A mafia leader's brother is captured in a shootout, prompting a revenge attack on the army camp. But when troop leader Captain Alex is killed during a raid, a violent war escalates between the two sides. The captain's brother takes matters into his own hands, while mafia henchmen take to the skies to bomb Kampala. Narrated with energy and wit by 'Video Joker' Emmie, ultra-low budget thriller Who Killed Captain Alex became an international viral sensation when its trailer first hit YouTube. Self-taught film-maker Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey produced, directed, shot, wrote and edited the film from his home in the slums of Uganda (a.k.a 'Wakaliwood') for under $200. Written by Phoenix Fry

7 January 2016 | by bill_scollopsSee all my reviews

The only film I have ever seen with a video MC keeping the excitement levels up. It was the video equivalent of a classic drum and bass track. The acting was not important. The storyline might have been important, but the MC kept shouting over the top. This may have changed it from a drama filled action flick to a more comedic action movie, but maybe that is the point. It was made on a shoestring budget so the props and special effects are pretty poor, but this adds to the charm of it all. The main conundrum of who actually killed captain Alex is pretty incidental to the chaotic, partially unscripted film

Overall it was unlike anything I'd ever seen before. Which I'm taking as a good thing.
