"This movie was pretty cool. It featured Silkk,C-Murder,Snoop,Mystikal,A.J. Johnson,Gary Busey and more. Yhe starring role belonged to Silkk playing a character known as "Cool". He was a good kid and had a blakc belt in karate and wanted to be a rapper. But is girlfriend got convicted of a crime and she was pregnant in jail with his baby. She died in prison by being beaten, and "Cool" just flipped out. He forgot about life and went into the neverending dope game. With his click known as the Hotboyz(C-Murder,Snoop,Mystikal,A.J. Johnson). The got into slaning and dealing with cocain until they got caught. This was a cool movie, if you see it somewhere chech it out."

"This movie is poo. Bottomline. But its that funny poo thats only funny when one of your friends stepped in it. Idon't know where these people are getting off sayin that Master P has EVER had any good movies (Foolish was so-so at best). I saw this movie on TV and I was laughing my ass off! Even the "sad" parts are funny.
Everything else is predictable and the acting, oh my please please do not get on the acting.
If there were negative stars I would give this move a negative 10 or something. But if your high or drunk or just want a good laugh and a laugh that will make tears comming out your eyes check this out.
Otherwise if your looking for a good gangsta flick drink bleach before watching this crap!"
NO NO NO ABSOULTELY NOT! 0!0!0! ZERO!

"NO NO NO NO NO. A BIG FAT 0. WHY MUST BLACKS ALWAYS BE PROTRAYED AS GANGSTAS AND EVERYTHING ELSE BAD. HERES THE STORY LINE: YEA I STARTS OFF GOOD. BUT THEN LATER TURNS INTO A VERY PREDICTIBLE AND POSSIBLY(FOR SURE ONE OF THE) WORST MOVIES EVER DONE. ITS ABOUT A GUY THAT HAS BIG DREAMS AND HAS A GIRLFRIEND THAT HE LOVES. THEN SHE IS JAILED FOR A MURDER SHE DID NOT DO(HE JUST DIED IN HERE ARMS). AND HE TRIES TO GET HERE OUT BY PROVING HER INNOCENCE.. WHILE IN PRISON SHE'S BEATEN TO DEATH BY A COP(YES THIS DOES HAPPEN SOMETIMES IN REAL LIFE, AND YES SOMETIME FOR ABSOLUTELY NO REASON WHATSOEVER, AND NO ITS NOT ALWAYS WHITE COPS, COPS OF OTHER ETHNICITIES DO THIS AS WELL, SO I DO AGREE THAT THEY SHOULD JUST USE WHITE COPS AS THE WORST COPS). AFTER THIS HE BECOMES A GANGSTA FOR REVENGE. THIS MOVIE WAS TERRIBLE. THE BEST PART WAS THE END. MASTER P. PLEASE WRITE A MOVIE THAT DOESNT PROTRAY PEOPLE LIVING IN THE GHETTO AS GANGSTAS. IF U WANT TO SEE A GOOD MOVIE THAT TAKES PLACE IN A GHETTO THEN CHECK OUT "OUR SONG" PEACE."

"Master P directed this movie however he did not have a big part of being in this movie that sucked. Silk wants to be a rapper his girlfriend is framed for murdering a cop. Silk does whatever he can to go undercover and clear his girlfriends name. The only time Silk acting was good in this movie was when he was in the hospital crying for real right before his girlfriend died. The action was not all that bad especially when Silk was in that car driving all around in circles away from the cops and land into the water."
HOT BOYZ Review

"In the glory days of No Limit's rap franchise, Master P took "overexposure" to glorious new heights with this very stupid "strugglin' in the hood" tale. Silk The Shocker (P's younger brother) is Kool, a self-proclaimed thug who turns to a life of crime when his girlfriend gets framed for a crime after witnessing a murder. What? Anyways, the story flip-flops all over the place, taking time to throw in every major cliche possible. Kool is an aspiring rapper who also practices martial arts and specializes in car chases. He tries to make a deal with Gary Busey's crooked cop but it doesn't work to his advantage.After his girlfriend is murdered, and his subsquent careers as a martial artist, rapper, basketball player, and NASCAR driver fail, Kool joins up with a crew featuring No Limit rappers, Snoop Dogg, Mystikal, C-Murder, and comedian Anthony "A.J." Johnson. The crew nicknamed the "Hot Boyz" is a gang that murders major drug dealers in an attempt to take the drug game for themselves. Well, of course.Once you hear the cheesy opening monolouge from Master P's overacting little bro, you know what you're getting into with this one. Master P's over-contrived script takes "suspension of disbelief" to brave new heights. In particular, many of the scenes involving Gary Busey's cop character make no sense. In one scene, Kool agrees to set up a major drug dealer played by veteran actor Clifton Powell. Before the situation unfolds, Busey murders a man in cold blood and threatens to blame it on Kool if he doesn't help him out. The motivation for any cop, no matter how crooked he is, to blackmail someone who has already agreed to help him out is non-existent. But wait it gets worse. After deciding to take on a life of crime, gangster Kool shows up at Busey's house and robs him of his entire gun collection. That's right. A police informant shows up at a cop's house with a pistol and robs in the middle of the day. There's a believable scenerio. Of course, at the end of the day, the drug-dealing gangster leaves a trail of dead bodies including rival drug dealers and decorated police officers but due to him "having a good lawyer", he doesn't end up in prison. Master P the screenwriter is certainly trying hard but he ends up with Ed Wood results. This whole story is just awful. While it tries to play itself in the same veign as classic urban films such as BOYZ N THE HOOD and MENACE II SOCIETY, it could not be any more of a failure. Where those films showed a realistic portrait of "black America", this one is just going out of its way to take on every element of the action genre. Kool's outlaw attitude has no moral or truly negative outcome. He is just the ultimate black action cliche. "Hot Boyz" is certainly never boring but it seems to blast its way into a series of nonsensical situations before ending more ridicilously than it started."
