Storyline

A mafia leader's brother is captured in a shootout, prompting a revenge attack on the army camp. But when troop leader Captain Alex is killed during a raid, a violent war escalates between the two sides. The captain's brother takes matters into his own hands, while mafia henchmen take to the skies to bomb Kampala. Narrated with energy and wit by 'Video Joker' Emmie, ultra-low budget thriller Who Killed Captain Alex became an international viral sensation when its trailer first hit YouTube. Self-taught film-maker Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey produced, directed, shot, wrote and edited the film from his home in the slums of Uganda (a.k.a 'Wakaliwood') for under $200. Written by Phoenix Fry

Ugandan Bruce Lee, we call him Bruce U.
15 March 2017 | by anastasiasmarandiSee all my reviews

I have created an IMDb account just to review this movie. I don't even know where to start explaining the way in which this movie has touched and impressed me.

When watching it, you have to leave all your standards and expectations regarding cinematography behind because only then you can see it for the true masterpiece that it is. The whole context in which it was made adds to the beauty of it. The fighting scenes, especially the ones involving kung fu are, in my opinion, quite good even compared to Hollywood blockbusters. The acting doesn't even matter. The VJ, although I thought it would be rather annoying, turned out to be in fact really funny and exactly what this movie needed.

I applaud the whole cast and crew who produced with professionalism and dedication such a humble, hilarious and *action packed movie* on the lowest budget I have ever heard of.
