For the Newbies, the KFB movie review is an every Friday column that gives you a cinema guide on which movies to watch and not watch!
Today’s other movie review is done by CinemaPointer.com
Synopsis: A wealthy Nigerian accidentally proposes to his British girlfriend and has to deal with objections from both families and the hilarious cross-cultural consequences.
Verdict: ‘The Wedding Party 2’ screams spotless quality! Stellar production makes it most definitely one of the best produced movies we have ever seen come out of Nollywood. Bravo! Unfortunately however, that’s as far as the Magic goes. ‘The Wedding Party 2’ is Superb quality for an average offering as “2” fails to live up to the majestic legacy of “1”.
Sad? Thankfully not! ‘The Wedding Party 2’ isn’t anywhere near bad. Yes, lightning does strike twice, but unlike the first, this Wedding Party comes lacking the breath of fire! Like a silent display of fireworks, it’s all splashes of colour, absent any memorable vibrations- Beautiful to watch, but no explosions.
Consequently when it ends, you won’t leave feeling elevated. But you won’t leave feeling dejected either. Seeing the credits start rolling, you will be like- “What? That’s all?” Leaving you with an after taste of- “Not half as good as I expected. But well, they tried sha.” And indeed, they really did try.
But the original ‘Wedding Party’ was just too good to be beaten. Where that one was a Masterpiece, this one is a wannabe. Truthfully, they tried really hard to impress. Maybe even a little too much; causing it to feel forceful and obvious. When it ought to have been soft and silky. It’s “Fun”, but not “Hilarious!” You will enjoy it. But you won’t fall in love with it.
Definitely recommended. But there’s no need to rush. This Wedding Party is not that hot.
PS: Look out for three encores hidden in the credit roll.
