So, what’s my view of Burning Coles? One thing you can be certain of is that it is a quality production that is sure to bless individuals and families. The first thing that stood out for me is that the novel’s story written by Emmanuela Mike-Bamiloye was re-written as a screenplay not by one, but two talented screenwriters.

The very thought of having drama ministers as Damilola Mike-Bamiloye and Goodness Adegbola writing the script for this movie has a gospel movie reviewer like me licking my lips at the prospect of such a combined effort.
I discussed in my midyear review of 2022 gospel movies the benefits of more specialisations and collaborations; so, it’s an absolute delight to witness this first-of-its-kind partnership in gospel film production. Without giving away details, one major result of this is that there are multiple twists that make for a more interesting watch.
There is something this film does with its characters – it unveils and links them in ways that serve as callbacks, which make movies more immersive. There’s a character reveal done in Burning Coles for a cameo that I think gospel filmmakers can learn from.
It was a casting choice and camera shot that elicited loud applause from the audience at the premiere. These are subtle elements that give a production that bit more lift. Likewise, for those of you familiar with movies from Free Gift International, you’ll be pleased to see a certain known actress feature here.
The young actors in the movie also pulled their weight to make the movie engaging. As usual, the scores were on point, and I identified at least, two unique background tunes, one of which came in fully as a beautiful end credits soundtrack by Jay-Mikee.
