Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I happen to agree with a couple of other reviews. This movie is much more than a rapconcoction of lyrics and music. It is a social, and an especially poignant drama of emotions and desires. The King, (Mr. Sams), should have stayed with his wife and baby and continued to pursue his school work. He has a decent job to sustain himself and his family. However, his desires are greater than all of those IMPORTANT matters. He plays the role exceptionally well. I Tick, (Mr. Brice), does a superb job of playing a stone thug who has little to live for and less to care about. He is in the Rap world without caring about the Rap world. He has a talent that he realizes can be enhanced by this young straight boy, who is not a thug, but has a talent for writing. He realizes that their two lives would need to merge. What are his desires, actually? I have begun to wonder, as it is clear he does not want the King to walk out on him, and he appears to be prepared to prevent him from doing so. I love the interplay between the unspoken words that "I" has when he watches "THE KING" wind and wrangle and rapping in front of him on the stage. Yet he admires everything about him while finding his "brand" of black man, distasteful. I don't know what the writers/producers wanted us to get from this movie, but there was a lot more presented here than perhaps was intended. The final scene may have been tacted on, but it left me feeling sorry for the thug whom I feared, in this movie, would be the ruination of the King and eventually kill or destroy the life of the good guy. It is interesting that a shooting scene was added to the club scene. If anything was tacted on, I felt it was that one. Although, since I am such a fan of Mr. Brice, I loved every scene with him, particularly his rauncy lyrics and his presentation of them. How did this movie get away from me from 1993 until the year 2002? Thanks to BSTARZ I have been able to see this movie. It needs to be revived. It is certainly contemporary in its concepts."

"This is a real car wreck of a movie and its easy to see why it never got a theatrical release. The Director deserves most of the blame, but there's plenty to go around. The only copies of this film likely to sell will be to people who worked on it, trying to get every copy off the market so they can sponge the stain off their resumes."

"I fell in love with Ron Brice when I witness him play this role.
He has charisma just as he does in his' other roles. ''I realize that certain viewers don't own the depth to appreciate this film,simply because they can't relate''! Reality isn't always pretty, it has a Grotesque side as well! A Synopsis of this film is simply about a college student who uses RAP as a pawn in order to exscape true responsibility! As a result he falls in the path of a Die Hard Rapper/drug-addict...Rich is caught up in the Hype of what he thinks RAP can bring. What Rich finds out is that ''all that glitters isn't gold''."
I have mixed feeling about this flick

"it doesn't know weather it want's to make rap out to be a useless outlet or praise the idea of a record ceo being right about the arguement he had with the rappers was laughable.maybe they was trying to be un biased buy telling his side of the story.but it camed off as a anti rap movie.oh and lets not start on the suburban middle aged white women who said there music was garbage?.and then offered them she gives a [darn] about them making good or bad quality rap."
