Movie Reviews

This is the Real Deal, No Hollywood Propaganda
C. M. Mohammed | Brooklyn, New York | 01/18/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you seen any real interview footage of Frank Lucas or if you seen the "Charlie Rose" show with Frank Lucas on it,then you will know that Denzel Washingston's portrayal of him was a frabrication and actors lie, and you would know that the producers and writers of the film "American Gangster" wrote and produce a lie that was really based on Leroy "Nickey" Barnes. Nickey Barnes documentary is the truth and if you want more truth get the book written by Bumpy Johnson's widow Mayme Johnson. American Gangster was a Blockbuster lie check the public record."
Yet Another Side Of The Story
Vikki | Woodbridge, NJ | 02/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this along with "Superfly: The Frank Lucas Story" This was a great DVD and brings alot to the table. I saw "American Gangster" and found the subject very interesting yet could not help but feel that I was not getting the "real deal" and only some convoluted Hollywood version of the truth. Like many Hollywood "Based on a True Story" movies, the subjects are interesting in their own right, yet filmmakers feel the need to embellish. I was not there but the people in this DVD were! They all have alot to contribute to this interesting tale. I heard Nicky Barnes interviewed on Howard Stern recently and found him to be a very compelling and interesting person. I can't say that I agree with his choices or lifestyle but his interview and the DVD gave me some very interesting things to think over."
An outstanding and unfiltered perspective of the drug busine
Don C. Wilder | Oki | 02/08/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film allows you to hear the story from those who lived it. There is no Hollywood spin on this. You hear the words straight from Nicky Barnes' mouth. It gave me a different perspective of the man. Under different circumstances, Nicky could have probably been the CEO of a Fortune 500 company."
The Code
A. Ingram | 03/04/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nicky Barnes is the truth. He lived his life by a code. He lived his life by an oath of loyalty that he made to his brothers. What happens when you're betrayed by the ones whom you put your trust into. What happens when the people who you kept it real with don't keep it real with you? This book is on point and unravels the circumstances surrounding one question that a lot of people want to know the answer to. Why did Nicky Barnes snitch? It's often said that getting revenge is the best feeling in the world. In Mr. Barnes case I'd have to agree."
