Chief Daddy 2 - Going for Broke movie review

Chief Daddy 2 Review

At the conclusion of the original Chief Daddy movie, the introduction of a new character in the last scene hinted at a sequel, but Chief Daddy 2 takes the sophomore curse to a new level of low.  

The movie’s opening is jarring. There is no backstory for Laila’s appearance, and we still don’t know her story till the movie concludes. The movie is a jumble of scenes with absolutely no connection. Even skits have better plots and storylines. The actors look amused, more like they are in on some inside joke they are playing on the viewers. You keep hoping it gets better; instead it gets progressively worse.

Chief Daddy 1 has a weak plot, but some serious laughter that makes up for the poor story. This second coming  has zero plot and no laughter at all; it is  a painful experience watching this movie. The acting feels like the actors have multiple cameo appearances with no connections.

The movie script cannot pass for a high school amateur production. There are no memorable lines or dialogue, and some of the sub-plots make you wonder what the team was thinking of writing such into the movie.

Many times when a movie lacks plot and good acting, it would have some redeeming qualities, but Chief Daddy 2 has none. Not even the music offers any hope. The cinematography is pedestrian, and most of the costumes are ill-fitting, and do not showcase any wealth or culture.

The most hard-working non-paid Nollywood actor, the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge makes an appearance, but one would expect a better showcase of scenery, both in Lagos and Dubai, locations for the movie. Chief Daddy 2 is a really poor movie that should be pulled down and discarded completely. 

NollyRated Score: 1/5 (Poor Movie). It gets a 1 over 5, because we have nothing lower to assign.

  1. Please , you have to give us something lower than 0. Please. Maybe you can use words. I cant get back my Data or time. It hurts.

  2. My family and I actually bought a new mifi to watch this on new years day and it was a waste of time and energy (to sit and watch..)
    I hated it and did not expect this .. the actors are actually good but the plot and storyline is wack….
    I loved the first one, way way better…😶😪
