Gangs Of Lagos Review
The film Gang of Lagos depicted the reality of how political thugs and some uncivilized youths live on the mainland, collecting taxes, being used by political leaders, trafficking drugs, and always being violent in all their ways.
I liked how it started with the kids (OBALOLA, IFY, and GIFT ). The transformation from children to adults was thrilling, and the characters chosen were ideal for the film.
One should discuss the slang (omo aye kin je oju aye) and how they incorporated it.
Obalola’s mother also played a nice role in the film, giving us a real Nigerian mother vibe.
Let’s talk about Ninalowo, who aspired to be Eleniyan but was murdered by thugs. His part was also excellent in how he cared for OBALOLA, and the scene had a father-son feel to it.
We should not forget about the makeup in the film, which made all of the shooting scenes look so real; the make-up artist must be a professional, and they should be given a special award for it.
The cast Kazeem, who later became ELENIYAN, also played an important role in how he switched moods.
I began to enjoy the movie when Ify died, and I knew that trouble was on the way.
Also, the emotional pain on Obalola’s face as he sought vengeance for his father’s and friend’s deaths (ify), as well as his supposed father Ninalowo, who was killed, and the removal of all old rulers who had ruled them for a long time, was palpable.
I also love this part: how they were able to disguise themselves into the party in an eyo style for the celebration of Tajudeen Kamoru AKA LONDON, their entry should be given a 10/10, and how well the plan was executed.
People like Macaroni popularly known as DADDY WA, terrible known as KAMORU, people’s favorite YEMOLEE, ify popularly known as CHIKE, London popularly known as PASUMA and other underground cast members performed admirably in the movie set.
On a scale of 5, I’d give the movie a 4 because it was close to perfection in terms of makeup, cast, story line, attire, and locations.
It is unquestionably a must-see for everyone.
The film depicted some political leaders’ rules, how thugs were used against society, how rich people used their position to exert power over minorities, betrayal, kindness, true friendship, and love.
