Two strangers, one Passport. Everything is about to go as badly as you think it would.
The movie Passport does not deserve to be in a cinema or on any streaming service. It would have sufficed as a ten-minute YouTube skit. It was a total waste of time and energy. The plot is watery with holes and has barely any form of drama or conflict. Even the most pedestrian of comedy is missing from this movie.
Why is Jim Iyke still playing the role of a 30-year-old juvenile bachelor? His contemporaries are acting fathers and mothers of the bride and more appropriate roles. Mercy Johnson was unbelievable as a lout; she was not a good cast for the role. Every actor in the movie is either over-acting or under-acting, and the movie leaves you wondering what the point is.
Lateef Adedimeji was not needed in this movie. For an actor of his calibre and experience, playing a role just slightly above an extra in a movie does no good for his reputation.
Zubby Michael has become pigeonholed and stereotyped as a gangster, but with each movie he features, it appears his heart is not in the acting.
Movies need sponsors, which is why there is product placement, but product placements are artistically done to fit into the movie. In Passport, the actors hold the product and read out the jingle. This is not product placement. It is distasteful.
The cinematography is crisp but does not make up for the watery storyline or halfhearted acting. Even the new actors need to give a better report of themselves. Passport is a forgettable movie; you will save your time watching it.
