It's Better Than Urban Menace And State Property.
19 May 2005 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"Survival Of The Illest" is a decent urban drama. It's better than such genre fare as "State Property" or "Urban Menace". It's not as good as "Juice" Or "Gang Tapes". There is no plot. It's just a bunch of scenes cobbled together with rappers "acting". The gunfight in the beginning is funny because homeys get shot and forget they are hit and there's no motivation for the gunfight at all. What I don't like about this movie is that there is one scene at a pool hall that just never ends.

However, what I like about this movie is that there is less editing tricks than "Belly". This movie should tide your homey cravings until "State Property 2" comes out on video.
