Appalling on so many levels
6 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I bought this film on a double DVD with The Wrecking Crew for only one pound, so it's not like I broke the bank to buy it. Sadly this dosen't mean it wasn't a waste of money. When I saw the DVD I was really excited about the prospect of a film with not one but four high end rappers in it. I started the DVD and within minutes it became clear that this was possibly one of the worst pieces of cinema ever created. Not bad in a poorly scripted rom-com sort of way, but bad in a "could have been made by a child with their dad's camcorder sort of way. The camera work, scene direction and script make You've Been Framed look like a compilation of cinematic masterpieces. If I was ever to meet Snoop Dogg, Fat Joe or Ice T I would have to ask them why they decided to release the film despite the offence it has so clearly caused to hundreds. In defence of the film they did lose most of the final film reels on route back from Russia, so there's probably an person in France laughing as they watch the version of Urban Menace we were all meant to see. Until that comes to light please avoid this film like the plague and if you have to see it don't say I didn't warn you.
