Produced by Ramon Film Productions in Kampala and described as Uganda's first and greatest action movie, this flick prolly beats any wild action flick coming out of Nollywood and even Hollywood gotsta bow down to this! Who Killed Captain Alex? is set in Kampala shorty after a police raid in which Captain Alex and drug dealer's brother are murdered and both the gangsters and police seek to avenge the deaths. According to the Ugandan Newspaper, The Observer, the film cost 8 million shillings (US $3500) and the police refused to provide the filmmakers with any support apart from uniforms - on their request list were guns, tankers and helicopters. (lol!)
From The Observer: It is a well scripted movie, but the visuals are too graphic. Nabwama says, he just wanted to produce an action movie, acted, produced and directed by Ugandans. But he can’t be forgiven for using toy guns and pistols in the production.
“When we approached CPS about the project, we were told that we [film industry] are not yet at that level. They could only provide us with police uniforms,” he says. “But we had asked them to provide us with helicopters, guns, tankers and access to army barracks. So we had to settle for the computer.”
...Apparently there's a sequel on the way.
