Personally, I have likened the art of making a movie to building a house. The idea of the kind of building, the purpose of the building, the design, gathering of funds, planning and the entire work team that is meant to bring the dream house to life. All these are also key necessities and process in making a movie. When one step is missing or not properly put into consideration, it can affect the totality of the building or the movie as likened.

Pandoras Box tells the story of a brokenhearted male, who meet a medical doctor who has everything going on for her and falls deeply in love with her but soon realises she is the link to his painful past as the pandora box opens.

The movie features the likes of Ik Ogbonna, Ufuoma Mcdermott, Onyi Alex, Timini Egbuson, Nini Mbonu amongst others.

The movie Pandoras Box, from the title, to the script, to the story line and the acting is a huge miss. It made me wonder if this movie snuck into the cinema or actually made it there because someone or some people thought it was a good idea. This movie went from A to W to F to C and to Z. It refused to add up or make sense, it just refused to!

The opening scene gave viewers the idea that there might be something to hope for. However, after the first few scenes, the makers of Pandoras Box decided it was time to freestyle the rest of the movie.

From scenes ending abruptly, to very poor acting, Pandoras box is indeed an eyesore. As a matter of fact, only Timini Egbuson had an interesting character and of course delivered well on the “baby boy” role. However, every other character in Pandoras Box seemed like they were rehearsing for a high school stage play and felt no need to put in effort or show skill of any kind. This of course was disappointing to see.

Meanwhile, one common trend in Nollywood is the overdependence of the female actors on make up. This to a very large extent makes the movie less realistic. The female characters having to sleep and wake up with make up, also when the makers of the movie are trying to paint a picture of sorrow, pain or mourning, the female character playing such role has no business with slaying with wigs or make up. It should be bareface to paint a true picture of dejection and pain. This of course was another miss in Pandoras Box.

I can categorically tell you that this movie is painfully sluggish and unrealistic. As a matter of fact, do not bother opening Pandoras Box because it bares no goodies.
