A good movie to watch.Recommended even for the family.
15 March 2012 | by (Nigeria) – See all my reviews

I love the confrontation of the female detective with the male detectives formerly on the case but got no clue.They tried to discourage her but she was determined to succeed. I love her style. she decided to take the bull by the horn when there was no help forth coming from detectives who were earlier on the case. From what may be considered by the ordinary eye as an insignificant piece of evidence in one of the last crime scene,she was able to make an in road into a case that was for other detectives an impenetrable virgin forest.A piece of doll became the master key that opened that blind alley that other detectives could not see.Who says persistence does not pay.It is interesting to note that the moment she had that close shave with the suspect, her sharp instincts told her that was her man. She maintained her cool and showed no excitement. The female dick for me was the star in the movie.The criminal thought he was a perfect criminal but he met a perfect Detective whose eyes were sharper than an eagle's. Sumary: A good crime series movie,that succeeded in exposing some of the very bad lukewarm attitude of the police in times when they should rise up to the challenges of duty calls.It is also informative in the sense that people should try and look beyond what they see and people they want to tag along with.The female folk should heed this warning as they are more vulnerable.
