Storyline

Mark Unwin is one of four employees of Krielsen International oil company captured by militant group MEND whilst they are working in Nigeria. His wife Claire flies out with Alice Onuko, Nigerian-born, British-raised P.R. for Krielsen. When the women arrive in Port Harcourt they are told a ransom has been agreed - as is the norm since MEND depends on ransoms to fund itself. However when civil rights worker Keme, acting as go-between, escorts the women to the handover place they find only the corpses of Mark and his co-workers. Next day Claire meets a journalist who tells her the men were killed by the Nigerian government after their release by MEND and he is himself later found dead. She also learns that he was having an affair with Angel, a prostitute, whom she confronts but who is whisked away in a car before she can say anything. Alice is equally shocked to find that her father has made his money less than scrupulously from oil. Keme is jailed but Alice levers Tunde, the police ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Blood and Oil: Another shallow story about Africa
6 February 2013 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Another classic tale of made-for-White-audience movie. First of all, Writers and producers needs to get more insight knowledge about the country before they can make such a movie.

Good story, wonderful cast but there's too much focus on poverty, I guess this is what you find in all movies and documentaries made about Africa. What foreign oil company PR/Executives rides around town on bikes and canoes anyway? What about 1970s Jeep been driven around if they make billions of Dollars everyday? Extras acting like a robot as if they scared to speak? Do you know how many educated and wonderful actors and actresses in Nigeria who could play those roles better? Oil company and police almost ran people over on the street? There are many scenes that could have been done better? This is what they want the world to see about Africa.

Though, it portrays the corruption and government conspiracy, no doubt but why is there no response from the Government? Is Tunde Tayo the spokesperson for the government? That is totally ridiculous? Since when does Russian mafia started "oil bunkering"? NO! It is the British and Americans oil companies corrupting the nation and stealing billions barrels of oil from the Nigeria everyday to enrich their own country. Next time BBC wants to make another stupid documentary, get the facts, expose the truth behind the non-ending corruption and chaos their government is profiting from.

Where is the point of closure? Does the writer forgot the major parts in writing a story? Totally incomplete movie or documentary or whatever BBC calls it.
