Charming but incompetent
6 April 2020 | by akskypeSee all my reviews

If this movie is meant to be truly reflective of policing in Nigeria - then that is a worry as all police officers in the film were, whilst loveable, extremely incompetent.

Much of the movies focus is on ceremonial pomp with very little credible detective work or focus. The plot twists were also as mundane and predictable and were only bested by the poor quality of dialogue.

If you are going to have an english movie - make sure all of the characters can speak english please. Otherwise keep it in its original dialect and simply have subtitles.

My favourite character was also the most incompetent - Sergeant Afonja. A very likeable buffoon - I am never sure if that is what the director is going for or if its by complete accident.

In any case - i doubt he could solve a robbery even if the burglar handed themselves in.

Watch it but only for the beautiful countryside and nice people starring in it.
