Today, I will be reviewing Banana Island Ghost which I watched on the 4th of August in the Cinema.
I have been anticipating this movie coming out so I had to watch it the day it premiered in cinemas. The most incredible thing about this movie is the graphics and how well they could depict the ghost and God scenes. It was so real and believable. This movie makes me proud to be associated with Nigeria because the growth of the Nollywood industry brings me so much joy.
This movie is definitely the best Nigerian visual and special effects movie ever.
The outstanding cast in B.I.G are: Chioma ‘Chigul’ Omeruah, Patrick Diabuah, Adetomiwa Edun, Saidi Balogun, Ali Nuhu, Uche Jombo, Bimbo Manuel, Akah Nnani, Damilola Adegbite, Kemi Lala Akindoju, Dorcas Sola Fapson, DJ Obi, Biola Alabi, Uche Nwaefuna, Tina Mba and Abimbola Ademoye.
My most outstanding characters are Ijeoma (Chioma ‘Chigul’ Omeruah), Ghost (Patrick Diabuah), Sergeant (Akah Nnani), God (Bimbo Manuel).
My favourite part of the movie was when some people where laughing at Ijeoma’s car and she wanted to fight. The ghost whispered in her eye that he had a better idea. Since no one else could see him except HER. He decided to enter the car and she acted like the car could obey voice commands. So he played a song, answered Ijeoma’s commands and opened the door for her. Everyone was amazed. The ghost was her guardian angel.
Kudos to B.I.G writer, BB Sasore. The story-line was sweet, relatable and relevant.
The cast of this movie brought their A game. I loved that the actors were from different genres (Yoruba actors, Hausa actors and English-speaking actors).
Ijeoma (Chigul) performance was excellent. I was really pitying her. I fell in love with the Ghost’s (Patrick) character. I love all the mischief he got up to. All I wanted to do was slap the Sergeant (Akah Nnani). He was so annoying and funny.
It was an afternoon well spent. I laughed and cried during the movie. Kudos to the entire B.I.G team.
