NOT A BAD REVIEW

For “Blood Sisters”, I am sure there is a bad review or there are bad reviews but this is not one.

Released by EbonyLife Studios for Netflix on 5th of May 2022, “Blood Sisters” is already a hit. Since it’s release, Nigerians have been talking about it with all positives and it’s been on the list of Twitter trends for days now.

“Blood Sisters” is themed around Kola’s abuse on his wife and her self defense. The movie also talks about kidnapping, organ harvesting, bribery and drug abuse. This season takes us through when a groom-to-be is summoned by his bride and what follows: a trail of events that is definitely not a wedding. Blood Sisters is a movie that describes one of the many ways a woman could be wrongly blamed for being a victim of domestic violence, when the abuser is no where to be found.

In “Blood Sisters”, we see the Edo duo, Nancy Isime and Ini Dima Okojie killing their roles and emboding their characters. Kate Henshaw deserves all the saluting in the world. Always a pleasure to watch. Deyemi Okanlawon: When does he ever fail? The chemistry between Gabriel Afolayan and Kehinde Bankole is everything! I need to erase that mirror scene from my mind though. Etim Effiong will always be Etim Effiong! Ramsey Nouah may have not said a total of fifty words throughout the movie, but his face did the whole talking.

THE GOOD. THE BAD. THE UGLY.

The Good: Great acting. Beautiful plot and story. Great acting chemistry between the actors. I’m astounded at Gabriel and Kehinde, those two were hot. Beautiful costumes, make up and colours.

The Bad: Blade could have been less conspicuous as he was going to kill Kola, the role of Sarah’s mother played by Uche Jombo, whose acting skills are wonderful by the way, might have been played by a much more elderly woman. Her Igbo was also sounding off.

The Ugly: There is what I might call some inconsistencies and lapses with the story, like the good doctor and the lady with him. Were they accomplices? Also I don’t think there was a clear reason as to why Kola’s mother didn’t attend his funeral.

WHAT NEXT?

Some questions Season Two has to answer: Are Femi and Yinka dead? Are Kemi and Akin a couple? Did Timehin kill her mother? What becomes of Sarah and Kemi? In all, “Blood Sisters” is a great movie; you are guaranteed a great time watching and learning from it.
