A terrible 18-minute film with unrealistic gunbattle scenes.
2 December 2002 | by (Ann Arbor, MI) – See all my reviews

I bought the DVD to this movie, and although it had many of

Snoop Dogg's music videos and concert footage, the actual short

film itself was pretty bad. It generally centered around a short

gunbattle scene in front of a liquor store and it was pretty bad. It

was unrealistic and wasnt very exciting at all. But thats it. Dont

bother renting or buying this movie. The regular version includes

the 18-minute short film combined with 36 minutes more of

concert and other footage for a total film length of 54 minutes. But

this movie was bad. Even if you consider watching it at a friend's

house, try to avoid this turkey and do something better with your

time. AVOID THIS FILM
