Movie Reviews

Dean Winters saves this one.
IhateMTV | The U.S. | 05/15/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"First of all, I despise Nelly. I think he's one of the worst mainstream rappers out there. The man can't rap and this movie shows that he can't act either. I really don't understand why all the other reviewers praise him as one of the best rappers to act in a film (but then again, none of the other reviewers even bothered to mention Winter's brilliant acting, so what do they know?).I know that it sounds like I'm being unfair to Nelly just because I don't like his music, I actually tried the best I could to give him a chance. The fact is, the guy didn't show any emotion whatsoever, had the same exact facial expression throughout the entire movie, and used nothing but annoying slang words (which is really probably the writer's fault).The movie, however, really suprised me. After watching the first ten minutes, I was just about ready to shut it off (it seemed like just another steriotypical hood movie that uses a bunch of slang words that anyone who doesn't watch MTV or BET won't understand), but I'm glad that i stayed around. The plot turned out to be great, with lots of twists and suprising swerves.In my opinion, the best thing about this film was Dean Winters. I'm a huge fan of the hit HBO show Oz (His character, Ryan O'Reily, is actually my favorite prisoner on the show), and I only rented this because he was in it. Dean didn't disappoint either. He plays the arrogant, greedy, and selfish Bobby Starr perfectly. In fact, he's so good that it's almost impossible not to hate him. I'd also like to mention that there's a terrific deleted/extended scene with Bobby Starr and Johnnie Marandino, where Bobby furtherly tries to persuade Marandino to fund him for his rap company.Overall, Snipes was a suprisingly good film. I give it a 7/10."
Really Good Movie!
