REVIEWER: SUNNY-OKUNDIA ATINUKE AYEMABAMIJE- 15BE02317
This movie centers around how youths in hood try to fight their way through poverty, JUST NOT MARRIED centers around duke(stan eze) whose mother is sick and he has a brother who is an ex convict; he got into the “dirty business “because he could not afford medications for his ill mother , he then invited two of his long time friends lati( rotimi salami) and keji(Judith audu) to join him in stealing cars and posing as newly wedded in the cars to avoid trouble from police. At first the business went well for every one of them until some of them got reedy and they met the wrong business partner and everything exploded before their own very eyes.
ELEMENTS OF PRODUCTION
Sound effect: the sound effect really worked with the movie and the scene which they were used.
EXTREME LONG SHOT
EXTREME CLOSEUP SHOT
The movie from the beginning to the end was almost perfect because the actors were able to depict what youths go through, the hustle they go through just to live a comfortable life even the educated one.although some of the scenes were really too long but it was not noticeable because the actors really played their part well and it was worth it.
The movie shows us a lot of things that are happening in our society,even when they deceived the police men they met on the way. They showed us what is really happening in our country. This movie should be watched by all because it has shown us that even up and coming stars can act so well and would make us want more.
I would say that the gown which the girl used would have actually made it easy for them to have been caught because in a real setting no police man would take someone wearing a short wedding gown serious; infact nobody would take someone wearing a short wedding gown serious because it is not what they are used to.
Factual error: the factual error in the movie was actually when they got more than 10 cars in a day that is really not possible; going with the process of getting the cars, it would be really difficult for them to get up to 10 cars in a day.
some things that were in the movie, in a real setting they would not happen or they wont be allowed.
Favorite quote: “nothing changes here”
CONCLUSION: this movie really bortrayed how youths hustle in Nigeria, even the educated ones. They have the impression that in Nigeria you have to know someone somewhere in order to get to where they are.eg getting a good job, its not by merits anymore but by knowing someone there.
