Moses Inwang's film is a gripping tale of survival that is well-told visually and story-wise. Thanks to believable performances from all involved, it leaves a lasting impression.

Adaobi Dibor, David Ezekiel, Jide Kene Achufusi, Sylvester Ekanem, Obinna Christian Okenwa, and Levi Chekere play youngsters who become hostages fighting for their very lives on a vessel manned by a dangerous crew.

Blood Vessel is compelling from the very start; the vibrant cinematography and the characters get your attention early on and draw you into this thriller.

The love story subplot works well and each character has their unique exploration but unfortunately, we barely get to see their backstories properly explored, except for the two leads.

The musical score haunts every scene and as things go from bad to worse, you are left asking yourself if anyone has any chance of making it to the very end.

What makes Blood Vessel work is how well the director juggles various themes while exploring a plot that gets darker at every turn. The character arc of the protagonist is well-written and the development is as natural as it is poignant.

The few faults here are the makeup and effects which could have been better, one or two action scenes that clearly sucked, and a villain that we barely didn't know or understand his motivations.

The standouts here, for me, are Adaobi Dibor and Jide Kene Achufusi. While her acting tugged at my heartstrings, his was simply phenomenal and scene-stealing.

I recommend this thriller for everyone who enjoys suspense, with a bit of romance thrown in the mix.
