The movie is a crime drama. It chronicles the adventures of an industrious young man who gets ruffled by the plot of an excessively optimistic startup CEO as he fights to accomplish his family and work-life balance.
The Man for the Job movie is a crime drama that follows the adventure and trials of Joseph (Uzor Arukwe), a hardworking young man who navigates his family and work life which folds up by the plot of an overly optimistic startup CEO.
It is set in modern Lagos where the fintech era is blooming and really gives insight into the life of crime and betrayal led by financial tech groups.
Joseph, a driver for a popular ride-hailing service, meets a beautiful tech guru like himself Zinnat (Temi Otedola) and offers to help her with a tech problem from work that has been plaguing her for a while.
He solves her issues only to find out his code was the foundation of this tech product and Zinnat works for a company he had once rejected.
Not much is clear at first but mysteriously, funds begin disappearing from customers' accounts and now they are plagued with a new dilemma and headache.
Who is stealing the money?
The storyline is intriguing as it probably is one we haven't quite gotten before. Unfortunately, it just suddenly falls below standard..
I believe the production team could have done better, especially with the wealth of talents at their disposal.
Ini Edo is grossly underused and she doesn’t quite show the diva aura we all know she possesses. Same for Uzor Arukwe.
The only two laudable cast members are Temi Otedola and Ali Baba; they naturally upped the game.
But if the foundation is destroyed what can the righteous do?
All in all, I quite enjoyed the scenery, costumes and cutting edge cinematography.
I'd recommend you all to watch, I can't wait to be proven wrong. Sincerely, I want to be proven wrong because I believe they did all they could and I'm only just being a grumpy know-it-all
