Auteur Watch - Teco Benson
Well, you gotta hand it to this guy: prolific as f... I mean, he keeps busy. One complaint, as usual: he's directed the whole Explosion trilogy, that I understand, but check out the titles. The first installment's called Explosion: Now or Never. The second one's called Explosion 2: Now or Never. The THIRD one's called Explosion 3: Now or Never. If they do make a fourth one, I think it should be called Explosion 4: Now or... Wait Just a Little While Longer. Alas, Teco's slowing down a bit since his 2004-2006 period of high output. Apparently Nigeria's got the old studio system, where a director could make five films a year! Contract players! 24-7 shooting schedules! What's not to like?
