Storyline

Based on true events. A set of everyday Nigerian travelers's board the last Flamingo Airways flight scheduled to fly from Lagos to Abuja on a fateful Friday night in 2006. The plane cruises at 30,000 feet, tranquil and on schedule. But like a bolt out of the blue, through a mixture of human error, technical failure and sheer bad luck, the plane rapidly develops major difficulties that sends it teetering on the brink of disaster. As the pilots fight with the controls of the stricken plane, a series of flashbacks unravel the twists, turns and leaps of fate that put each passenger on the fateful flight. Young lovers, an elderly couple, a corporate party, a sportsman on the threshold of greatness; all the passengers are caught up in the nightmare scenario and sense the final moments of their lives approach. All... except one! What does he know? Written by Anonymous

To say the obvious, Last flight to Abuja was said to be based on true event – as referring to the air mishaps in Nigeria.However, in comparison,the only thing that matched the tag "true events" was that there was a plane crash. All characters in the movie are fictitious. More so, of all the commercial plane mishaps that occurred in Nigeria, there hasn't been any report of survivors as all passengers died. This is greatly in contrast with the movie's finale, as there were survivors. Multiple if i may add, which is quite unrealistic for a commercial airline's crash.

Must I add that this is the first African movie to be shot within the confines of an aeroplane. Minus, the originality, a huge thumbs up to Obi for giving us something new. in Previous Nigerian movies, we only see planes taking off, or landing when a character wants to be buttressed as travelling or just arriving.lol

The CGI (computer generated imagery) was nearly okay i.e the outside view of the plane in the skies, but I feel it could have been better though – definitely calls for more research for 'future like' projects. It looked more like a cartoon most times and thought the focus would have just been best if stayed in the inside of the plane/cockpit rather than a fake plane and sky.

Conversations on-board went smoothly, usual jokes and chitchats. The script in that note was awesome. Also the side discussions – we all know Nigerian gossip, so it was good incorporating that too in the movie, like when the flight crew were arriving at the check-point, we could see a would be passenger saying jealously ' I hate pilots. Lol.

There wasn't any wasted scene in the movie. Each scene begat another and explained it hitherto. I think that's what kept the movie going. Wonderful performance from the cast especially Omotola, hakeem, jide kosoko and Iyke. This does not still mean we aren't yearning for new faces in more major roles in flicks.

However, simple flaws that were left unoted was the application of Ipads and Iphones and recent automobiles in a movie that was set in 2006.

Last flight to Abuja. A good but just another forgettable movie. Its still definitely worth the while.
