Happy Sunday Lovelies, we’ve not had a movie review in a minute, did you miss the Sunday evening movie reviews as much as we did? What movies have you been watching? Anyways, have you seen “Passport”? I saw it this weekend, and it’s not all bad, it’s more of a feel good movie— nothing serious, just laugh a few times, and move on.
The storyline is about a rich guy Oscar, (played by Jim Iyke), whose mum was ill and he needed to travel to London to see her. However, his plans take an unexpected turn when his bag got stolen by street thugs. He finds himself teaming up with Kopiko, the street queen (played by Mercy Johnson Okojie), in an attempt to retrieve his belongings.
Not much really went on in this movie to be honest, and this isn’t me downplaying someone’s work, but I feel like it shouldn’t be on Netflix. The storyline was just there. It had this potential from the beginning, I didn’t know what to expect exactly, but I expected more.
“Passport” lacked depth and failed to captivate the viewers beyond a few moments of amusement. And the characters, though portrayed by talented actors, didn’t leave lasting impressions, I feel like they weren’t right for the roles. Well, except Zubby Micheal, that man has the thug role in the bag, it’s inbuilt.
Visually, the movie had its moments. The production quality was decent but it doesn’t manage to elevate the overall viewing experience that much. There was this teeny, tiny chemistry between Jim Iyke and Mercy Johnson Okojie, but the film didn’t provide enough room for their characters to develop and grow.
In conclusion, “Passport” is a movie that provides a light-hearted escape and a few moments of enjoyment. However, it falls short in terms of delivering a compelling storyline, well-developed characters, and originality. If you’re looking for a simple film to pass the time and have a few laughs, it might be worth a watch.
I’m rating the movie a 4.5/10, it’s not all bad, but not that great either. It’s available on Netflix if you’d like to see it, and you can check out the trailer here.
