This is the worst film I have ever seen
26 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To the best of my knowledge, this is the worst film EVER made. I am not exaggerating, it is not like Showgirls or Virus bad, it is a whole new low. It was only released 'cause Ice T and co. had the money from being successful rappers to finance it itself. I do media and film studies, and we had to make the introduction to a thriller. Compared to this film, every single groups work looked like Usual Suspects or Momento, and it was the first time most of us had used any camera or editing equipment, or had ever storyboarded, written a script, or had any involvement in a film. I'm saying this carefully 'cause I don't want you to think I'm exaggerating how bad it is. The storyline is pitiful and makes no sense at all. The special effects are laughable, and I don't mean that they're low budget but they did what they could with them, they were actually the worst I've ever seen (like pitifully super imposed shots of flames when a building is supposed to be on fire). Instead of choosing actors, they chose rappers to play the parts of characters (snoop dogg himself has since acted well in a few films, but Fat Joe and Big Pun show they're complete and absolute lack of talent, as do the rest of the cast). There is absolutely nothing good about this film. I still feel like I'm not quite stating enough how bad it is, 'cause I've seen so many terrible and laughable films, but this is on a whole new level to anything I have ever seen. I am a big hip hop fan, and therefore have a certain amount of respect for Ice T and a lot of respect for Snoop Dogg, Fat Joe and Big Pun (RIP), but this should never have been made, and if you manage to get hold of a copy i urge you to burn it and therefore erase it from history, so there is no chance of anyone in the future seeing it and knowing that such disgustingly embarrassing things existed in our time.
