Bevy of Nollywood Stars get RELOADEDPosted on Tuesday, March 31st, 2009 at 12:09 AM
This movie is not all about the hype. We’ve seen it and trust us, it more than lives up to its name. Nollywood is a crazy industry considering the number of movies that are churned out each week, often times quality is compromised. Reloaded is a new movie by celebrated Nollywood producer Emem Isong and multi-talented Nollywood actor/producer Desmond Elliot. The movie stars Rita Dominic, Ini Edo, Ramsey Noah, Van Vicker, Stephanie Okereke, Nse Ikpe Etim, Uche Jombo, Desmond Elliot, Monalisa Chinda Dejo-Richards & Mbong Amata.
The movie comes on the heels of the very popular ‘Games Men Play’ and uses the same narrative style (This time Rita Dominic is the narrator) that runs through the movie. It explores similar themes as many Nollywood movies – infidelity etc.. but it is utterly believeable and has enough plot twists to keep the viewer engaged. The performances were totally spot-on as well. We have renewed respect for the Nollywood veterens featured in the movie and were glad to see a few breakout stars especially Nse Ikpe Etim (as Ramsey Noah’s charater’s Femi Wellington’s wife – Omoze) and Mbong Amata. Overall, a very interesting movie! Very well deserving of the AMAA nominations that the movie scooped. Check out the trailer below and be sure to grab your copy!
