I remember watching one of the meme films, Bad Black
, and jokes aside i was surprised how "decent" the plot was and it was alarmingly well executed too, budget and set conditions considered.
Some overused action genre cliches are there along with the gaudy cheap CGI but the director still managed to pull interesting dynamics regarding the main protagonist's emotional progression from slum orphan to ruthless bad bitch (hence the film's title), not to mention a harsh critique on Africa in general with tongue in cheek jokes and plot points (kids used as sex toys, a hammer being called an Ugandan Key).
Although somewhat of a weak ending part due to it being so prolonged/dragged out i suppose, great
is not really what i would call this movie but there's obvious amounts of efforts and creativity (stuntmanship, prop item construction) that wager a bit of genuine praise out of the usual pity brownie points some african movies usually get. Hong Kong this ain't but it is more entertaining than a contemporary action movie without the expensive CGI tricks.
