AgbalagbaAwo:

The topic is misleading.
Ugezi Ugezi was talking about Nigerian reviewers in general - Igbo, Yoruba, Niger Delta etc.
Misleading headlines like this that pitch Igbos against Yorubas should be discouraged.
The author's post has no tribal colouration but nairaland has painted it with tribal colours

it is there srock in trade. They will always turn everything into tribe. Just imagine how the tried to tarnish peter Obi image. Did peter Obi say Osibanjo and Buhari to fail? Atiku chose him as running mate, all of a sudden hell was let loose. The rest of Nigerians has taken note of these sadistic bunch.

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.
Just see the trash you wrote, why won't he slap the bank MD when he's saying rubbish?

It is funny that someone takes movie critics as tribal... The same new York times the op is hailing has probably criticised movies the op thought was excellent. Besides articles are usually the perspective of an individual and not the view of the organisation (New York times)

That being said I watched the movie and I rated it a 5/10....which to me is a fair reflection of what I watched.....You can't bully anybody to call a spade a club..... If you enjoyed the movie good...if you didn't also good


Please rate it 0/10 if you like..

As you can see your Lagos reviews are as useless as a used tissue..Reviews from a shitty Third World country who cant feed itself......that one na review?

Bad-belle people.

it should be don't pay attention to critics directors from any part of the country stay focus, why single out Lagos as if they're the only one that will criticize the movie ?


he should stop making their kinsmen look subhuman and inferior to Lagos residents. that's the logic here

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!!!



blah blah blah "best in Africa"


Blah blah blah "face of Nollywood"

So, which movie is the "best in Hollywood" ?


Which actress is the face of Hollywood?




This madness is peculiar to Nigeria....


You can never see an American man making such ludicrous claims....Hollywood, for example, has different genres....There is comedy, horror, action, sci-fi, etc...You may be a fan of action thrillers and not horror films....So, nobody will say that Angelina Jolie is the face of Hollywood and others should go and learn acting from her, when the same Jolie can't act in comedy or horror films which many fans love...

but this Lion heart of a movie looks more an Igbo thing or something, since most of the cast are all igbos. undecided
It's rather inconsequential if the movie is "Sister Amaka" all casts and crew but appallingly when people are told not to review what they would put their monies on.. That's stupid!

No matter how good a movie is, it will always have negative reviews. IMDb rates lionheart at 5.4/10. I can't even find it on rotten tomatoes. Doesn't mean the movie is poor.

I just watched the movie on Netflix and I must say she really tried, it’s not the usual Nollywood movie we are used to , she was natural and she presented the real Nigeria we know and really that is what the international community would love to see

They were some mistakes in the movie. However, it still a good watch. I won’t compare Lionheart to Nollywood crappy production. I will compare it to Hollywood standard. Genevieve will only get better. Haters give her a break

Netflix doesn't rate neither guarantee acceptability. It only buys contents while the viewing audience rates its quality & acceptability.

Tell your people to review movies even books with an open heart.
On the other thread about the igbo guy who worked in Japan went on scholarship, go and look at what your evil tribalistic people commented.
Check the thread of the igbo guy who brought his white wife home to the east and see your people's comments especially winj3's comments.

Last year, immediately after the Hip Pop Awards, one of such Igbo OAPs of a little brain condemned the organisers and rallied his fellow bigoted igbos over what he referred to as a showing against the Igbo artistes in the industry, forgetting that Igbos had won the Next rated award in past occasions.
Igbos must learn to eliminate the defeatist mentality which has bedeviled their social integration for years now. Otherwise, they stand the danger of being further relegated down the rung.

Anyways i don't know exactly, but what i know is that after the release of Lionheart, it actually generated a lot of criticism, even I myself concluded it was trash without even watching due to what many movie reviewers said!!

You're absolutely right that Netflix does not rate nor guarantee acceptability, the viewers do, but Netflix doesn't accept any junk on their platform, any Netflix subscriber knows this. Movies aired on Netflix have to meet rigid standards of acceptability, and they as a corporation, just don't buy rights to a movie because they feel like it, they paid almost $4million because they felt it was a good movie and would certainly appeal to their audience. Just like Netflix Originals, if this movie succeeds on their platform, who knows, she would be invited to write African content for them.
