Movie Reviews

Good God! What is this ...? Needs a zero star!

"I gave it a chance and not suprisingly I was thoroughly sickened. This is one of the latest in a crop of Hip Hop crime dramas featuring the same horrible rappers that fuel the ... soundtracks in the acting roles. This movie left a foul taste in my mouth and quite a headache. This is further proof that Rap is ruining all forms of entertainment. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this incorrigible trash. Word Yo!"
It was pure [baloney], but I kinda liked it...

"The plot was tired, but the acting was ok especially Ja Rule who seemed a natural to his role. Not a bad first outing Ja.
Pras co-produced and I think he should stick to doing that. His character just seemed too disinterested, or perhaps it was just Pras.
Props to Robert Adetuyi for writing and directing - Jolly good show mah men, but did the editing kill the flow?
Keep up the work guys, hey everyone's a critic..."

"All in all a respectable movie. Obviously no urban movies are gunna be winning awards but if given the proper amount of showing to audiences this movie could rate up there with the best urban movies. Ja rule's acting is amazing for a freshman appearence and pras hits the sympathetic actor alrite. I give it about 7.5/10 on my scale and would highly suggest watching it to any fan of hip hop. The soundtrack to go with it/songs preformed within the movie by ja rule and pras are also very good."
