Ms Mabel “Madea” Simmons is back once again. In Boo! A Madea Halloween we watch the hilarious Madea as she tackles the horrors that occur during Halloween. This comedy horror is directed, written, produced and stars Tyler Perry.
This movie has a good concept. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see Madea during scary Halloween. There are a lot of funny moments as one would expect. However, I had a problem with the performances. Most of the cast was acting over the top. This made some characters very irritating and hard to watch.
Technicall wise the film was averagely good. It was beautifully shot and edited. Just don’t expect anything technical creatively executed. Basically there’s no wow factor about the look of the film. This is a common trait of the Madea series.
This is definitely not one of Tyler Perry’s best work. It is however enjoyable. You can say that it has the Madea magic.

My rating out of 10: A sad 5
