The worst movie I have seen in 10 years...

"What exactly is this supposed to be? A muscial soap opera? If you are going to do an adaptation of Carmen that takes place in the 21st century, it might be a good idea to have a few things like: 1) a script that makes sense. 2) Actors who can act. 3) Actors who can at least understand the lines they have to read. 4) and maybe a couple songs that actually move the story along. This movie, if you can call it that, is so bad you want to stop if half way through and break the DVD in half. I am sorry I didn't do just that. But at least I can sell it back to some sucker on Amazon or on Ebay and get some of my money back."

"I think that this movie is definately worth your money and your time. It is fabulous and it involes alot of r'n'b singing and music. The story is fabulous and of course the actor is fabulous: BEYONCE KNOWLES!"

"Carmen is the story of Beyonce - the troublemaker and hottie of the town, and Mekhi Phifer who plays Officer Hill. Hill is engaged to the perfect woman (not Beyonce, another girl)... until one night when he has to drive Carmen to the police station and thats when the drama begins. Carmen will do anything to get out of going to jail. Even seducing him. And thats where everything starts to go wrong..
Its not anything spectacular, but its good to watch once or twice. The songs in it are pretty good.. especially "If looks could kill" which Beyonce & Mos Def sang really well... and the twist definately suprised me. There are some boring bits, but overall i enjoyed it and i think its worth watching.
Oh and the quality of the dvd was good too!"
