Naija rulez!, 26 February 2009
Author: p-stepien from United Kingdom

Jamie Meltzer has made one hell of a documentary. Can't really compare it on others touching the same subject, but one has to say that the timing was great and anyone interested in a home-grown African success story, then this is the place to start.

The movie is at times hilarious, but you can also feel it oozing with optimism about the future. Too often do we deal with negative issues and this is one of the bona fide positive tales on Africa out there.

This documentary really gets you hooked on Nollywood and straight after viewing this movie I was hopping mad that I didn't have a Izu Ojukwu or Tunde Kelani movie in hand to follow up on the subject.

Riveting stuff!
