Mike falls in love with a princess that he meets coincidentally at a hospital. He is there with the victim of a car accident. The victim of an accident that he caused, while the princess is there secretly donating blood. Mike makes it his mission to track her down and profess love, but then finds out that she is engaged to a known criminal and so sets out to expose him. It looks like the criminal is not the only obstacle that he has to contend with.
Part 1 was very slow. I gathered that Nonso, Desmond and Mike want to change the face of Nigeria and go into business buty not much else. There is a lot of scenes with them sitting around yarning in their dodgy American accents. Nonso’s was the WORST. So you went away for four years. How does that change your whole life’s accent? FAKE!
The character that was the criminal engaged to Biola was mightily annoying. He too had a dreadful American accent and was saying “nigga” all the time. It just was not believable to me this middle aged man exclaiming “nigga” every five minutes.
The whole blood story was clearly not even well thought about let alone researched. What kid of stupidness is it that the princess may die if she donates blood again within 24hours? The most that would happen is some faintness and if there really was such a large risk why would a doctor even take the blood? The other flimsy story was that the hit and run victim will die within an hour without blood. RUBBISH! How do you predict someone will die in an hour?
What kind of doctor is this that is breaking customer confidentiality so flagrantly after already stating that the lady who donated the blood would not want her identity to be known. I thought that was ridiculous. You are talking about confidentiality and how you are going to not break it and then in the next sentence you let a patient know that the woman that just left was the one that donated blood. Can you not see how easy it would be for him to run and chase the woman?
Why was the Princess going to a bar in full royal regalia and feather duster? OH MY! Nonso used to be my man but I don’t know what was up with those contact lenses. They made him look devilish.
Biola Ige is overacting instead of the more usual blank expressions I have grown accustomed to. We are also getting a lot of Rapid Eye Movement from her that make her look like she is paranoid or something, eyes darting all over the place.
I’m so sad for the state of Nollywood in this 2010. Crappy actors and crappy Movies like this make me lose the will to live. I got through 20 minutes of part 2 and I took this crap out. I just couldn’t make it to the end, it was pointless. Mike, Desmond and Nonso, MY BOYS! And MAMA G too! I was sure I was going to love this. Alas t’was not meant to be.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE. Watch it only if you don’t love your life. Absolute rubbish! Bin it or give it to someone who’s guts you can’t stand.
