    I dont know if Desmond went back to school to study it, cos the movie i watched “bursting out” was not nice at all, the story line was really a crap.
    I hope this time around it will be a very nice movie as it looks.

    This is actually a Sierra Leonean movie and I would not be surprised if the actors are all members of the same family in real life, given that they all seem to bear the same surname. Desmond Elliot is the only Nigerian actor in the movie but I guess they used him because he is so well known. I wish Desmond could choose his movies with a bit more care!

      This is a collabo between Sierra leone and Nigeria. And names are the cast names of the actors not their real names. Its better to wait for the film to come out before you form your opinions.
