Raw
24 March 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Sure the audio and the special effects are not there, but this movie is as raw as it gets. The characters are a bit extreme and the acting is not good, but this is a movie for gangstas from the streets.

After watching a movie like this, I just want to go out and pull a caper or hit the 'crilla'. The themes are very intense and if you're going to watch this movie, be ready to see what life in the streets are like. Life in New Orleans ain't no joke and this movie will show that. I definitely enjoyed watching the music videos that accompanied the movie. The soundtrack that was associated with the movie was very fitting too. Watch it at your own risk.
