men, Beyonce and all that nonsense - come out the box and do something different - i hope this movie proves me wrong about you. I am glad you were able to tell this story prevalent in Africa and its many civil war nations and not just sit there for Hollywood to come tell the story and gain oscar awards and nominations for it like "King of Scotland" of "Blood Diamonds" did. WE OWN THESE STORIES (and these tragedies are nothing to be proud of) but am saying WE HAVE TO TELL THESE STORIES and am glad Frank you took a different route this 2011 in your production.
If you watching the trailer wondering whats with accent - well i dont know - I guess the movie is based on fiction or truth of a civil war torned country in some part of Africa where military overthrew government to take power. Ghana did have military overthrowing government once (JJ Rawlings) - and granted ppl vanished and died anonymously and mysteriously, but it never amounted to a civil war with such mass killings (Shedding blood or getting into wars is the last results for "MOST" Ghanaians and thus why we have never had a civil war ever!-we try to avoid war at all cost - We Cherish Peace, its like a recipe passed down from generation, and by Gods grace will do so forever! some have even called us cowards or timid cos of the "I dont want trouble attitude" we carry, but thats ok "We will be the last cowards standing - ALIVE!")
Am curious to learn more about this movie - whether its fiction or truth and if true based on which country's story. The accent i heard Majid, Eddie Nartey, Roselyn Ngissah speak were more of a southern or eastern african accent - I cant make it out. The town which Majid even named (FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF KIMPALA) is not any town in Ghana. Be warned that some parts of the movie may be too graphic for kids especially the killing parts - its extremely graphic, so dont watch with kids.
For ghanaian veteran actor like David Dontoh to say yes to this script and agree to work in it tells me a lot about what to look forward to in this movie, cos David does not say yes to just any script. Not at all. HE IS OUR ONE AND ONLY DAVID DONTOH - WELL ACCLAIMED AND VETERAN ACTOR GHANA HAS EVER PRODUCED.
