If you haven’t seen Brotherhood the movie, this is a sign for you to go watch it because it is superb and has no dull moments. Nollywood nowadays is doing the most with their acting, script writing and all. The movie was just like watching an American gangster movie. The effects and acting were superb. I think it is one of the best if not the best Nollywood action movies I have ever seen. I loved the fact that most of the formal BBN housemates cast in this movie brought magic into it. One thing about movies is how the cast portrays their characters and, in this movie, the cast did not come to play I loved how the gunshots and the gun wounds were portrayed so real, no insults to Nollywood but we all knew when it comes to action movies, shooting of guns and the rest Nollywood is lacking so much but damn the effects in this movie was too good. I am tempted to give spoilers but let me allow you guys to enjoy the suspense.
The cinematography was also very good; I loved how Lagos was portrayed in the movie. I have to give the writers, producer and director their flowers they came up with a very strong and livid picture and story. I remembered when daylight robbery was a thing back in the day, there was no better way of saying the stories as it was told in Brotherhood. Wale and Akin had this rivalry just the way most twins or siblings do, and it was so real. Tobi really did portray the act of a gangster very well, I felt Falz was finding it difficult because he couldn’t use his signature accent, Toni Tones has been my favourite right from time because of how well she bodies her roles, OC Ukege was really not in his lover boy mood in this movie and I liked that, I enjoyed the badass OC, Mr Macaroni I never thought he will act a movie he wasn’t throwing jokes up and down, trust Zubby Michael to always be Zubby.
I will rate Brotherhood a 9/10.
