review by
Mike Haberfelner

Nigerian Air Force ace pilot Nura Yusuf (Enyinna Nwigwe) couldn't be happier - his wife has just told him she's pregnant, and his preent tour is just about to end so he can come home to spend as much time as she needs. And then, during his last mission his fighter jet goes down behind enemy lines for technical reasons, and though while he can safe himself, there's no chance for the rescue team to come for him. He hides in a village the local insurgents have not yet taken - and frankly it takes them some time to agree to give them shelter. But before long, the leader of the insurgence, General Korinjo (Uzee Usman) finds out where Nura must hiding and he and his footsoldiers move into the village to capture and make him a pawn in their game, and while most of the village manage to go into hiding, the insurgents capture one local, Amina (Jamila Ibrahim), and threaten to shoot her shouldn't Nura give himself up. One of the General's most trusted man, Baku (Abdul U. Zada), manages to get his hands on Nura, but lets him go and causes the General and his men to hastily leave under a pretense - but they take Amina prisoner. Shortly thereafter, a rescue mission for Nura arrives - too late as Nura's already rescued. But Nura persuades his rescuers and his superiors to go and rescue Amina and Baku, actually a good boy forced into submission by the General. But that mission might prove even more of a challenge as the insurgents don't even shy away from using their captives as human shields ...

 

Now first of all, yes, this is a propaganda movie - and shouldn't even surprise one as the Nigerian Air Force has helped producing it. But that said, leaving all the politics aside, the movie manages to tell a rather compelling story and rather than just going for straight heroics takes some cues from films like Saving Private Ryan or Black Hawk Down and allows a few dark tones along with the light. And it also profits from a rather gritty approach, some very decent but not over-the-top action work and a sense of action to bring its story across rather nicely and make this two hours of pretty nice genre entertainment.
