Great without seeing original
IMO This is getting poor reviews being compared by those who saw the original first because its similar and the originality that surprised those watching the first movie is gone. Well I've not seen the first movie but this was surprisingly really good.
Also I'm a white middle aged male but not bigoted against strong black female lead characters that at least one reviewer seems to be threatened by. Olunike is perfect in the role.
Its low budget but has very high production values from what the studio and director have to play with. The gritty look is very appropriate and to be fair it's better than a lot of shiny stuff going around costing mega bucks.
Regards to what I'm talking about regarding production values the plot is simple but the story well written and doesn't fall in to cliche in the way it could. The characters aren't original but ate well written and acted.
I will watch the original and temper my expectations because if its as good as its sequel it'll still be good even though the surprise and originality is gone. Sometimes our expectations get too high then we are let down
I also hope there will be another sequel to further the world ending threat being set up.
