So, Ella Chioma of Kemi Filani News finally saw the much talked about Sugar Rush, after it was restored back to the Cinemas and here is what we think about the movie.
We appreciate the fact that Sugar Rush boosts of Nollywood’s favourite couple, Adesua Etomi-Wellington and Bankole Wellington, as well as former Big Brother stars, Bisola Aiyeola and Tobi Bakre; and then Jide Kosoko, Omoni Oboli, Willams Uchemba, Bimbo Ademoye, Adedimeji Lateef, Toke Makinwa and Mawuli Gavor.
Directed by Kayode Kasum, Sugar Rush tells the story of the Sugar Sisters, Sola (Bisola Aiyeola), Susan (Adesua Etomi-Wellington) and Bola (Bimbo Ademoye) who accidentally stumbled upon a whopping $800,000 in cash and decided to keep it. Then hell was let loose!
The government’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the supposed owners of the money came after them, leading to the loss of the money to a different party in a series of very funny events.
Sugar Rush has uncommon story line, loads of comedy scenes, great delivery, applaudable picture quality, yet there was no depth to the much publicised movie.
However, it shows off different kinds of people in our present day society. The social media frenzy ladies that can do anything for the gram, the likes of Bola (Tobi Bakre) who only knows how to scheme and rob off anyone close to them, then feared villain like Anikulapo (Banky W).
No matter the efforts they had put into the production of this movie, the ending part didn’t do justice to it all; it spoiled it all.
The fire scene, the last battle of guns, the night to day drama were so fake that even a toddler would detect that it’s all effects and nothing extraordinary.
In conclusion, Sugar Rush can give you some sugar, make you laugh and unwind.
So grab your popcorn and a drink, sit gently and don’t expect anything more than that.
