Movie Review

Rush Hour: A Representation of a Hurried Story

It’s exactly what it sounds like, a rush of conflicting emotions and to an extent, the movie. Great film aligned with outstanding cinematography. We get to see, feel and experience the best of the stories portrayed in an interesting and engaging way.

The plot revolves mainly around “Rush hour” canteen and  Abuchi (Alex Ekubo), a shy, egoistical and tight-fisted Igbo businessman who is always interested in expanding his business. He somehow falls in love with Ronke (Sandra Okunzuwa), Daughter of the owner of “Rush hour” Canteen.

A go to site, known for good and tasty food. In love with her, he took Flora (Anita Joseph), his sister who connects him to ladies of interest. Not too long after connecting with Ronke, he finds she has a boyfriend (Christian Prince), whom she is determined to stay loyal to. He settled for giving her a job as a way to keep her close, and foster emotions.

Things got really messy as her boyfriend, Lekan, got the fame he needed but won’t seem to respect her privacy or what she wants. Amidst all this Chaos, she realizes she has developed feelings for Abuchi, throwing her in a bigger mess. Will she stay with Lekan despite having to put up with celebrity life, or will she go with Abuchi, her new found love?

The story has a good play and wonderful storyline merged with an ensemble of great and relatable characters. Iya Ronke, Played by Mercy Aigbe was well represented and a true African mom who won’t tolerate a lousy and seemingly unambitious fellow for an inlaw whilst staying in their lane. Ronke and Abuchi played by (Sandra Okunzuwa) and Alexx Ekubo both did an exceptionally good job.

Though, the role of Abuchi would have been so much better and more represented. The Igbo man Personality was a little too poorly portrayed and not indepthly felt in that a few characteristics were exaggerated or under felt. but overall, Alexx did a great job.  Also, the story of Lekan feels rushed. How he went from lost and rejected to famous lost us somewhere in between.

Directed and written by Dabby Chimere, the story represents a good inter-tribal and interesting piece whilst telling a great story of how what we want at the end of the day matters no matter how far you’ve come.

The crew did a great job at representing these roles and made the film more interesting.

We will give it a 2.8/5 rating.
