If for anything, Banana Island Ghost gets kudos for its script; as a Nigerian movie having an actual story line and not just social media noise.
You can tell that the movie was made with obvious serious efforts displayed by the actors and most importantly the writers; in creating and bringing to life a “Nigerian Cinematic” project.
If I saw Banana Island Ghost the year it came out, and not 2019, I probably would have been impressed than I was over Chief Daddy!
I mean I don’t know.
But if watching it in 2019, still got my attention enough, in bits and pieces, if we take away the non existent chemistry between Chigul and the guy, and also take away the way too many annoying subtle (definitely not subtle) product displays and cringeworthy “sponsor” ads almost throughout the movie *eye roll* Lol, plus also take away the sort of cliché romance storyline;
Because you’d be left with laugh out loud comedic dialogues (Chigul is good abeg) visual/special effect scenes, efforts, and the Nigerian shadeeeee.
Like for instance, the part where Akah Nnani’s character (The Sergeant) wastes all the time in the world to assemble the police force, and of course how they get to the scene long after trouble has died down.
As per stereotypical Nigerian police force behaviour.
Plus the scenes between Tomiwa Edun and Dorcas Shola Fapson, they GOT IT!
Especially where they both had tummy troubles, because the ghost had spiked their drinks with plenty laxatives 😂😂😂.
Also the Ninja?
(Narrating the review like this just so you might be curiously tempted to go watch, to figure out what I’m saying)
Anyway, if you haven’t seen Banana Island Ghost, you should.
