Storyline

Injustice begets a criminal. Kool is an artist without prospects, a black belt in karate, and in love with LaShawna, poised and college bound. One night she witnesses a stabbing and discovers the victim is a cop as he dies in her arms. She's jailed for murder by the infamous Ramparts Division of the LAPD. Kool wants to prove her innocence, and Tully, the cynical detective in charge, ignores LaShawna's case but uses Kool to break up an incipient crime operation. She's in danger because the guilty parties fear that the officer talked before he died. While in jail awaiting a hearing and legal help, she's beaten to death by a rogue cop. Kool vows revenge: the Hot Boyz are born. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

One of the worst movies that I have ever seen. I will never give those 90 minutes back.
16 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me just start off by saying that I had the misfortune of watching this movie a while back because this was included in a four DVD pack that I bought at Walmart for five dollars. I will say that even paying $1.25 in a four pack is considered a waste because this movie is so freaking bad that I will never get an hour and a half back because I watched it. I might even use it as a means of torture on someone to punish the person.

Also, I must mention this: I first watched this at the age of 14 on UPN. I enjoyed the movie back then but now that I'm older, I am A LOT wiser and know A LOT better. I can't even begin to say how bad this movie is. The plot made no sense whatsoever. I refuse to believe that a girl would go to jail for being at a murder scene and not being questioned once about who murdered a cop. Second, how did the crooked cop know who she was? The guy didn't even beat her that badly enough to die. Also, how did the cop know it was that girl's funeral he decided to shoot up? Let's not forget the drastic change in plot midway. It goes from being a drama about a guy trying to get his girlfriend out of jail to a story about rising up the ranks in the crime world.

I have watched movies in the past where a lot of the cast consisted of rappers or a portion of the cast were rappers. "Thicker Than Water" with Mack 10 and Fat Joe comes to mind. Granted the movie is low budget and the acting is bad, but it had a decent plot. It was enjoyable for what it is. I have seen bits and pieces of "State Property." The acting was bad, but I haven't seen the whole thing to give my take.

This movie, on the other hand, suffered from bad writing, bad direction, many errors, horrible acting (Especially from Silkk The Shocker). The only thing I liked out of it was the music in the background and even I thought that the music was out of place during the final shootout.

Unless you are masochist, never watch this movie. However, this could be a great form of torture or punishment to use on someone.
