Comedy Action Of Mercy Johnson
When I saw big names like Jim Iyke, Mercy Johnson, Zubby Michael, Jide Kosoko, and Adedimeji Lateef in the Nollywood film Passport, I was ecstatic. If nothing else, I was expecting to see good acting, and they did not disappoint.
We’ll see if the good performance is enough to keep the movie-going.

Passport tells the story of Kobiko (Mercy Johnson), a tomboy from the neighborhood who aspired to run for local government chairman against Terminator (Zubby Michael). She is overlooked because she is a woman, but she is determined to become the next chairman because she is passionate about helping her community. Kobiko has an ill mother that she and her sister cannot afford to care for.

Oscar, who was hurrying out of Kobiko’s town to see his sick mother, becomes stranded when his uncle’s automobile develops a flat tire, forcing him to seek assistance from Kobiko’s sister and her friend.
Unfortunately for Oscar, Kobiko’s sister takes his luggage containing his passport and proceeds to sell it.
Oscar is compelled to seek assistance from Kobiko in order to recover the bag, and the drama is embedded in this hunt.
While I cannot say that the Nollywood film Passport has a brilliant storyline, I cannot deny that it was straightforward and nice. The writer was able to clearly convey his idea, and it wasn’t a horrible watch. There was, however, nothing to look up to. There were no highs and lows, suspense, or points of excitement. The plot was simply uninteresting. Given the story’s potential, the writer could have written a great work with a little more effort.
For some reason, the film lagged at the start and almost became irritating. Furthermore, it appeared as if they were shoving the comedy down our throats. Mercy Johnson, for example, may repeat a supposedly amusing dialogue three times as though she is trying to convey, “I am making a joke, oya, please laugh.”
For one thing, I applaud the director’s casting choices. He must have taken his time in choosing his actors, who were all excellent. Aside from that, the director of Passport accomplished nothing noteworthy in the film.
This film’s selling feature is its acting. I nearly didn’t mind the story’s blandness because the performances were so terrific. Other filmmakers must travel to wherever the director got Lina Idoko and fish actors there. She did great, and it would be wonderful to see her on TV more frequently. Also, I’d be astonished if Emeka Nwagborocha didn’t stammer in real life because he made it appear so convincing.
Mercy Johnson, Jim Iyke, Jide Kosoko, Zubby Michael, and Adedimeji Lateef also contributed to this film. I must say that I am impressed.
For ratings, it will get a 6/10.
