Title: The Cartel
Genre: Action Thriller
Starring: Mike Ezuruonye, John Njamah, Kevin Luclay Misoya, Martha Ankomah, Elizabeth Gupta-Chuwang
Director: Austin Faani
The Cartel is about a gang of drug dealers who stop at nothing to maintain their dominance as number one in town. When Denzel (Mike Ezuruonye) refuses to join, they gang rape his wife played by Martha Ankomah. It then becomes a do-or-die revenge affair for Denzel. The movie stars a diverse cast of African actors and excels in dealing with major societal issues. However, it suffers from poor cinematography. The plot is confusing and the flashbacks expose the flaws. The special effects are a big no-no! While Ezuruonye delivers, it is not enough to save the film. Below Average.
