Speaking to journalists, Olu Jacobs, Nollywood actor gave his review of the movie.
“The movie is a very good movie. Let’s just forget the fact that we have seen the American version, let’s take it on its own. They have done a lot of work,” he said.
“I was given the impression that it was all blacks; well what America is trying to do is good. I want to know their motive of the CIA, they have a job to do, I want it more clearly spelled out. Are they for us or against us, tonight they are for us.
