Cringe worthy & Ignorant!
9 February 2020 | by lollygirl-58301See all my reviews

Here we go again with the ignorant stereotypes! Movies should educate and correct shabby narratives not enhance them!

Africa is a CONTINENT!!!!!!!! You don't hear "North America" or "South America" or "Europe" or "Asia" or "Australia", why not be specific?! In fact, even after they tried being specific by mentioning two countries, "Africa" still found its way out of their lips till the very end! Oh my! The Ignorance is indeed skin deep!

On another note, why in the name of all that's good was the main male character made to repeat the same attire? As though as an African, the closet space is lacking outfits? It was irritable to see!

Pssst..... This movie truly showed that there was no heart in it! It's as if the producers were forced to put something out! And sadly, this movie is another kind that nurtures the damning stereotypes many already resonate with! Smh.

Well, if anything, it lived up to its name... jacked!
