Sumotherhood review

Adam Deacon's Avuvahood follow-up falls flat.

Sumotherhood review

At times the tone is over the top, with characters shouting their way through scenes, and there are moments when silliness takes over and the humour becomes childish. Nevertheless, the movie is overall entertaining, has box-office quality and is refreshing in that it speaks of (and to) the urban scene with a mocking voice that is highly empathetic at heart.
