Colorful and detailing but thrilling isn't the word
16 March 2016 | by supluxSee all my reviews

Women are the focal point and Lagos is just a beauty. One could watch the movie without blinking the eye starring at what never looks like Lagos, but still is. Funny and lively, one smiles dubiously even when you are being portrayed on screen as either one of the women or few of the guys or perhaps the parents. Pity, Hatred and repetition seem to surrounds the movie as seen in Lekki Bridge; and among the women whose connections wasn't detailed much. Bandele's work is evident and he is really making a world renowned brand with Nigerian stories. In general, Fifty is standard, beautiful and lively, it is expected to be thrilling at the end but the goose in my pimples didn't show off much but I was happy remembering few lines and scenes at the end.
