Depressingly Boring and Pointless
29 April 2019 | by Thugs_crySee all my reviews

There was a time Nigerian movies did engage you. Now its getting worse. Its like someone just comes up with a different story and tries to force it on everyone by using top actors. At the end, the movie fails in every way. The director needs a reorientation.
