Low quality for Such a High Budget
11 October 2018 | by Thugs_crySee all my reviews

I heard they spent millions of $$$ to do this movie and I am wondering fo rwhat. From the story line to the characters,this movie didn't just have that drive. You could even sense that some parts claimed to be Nigeria weren't Nigeria. Also, I am wondering what the movie was trying to depict? Nigeria's authoritarian rule ended more than 20 years ago. The Niger Delta is redeveloping so what reallyis this movie trying to pass? So much budget. Low Quality
