Movie Reviews

Could do better for a 25th anniversary DVD!
Su | Australia | 11/27/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I rate this one star; not for the movie itself but purely for the actual DVD (packaging, presentation, etc).

For a 25th anniversary edition release, it could be better. It's been packaged in nothing but a regular DVD case, not even a booklet inside which would have been nice, perhaps showing still images from the movie or photos of graffiti.

The people behind releasing this DVD could have come better, aside from the additional features there's nothing about it that screams 'special edition'. Pretty disappointed. It doesn't do this movie the justice it deserves for it's 25th anniversary."
Good purchase if you don't own this classic on DVD

"Wild Style is considered to be the first hip-hop film. Rhino has released a special 25th anniversary edition of the film. "Wild Style" was before "Breakin'" and "Beat Streat." This 1982 film was about the hip-hop culture of early 1980's New York. The movie filmed in the South Bronx captures that gritty graffiti era that birthed rap music. The filmed starred Fab Five Freddy, The Cold Crush Brothers, Grand Master Flash and The Chief Rocker Busy Bee. The film really captures the graffiti culture of that era.

The 25th anniversary edition includes new bonus features and interviews. If you are a fan of the annual VH-1 Awards Show, "Hip-Hop Honors," pick up "Wild Style" and school yourself on old school hip-hop.

"This movie is alright. It's great to watch only because it's from that era. If you're really looking for a good film, watch Style Wars. That is a classic and it goes into depth about graffiti, breaking and hip hop. The acting in this movie sucks, but it's kind of cool to see some of the renouned artists. Rent on Netflix and only buy if you like to collect stuff from this period."
