Just because the movie is shot in the US doesn't make it a Hollywood move. Hollywood movies are released by one of the big Hollywood studios. All the other movies are called independent films/movies. This is another independent film and it sounds like it will be a good one. I would have liked to have seen Genevieve or Jim Iyke in it als. Best of luck to the cast and crew.

Soooo, what makes this a Hollywood movie?
Plus I can't stand Nollywood movies shot in America.
They don't depict anything about our culture(accept for the accent)
and they try to hard to be like the people here in the west. It's dumb.

When someone actually transition to the real Hollywood please let us know. We are tired of the ignorance. You people only look s****d dubbing these movie Hollywood film when we all know that they are not. It's like to f*****h ones who went to France and talk about the were at the Cannes Film Festival. Please don't be so desperate, Hollywood can smell desperation from a million miles. They shun desperate people like these "celebrities" calling everything in the US, no wait in California "Hollywood. It's like calling Compton Hollywood. Ignorance abounds where desperation lives. STOP IT. PLEASE!!!!

The fact that a movie is produced and directed in Hollywood does not make it a Hollywood production. However, it doesn't matter, what matters is that we are getting there. The African film industry is unique and should not be named Hollywood because Hollywood will never want to be Africa. Why should we not be proud of our own identity? This film na Nollywood movie, whether they cast am for US or Niger, its still an African matter.

Most of us stopped watching 90% of Hollywood movies once Nollywood came of age a few years ago . Please keep our Nollywood strictly Nollywood . We don't want to start watching one actor hold a gun , ride a bike on top of every building in town and defeat the army of a whole nation alone . WE ARE TIRED OF HOLLYWOOD
