Gritty, Compelling, Fantastically performed..."The Playaz Court" is a refreshing surprise
22 September 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I too, usually take one look at a film's cover and decide there and then whether it's worth my time or not. Thankfully, I gave the cover of 'The Playaz Court' a second look, and discovered it's far from the 'rap star does movie' clone I presumed it would be.

Upon bassing the bar in Oregon, lawyer hopeful returns home to Inglewood - constantly keeping an eye on his younger brother, Reggie, who has gotten involved with some pretty seedy crowds and some powerful players. It all comes to a head, when a seemingly normal game of basketball (with a one man playing too!) turns to tragedy - when one of the locals, T-Bone, is found shot in the toilets.

Naturally, Reggie and his cohorts point to the white man, who has suspiciously left the grounds just after the murder would have occured. Getting hold of him, he's dragged back inside, where the players decide they'll stage their own court to see whether the white man should fry - or whether someone else entirely is responsible for the murder.

Gritty, Compelling, Fantastically performed..."The Playaz Court" is a refreshing surprise. And despite the fact some of the screenplay comes across a little hammy, it's nothing short of damn entertaining.
