Who Killed Captain Alex?
ARROW'S TOP TWENTY OF TWENTY TWENTY • Action, Comedy, Thriller
Welcome to Wakaliwood, Uganda: home of “DA BEST OF DA BEST MOVIES!” and the vanguards of DIY commando cinema. Under the guidance of writer/producer/director Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey (IGG) and with producer/star Alan Ssali Hofmanis, this crack crew of self-taught filmmakers and martial arts aficionados produce dozens of gonzo action films in the Kampala ghetto with budgets that rarely exceed $200 USD. Utilizing scrap parts to build computers, machine guns and a full-sized Huey helicopter, these real-life superheroes inspire more heart, imagination and soul than a thousand Hollywood blockbusters. In Who Killed Captain Alex?, Uganda's president gives Captain Alex the mission to defeat the Tiger Maffia, but Alex gets killed in the process. It's up to Alex's brother to avenge his death.
