Tunnel’s selling point is its interesting themes; personal faith, marital infidelity, corruption, sickness and domestic abuse. Add cinematography, special effects, solid acting and a great soundtrack to the list. For a change, we see Nigerian celebrities in a movie (Waje Iruobe and Lepacious Bose) totally commit to their characters without relying on their ‘talent’. While we do hear Waje’s voice (church scene and soundtrack) it is her character Sade that sticks. Stanlee Ohikhuare pushes the envelope with creative lighting and shots. However, a final edit in the sound, lighting, subtitles and pace is required take this movie a notch higher.
