When we first watched the trailer for ‘The King of Thieves, Agesinkole,’ we honestly didn’t think it would be that good; in fact, we went to the theater expecting the film to be a flop, but oh boy, were we pleasantly surprised!
The epic tale of Agesinkole, an all-powerful Bandit, and his reign of terror in the affluent Kingdom of Ajeromi is told in King of Thieves.
Concerned about his plundering, the kingdom sends out hunters, witches, and priests to kill him, kicking off an epic tale of vengeance, valor, and glory.
Aisha Lawal, Broda Shaggi, Femi Adebayo, Ibrahim Chatta, Mr Macaroni, Odunlade Adekola, Toyin Abraham Ajeyemis, Peju Ogunmola, and others star in the film.
The star-studded King of Thieves proves that Yoruba Nollywood has progressed to the point where it is now film worthy, from acting to production to plot to prop quality, costumes, effects, acting, sound track and background chants, and music.
All of the characters brought their A-games, especially Peju Ogunmola, who was incredible, and actor Itele D Icon, who played Agekinsole’s right hand.
The character was annoying and dastardly wicked at first, but the audience forgave him when the story of how he reincarnated was told.
Despite the fact that practically every scene in King of Thieves was filled with such incantations,
Despite the fact that practically every scene in King of Thieves was loaded with magical incantations, we like how all of the conversation was in the lovely ijinlé Yoruba language.
