seems no Igbo people can talk without making everything tribalistic. why the hate for west again


this same Genevieve didn't enter stardom in that undeveloped five eastern states. she made it to the top in Lagos and she had never feel inferior about the great movie she made


Lionheart regardless is seen as Nigeria movie and she did a good work but that doesn't mean there won't be a critic in one handwork. not everyone will like your handwork


these yeebo should receive sense

Movie reviews are subjective so what's the fuss all about? A lot of igbo people always see everything through ethnic lenses and always squeal as victims. I'm sure Genevieve wouldn't see every review as hating like this director or whoever he is. She is far too sophisticated for that, I hope.

I haven't seen the movie but for Netflix to pay +$3m to someone in and from Nigeria is very inspiring. Let's stick with the positives.

Having completed my NYSC in the east, I would say a culture that discriminates against their kin and brands them as 'osu' has no moral ground to call out others for preferring their own (which they largely don't). Imagine the popular saying in Imo state 'if you had to dine with a snake or an Mbaise person, you should choose the snake.' Imo state sacked all non-imo ibos from their civil service, likewise Abia state. Now isnt it ironic that one of the most intolerant ethnic groups in the country are the ones that squeal as victims of discrimination the most while at the same time being the overwhelming beneficiaries of other ethnic groups' hospitality. Ibos are accommodated all around the country, plus they would rather migrate than remain in their extoled homelands, yet they don't and can't even live with one another and become suspicious of everybody.

You see people trying to discredit every good and wonderful thing from the other person just because of hate. Everybody (almost everybody) attack everything destructively. Hardly will you see a genuine constructive criticism.
Imagine people are down here attacking a film bought by a multi-billion dollar worldwide film streaming platform... And to even hear some say "Netflix is overrated" even sickens me the more... These are people who don't know the difference between a Netflix Original and other movies on Netflix. So since Netflix decided to come to Nollywood and to Genevieve Nnaji, Netflix is now overrated abi? In a certain Governors voice I say "This is Iberiberism of the highest order!"

With their myopic reviewing, they are forming over Sabi and "thinking" for Netflix cos they are wiser than Netflix and her Board of directors..., they have already concluded that #LionheartTheMovie has no story line... even when world renowned news platforms like CNN and BBC has talked about the movie and places it on the HIGH?
Some even say it's predictable but at the same time, keep ask in anger why Osuofia had to gate crash into a particular scene... OK, since you said it's predictable, why then didn't it happen your way probably the discussion should have been done in the open so that Osuofia can see them easily... But they forget that in real life, God can make u wander about just to meet your destiny helper in the least place that you can ever imagine? No nah! they can't see that because in their lives, everything is perfect! Nonsense! Like seriously it's very pathetic!

People are here (including all those greedy, wicked and jealous filmmakers) talking what I don't know but a whole New York Times has tagged this film the best from Nollywood.
It's very funny and indeed extremely pathetic!
One thing about this life is that you will always have people who will talk and gossip NONSENSE about your SENSE! But these people have never produced any thing that is overwhelming and that is if they have ever produced anything.
But the truth still remains that, #LionheartTheMovie by Genevieve Nnaji is still the best thing to happen to Nollywood and the entire African movie industry... It is a standard for other films and filmmakers in both Nollywood and Africa as a whole. It's a standard that they should all look up to for progress of they want to go global... (Although I am still a fan/activist of having a One Movie Industry in the whole of Africa and calling it Nollywood. Imagine the AMVCA's being an African Academy Award instead of just a viewers choice award?)

If I were all these filmmakers, I will throw away nonsense pride and go and genuinely congratulate Genevieve Nnaji and beg her to teach me and then I would bend down obediently and learn from her because:
1) She is the face of African Cinema, she is Nollywood's Sweetheart and now Nollywood's Lionheart! Lol!

2) She is global and there is absolutely nothing anybody can do about it.

3) Her movie and production/directing is global. You can rate it anyhow you want to rate it, it's your business and not that of Netflix, CNN, BBC, New York Times, etc. and

4) She has made Nollywood global!
These are facts!

You all have a nice day and let's all delete envy and jealously from our life and timeline! Because, e no day pay gan!

Sonsogo!!!

Please keep quiet!!...who is more tribalistic than you people??..always looking for ways to destroy people's livelihood and creation and over hype your own even if it is way below standards

I have personally read scathing criticisms from mostly Yorubas yet every Nigerian included Igbos embraced 'Weddimg Party' 1 and 2 by Mo Abudu with open arms....I know how i carried 'Wedding Party' on my head all over the place.

Tufia you people!!

The next thing is to cry 'Igbos are tribalistic'

Your comment is even more better than the hateful thread that I wasted my youthful time to read two passage, Nigeria and hatting attitude is like 2 and 3 that can't be divided, Igbo people are the enemy of themselves and I'm proud of them bcs they don't hide it. Lion heart my heart, rock and roll jor, for the first time in nollywood history someone brought the industry to world wide lime light and some people are full of hateres with their flatino head.

I keep on watching and rewatching LionHeart. Thank you Genevieve. There is something spectacular and endearing about that movie. Thank you for promoting Igbo culture. Your Chi is indeed alive. Please, do more of these. We indeed de your back.

It's one of the few movies I've watched twice. It tells our story differently. For the first time you dont see a brother who's trying to fight another brother to take over his business.

You dont see a family pressuring their daughter to get married. They just encourage her to be careful when it comes.

A movie that give you a glimpse into the business world, why we should drop tribalism, prejudice and sentiments if we must succeed.

It's a good movie. Simple but powerful. And it has many rooms for a sequel.

The movie cinematography is well on point, I applaud her for promoting the innoson vehicles, but the story was not solid enough, some scences were just not it, how will nkem owoh talk to an auditor like that, slap the bank MD. The story is lame with all due respect. She can do way better thou. A classic movie is October 1st.
