Dwindle (2021): Movie Review
Plot: After hijacking a car, two desperate friends find themselves on a perilous journey involving assassins, police, and a kidnapped governor.
Review: In Dwindle, two pals set out on a quest to make quick money, which leads to a string of catastrophic incidents.
Two female police officers, Tolani and Juliet are given the undercover mission of guarding the governor of Darkawa state.
Tolani is diverted from an abduction case while Juliet is released from her desk job.
They lose the governor right in front of them during a sequence of events that might have involved juju, and these two cops are now suspected of carrying out the kidnapping.
In a different scene, Chinedu is depicted as a young man who is experiencing a string of unfortunate events.
He has a pal named Buta, who only causes him problems. However, when they come across the abducted governor, their lives take a miraculously tragic turn.
HITS: The humor of the writing, which links these strangers with disparate needs and objectives in this star-studded performance, is what makes the movie so endearing.
FLOPS: The acts in Dwindle didn't feel well-balanced despite all reaching to the same conclusion as it unnecessarily stretched out.
