Trivia

The director Albert Pyun filmed The Wrecking Crew (2000), Urban Menace (1999) and Corrupt (1999) simultaneously at the same time, location and cast (with different rappers guest-starring). And that occasionally left the cast confused, not knowing what character in what movie they were playing from one scene to the next. The movies also share the same Ice-T soundtrack playing almost constantly through-out the running-time. See more »

One of the ten greatest films ever...
26 April 2002 | by (SLO) – See all my reviews

This movie ranks above any other movie ever made in history. It is a shame that it did not win an Oscar for best film. What was the academy thinking. I mean, with the monotone dialogue delivered by the actors actually made you feel like you were in the same intense situations with lots of guns and death, and saying great lines like "word" or fo sho." Not only was the acting great, but the cameras they used were hand held camcorders to add quality and make the movie more realistic. The set direction was beautiful too, with the random lighting every time the camera changed angles, it actually made you feel like you were in an empty warehouse with disco lights. And the movie score was excellent too. It contained great rap music that droned out and was exactly the same throughout the movie, which, again also led to realism because you know how there is always repetitive rap music playing whenever you pull out a gun. And, to top it off, the thing that makes the movie stand out above all others, is the 25 minute long opening credits that showed random clips that had nothing to do with the rest of the movie. Its like the directors were thinking, we need to have a random opening credit scene that would make the movie good because it would have nothing to do with the rest of the movie.

A true work of art.
