Jagun Jagun lays a precedent for what Nollywood producers should consider if they decide to produce an epic film.

Nigeria News, Nigeria Headlines

The Tope Adebayo and Adebayo Tijani co-directed film takes the execution of stunts, production designs, and acting performances to a whole new level, immersing viewers in a fictional world where they most likely don’t want to leave after two hours and fourteen minutes.

Another warrior, Wehinwo (Adeoye Adeyemi Elesho), goes against Ogunjimi’s command and gives food to the officials, leading to his death. News of his demise reaches home, infuriating his fiancee, who consults with a herbalist to kill Ogunjimi’s wife (Fathia Balogun). Diving into acting performances, many of the actors delivered. It is unsurprising, as the film contains many famous young and veteran actors. However, actors like Lateef Adedimeji shine bright as the protagonist, balancing the scale of a compassionate and fierce warrior. Femi Adebayo doesn’t miss the acting mark either, as he incites fear both in the minds of his characters and viewers.
