Deserves a higher budget
17 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Good film, but 'Low Budget' doesn't begin to describe it. Horrible flat & grainy VHS-C look on my Dutch 'York Entertainment' DVD, - If your wedding video turned out like this, you'd sue. Sound non-existent at times, a real shame, as 'Straight Out Of Compton' is a nicely performed and directed tale that could have worked so much better with a higher budget. If the makers read this forum, perhaps they have an explanation for the sometimes unviewable nature of the film - Some sort of problem with the transfer? If there's a better version out there I'd buy it, but credit to them for working to the limits of such obvious restrictions.
