Hi🤭🤭🤭, welcome back to my blog. It’s a new week already 🙈🙈🙈. On today’s dose, I am doing a review of Coming 2 America, the sequel that was released on the 4th of March, 2021. The first one was released in 1988, when this sequel came up, I was skeptical about watching it, because I mean not every movie needs a sequel, except you indeed have a fully planned out follow-up story, with amazing production that will be more thrilling and amazing to watch. There is no point doing a sequel that will fall below the standards of the first one or make the avid lovers of the first one regret watching the new one.
Because I was skeptical, I took to my WhatsApp status to ask those who had watched, if it was a nice one for them and I got few responses which I will very much like to share here.
After the various reviews I got, I went ahead to watch it and to be honest, it was quite cool, more like a 30th year reunion which was okay to attend, but wouldn’t have been really necessary to attend. More like I don’t look forward to another reunion, even though this one was cool…that’s how I felt about it.
I also feel like, the first one will always be better loved and this sequel would have to be in the shadow of the previous one’s glory.
I wouldn’t lie, the costuming was really an amazing one, an award is well deserved for that.
But with the Nexdorian soldiers, and scenes that involved General Izzy’s son, I couldn’t help but feel these scenes were overstretched making it lose the funny vibe.
No doubt, it was a comic movie than it was intellectual. But General Izzy’s son though… I feel it was overstretched.
Wait.. the funeral for the king held while he was alive? really.. it felt so unrelatable. The cultural dances in the movie though, sort of reminded me of the different ethnic groups in Nigeria, I found this intriguing. Did the king really say “I’m going to die now” and his head bent forward.. feels like sth I see in Nigerian old school movies. Overall, I felt the acting was rather strained or forced, especially with king akeem.. but there’s no denying that I loved the twist on story, how the first daughter ended up as King was sweet.
I wasn’t done with Bopoto’s crown and appearance when I she said she will just be a wife? she kept saying whatever the prince wants is what she wants…that tore me🥺🥺🥺
she stood for an hour? what?… I’m happy the prince didn’t end up with her, please.
Basically, I watched this movie with a plain mind as possible. It was funny, and nice to be honest. I will rate it a 6 out of 10, to be honest.
If you haven’t watched it, you should. If you have, what are your thoughts about it. Please like, comment, share and subscribe. I pray that you remain in God and stay blessed this week and beyond.
