A group of Nigerians acting as Robin Hood’s Merry Men (Ayo Makun, Folarin Falana, Jim Iyke and Ramsey Nouah) give up on robbing the rich to give to the poor and concentrate on legitimate businesses. However, a corrupt politician (Iretiola Doyle) kidnaps one of their wives and threatens to kill her if they do not destroy incriminating evidence in a corruption case. Also with Damilola Adegbite, Ufuoma McDermott, Nancy Isime, Falz and Uchemba Williams. Directed by Moses Inwang. A few lines of dialogue are spoken in Pidgin, Igbo, and other Nigerian languages. [Running Time: 1:54]

The Merry Men 2: Another Mission SEX/NUDITY 4

 – Two women in a club wear miniskirts that reveal most of their legs and thighs and meet a man and one woman wears a tube top that reveals cleavage and bare abdomen: the two women kiss each other as he stares and they then kiss him on a cheek, the man takes the women to a hotel room where they handcuff him, clothed, to the bed while kissing his cheeks and he thrusts his pelvis several times as the scene ends. A clothed couple sits on a bed; the woman straddles the man and kisses him for several seconds as he removes the belt from her dress, ending the scene (sex is implied).
 Four men kiss their girlfriends and wives for a few seconds in two scenes. A police officer flirts with a man, wiggling her hips and rubbing his arm. A man says that he loves a married woman and her husband says, “I’m gonna shoot you.” A married man says that he had a youthful fling with a woman and later sees the woman with a young son, looking as if he wonders if the boy is his child.
 A woman tells her husband that they should try the Kama Sutra but we do not see any sexual activity. A woman says she missed a period and may be pregnant; her husband wiggles his groin against her clothed buttocks, smiles, and says he is happy. A pregnant woman cries out that her baby is coming and we later hear she had a baby boy.
 A woman wearing short-shorts and another woman wearing a bikini shake their buttocks with their backs to the camera. Several men wear knee-length shorts in a few scenes. Several women wear tank tops that bare their cleavage. A few women wear miniskirts that end at mid-thigh and a few other women wear off the shoulder knee-length dresses. A woman wears a dress slit to the top of one thigh. Through a cloudy shower door, we see a woman’s bare shoulders and upper back. A man in a bubble bath reveals bare shoulders, arms and upper chest, while a woman nearby wears running shorts that bare her legs to the upper thighs.

The Merry Men 2: Another Mission VIOLENCE/GORE 5

 – Four women kneel in a line as a dozen men rush forth with pistols drawn until four other men with assault rifles shoot and kill several of the men; a woman screams and ducks down as the first four women grab rifles and kill the remaining threatening men (we see no blood but many men cry out and fall), and another woman punches a man in the face and has handcuffs put on him.
 In a black and white flashback, we hear that rich people are robbing a secret Nigerian gold mine and see a woman running from the mine with a case of gold as several men chase her and shoot; the woman is struck and blood gushes as she falls (we hear that she went to work for a crooked politician after that).
 A woman throws a knife at a man in a bedroom and misses; the two struggle as the scene ends. A man finds a woman playing his piano and confronts her until another man jumps on him and a fight ensues with kicks and punches; the two men swing a club and a knife before they fall through a large glass window into a swimming pool where the intruder chokes the homeowner, who grabs the intruder’s groin and the intruder passes out in the water; the other man enters the house, where the woman punches him five times, they point pistols at each other and the woman drops a teargas canister to end the scene. A man chokes a screaming woman, she hits him over the head with a heavy candlestick and he punches her unconscious. A woman screams off-screen as two men with drawn pistols enter a dark house; another man holding a metal pipe enters the house and one of the first two men rises up from under a basket and hits the intruder with a club as we hear a shout and see the man fall. A man fights with four other men, all using kicks, punches, club strikes, flips, and chokes until the four men are unconscious. A man renders three assailants unconscious using punches and kicks as we hear shouting and grunting. A man approaches a woman getting off a motor bike and she grabs his crotch, and then punches him unconscious. A man and a woman punch each other unconscious; she revives first, looking uninjured and other men lay the unconscious man on a cot. A woman fells a man by slamming the palm of her hand into his throat then she quickly punches another man unconscious. Three men fight one another, with two men falling unconscious. A woman points a pistol at a man, who grabs it and forces her head onto a desk, but releases her.
 Three women on motorbikes stop at a roadblock and fire drugged darts into three men (they collapse); the women inject teargas into a truck and two men inside collapse as a prisoner holds her breath and comes out (we hear that the three biker women are holding the prisoner’s young son captive).
 Three men meet four women in a parking garage basement; a man says to one woman, “I’ll snap your skinny neck,” the men and three of the women point guns at each other (no one fires) and the fourth woman tells the men that she will kill a woman by strangling her with barbed wire in a pit of feces as she grabs one man by the crotch and he shrieks.
 Three drugged darts hit three men in the neck in close-up, their eyes cross and they fall off-screen as a woman walks into view with a blowgun in her hand; the scene cuts to four men hanging by their wrists from a ceiling as a woman douses them with cold water and two men scream; after being threatened by another woman, the men are driven to a road and tossed out into the dirt.
 A woman is put into a dimly lit basement cell for three days and given food she cannot eat because of allergies (she sobs several times); her husband receives a cell phone video where she is blurred but screaming at the sound of a Taser cracking several times. In a flashback, a woman saves a teen boy from a bunch of men threatening to beat him up.
 Two men argue in a few scenes. A man and a woman argue in several scenes. A man shouts and breaks a laptop. A man shouts and chases another man around a table. A man and his fiancée argue loudly and she packs a bag and leaves the house. A woman says she killed five police officers and became a government assassin. A man says twice, “We’re all gonna die.” A woman says that her brother was poisoned and has spent a year sick in bed. In a hospital waiting room, we hear that an unknown woman has cancer and a news report states that a woman was kidnapped. A man kneels and proposes to a woman, and then says it’s a joke; she chases him toward the camera and the frame freezes.
 A man at a village market holds a dead pig and another man carries two chickens by the feet and grimaces, saying one of them must have passed gas. A husband asks his wife if she vomited and she says no (they suspect she might be pregnant).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
