Movie Reviews

Was this film for real?
Lorraine Hall | Birmingham, West midlands United Kingdom | 06/04/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"As a viewer from the U.K. it can be quite difficult acquiring African-American films. I really do enjoy watching this type of film, but I can honestly say that watching this could have put me off for life.All of the men in the film were in serious need of medical attention and all of the women were acting no better than women employed in the oldest profession (only they weren't getting paid for it). The men were suffering from so much fustration, anger and agression that you could not understand what they were saying half of the time. You had to watch the film about 3 times just to understand it (and that's if you could stay awake for long enough).It was lucky to even get one star in the rating and I think that I did you all a favour by watching it and reviewing it so you wouldn't have to.To summarise,DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME. getting this one."
Beating myself for buying this travesty of a film

"I have a enormous black movie collection and I have never seen an urban film so awful in all my life. The acting is bad, the plot is terrible, and the stereotype of the black male and female run rampant throughout this travesty of a film.

This movie should of never been released to the viewing public. I have to say that this is an embarassment to urban films and I am throwing this movie away."
Very low budget...

"Love Beat the Hell Outta Me is a cheesy low budget production.

However, with that said... the best character was Chris played by Terrance Howard. He drives the movie. He's the tough bad boy with nothing nice to say, but he keeps the movie one fourth decent and interesting. The other characters are dull and uncomplicated. They also lack acting ability.

The movie did shed some light and put into SOME perspective on how men think regarding women and relationships. It seems as though, both men and women think each are just full of it and always have an ulterior motive for wanting to be with one another. But this movie showed how neither men nor women want to communicate their true feelings or just be honest about what they want from jump street. In all, unspoken words and misdirected actions help ensued massive amounts of confusion throughout dating and relationships as this movie showed.

I wouldn't recommend this movie to be watched for its production, but if one must watch it for its message regarding black men and their thought processes.

"It is somewhat hilarious to read some of the posts/comments made by mostly women about this movie. Now you know how a lot of black men feel after watching movies like Waiting to Exhale.

Honestly, this movie shows how a lot of us black men kick it when we get together. If you open your mind instead of taking the movie personal, you will see our pains and issues in our relationships and why we act the way we do.

The movie takes on four different relationships from four different brotha's and their perspectives. One of the most realistic movies I've seen regarding black men. No sugar coating...Just the real!!"
