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

Captain Alex
24 February 2017 | by sambass-31702See all my reviews

This movie has so much heart, and it is amazing to see people in such a dangerous, sad country spend time to make this. Sure, it's not a AAA movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, but it is amazing for what it is. Look at this as a project for someone who has a passion for movies, but has the misfortune to not to make the best. This movie is hilarious, action- packed, and just great. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants a good laugh. This movie is a good inspiration for anyone who just wants to make a movie.
