Revue of COLD FEET
Cold Feet is about Rtd. Col. Mayowa (Jim Iyke) and his wife Omoye (Joselyn Dumas) who are on a getaway celebrating their 5th year wedding anniversary. When the holidaying couple bump into Tare (Enyinna Nwigwe) an old flame of Omoye who is also holidaying with his fiancé, old sparks are rekindled between and Omoye and Tare and things go downhill from there.
The plot of Cold Feet is one that has been worn and I assumed that the producers would have a new spin to this clichéd plot especially since the trailer didn’t give much away. Since Cold Feet had a very familiar plot, I expected that this will be extra motivation for them to try to spin it but the trailer basically told the whole story and I endured the whole film expecting a plot twist which never came. Also, the conclusion of the Cold Feet was so unrealistic that I found myself laughing at the incredulity of it. I guess it was an attempt at a plot twist but nah, it didn’t work for me.
Furthermore, Cold Feet felt like an extended advert for Ibom Resorts so much so that unnecessary scenes were included to showcase the luxurious resort. However, I must say that Ibom Resorts looked very nice as a background to this film and made for a befitting backdrop and the beauty of the location enhanced the aesthetic quality of Cold Feet which was further enlarged by some very beautiful cinematography and coloring making Cold Feet an aesthetically pleasing film.
Talking about aesthetics, the stunning Joeslyn Dumas put in a good shift especially the last scene where she showed us that she isn’t just a beauty to behold but a very good actress and reminding us why is a veteran in the Ghanaian film industry. Eyinna Nwigwe is also eye candy especially in his shirtless scenes and the ladies in the cinema were just giggling upandan. Although it was weird seeing Jim Iyke as the loving husband, I think he did well interpreting the role…I just wasn’t convinced with the bald head he spotted in the film. In my opinion, the best thing in Cold Feet is its main cast who did very well interpreting their roles.
Quite frankly, I didn’t enjoy Cold Feet because it was so predictable that I found myself begging the film to get to its expected conclusion much quicker so I could leave. What did you think? Did you like Cold feet? Let me know in the comment section below or on Twitter , Instagram or Facebook.
