I'm a NO TALENT SOLDIER
20 September 1999 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This movie proved to be one of the most nauseauting hour and a half stretches of my life. I just don't comprehend how Master P manages to produce such garbage, and the fact that there is a market for it. The worst rappers on the planet expand the horizon of their unharmonious lyrics to some of the worst dialogue, and I've seen pornos with better plot development. Master Trash and his partner steal some cell phones, and how so COINCIDENTALLY he has friends who can activate them? And the whole thing about the store owner with the hot women in the back, and how Masturbator P's romantic interest lives in a technological outpost resembling the Batcave in her apartment, and that scene were AJ Johnson starts talking about what he's going to be wearing while Master Pathetic is on the phone....my skin crawls at the horrible editing, screenwriting, and utter shamless self exploitation that riddles M.P's videotaped ego trip. When it comes to the one of the worst movies ever made, to modify the words of the No Talent Soldiers, "It IS YOUR FAULT"!!!!
