Scarface: Origins of a Hip-Hop Classic (2003)

** (out of 4)

Sean Combs, Russell Simmons, Kevin Liles, Capone, N.O.R.E., Mr. Cartoon, Hassan Johnson, Method Mann, Snoop Dogg, Prodigy, Nas and Eve are among the people interviewed for this 20-minute featurette, which takes a look at SCARFACE and its influence on the ghetto. I'll admit that I'm probably not the targeted audience for this film but at the same time I must admit that I found a few of the comments rather scary. I can understand the fact that the hip-hop community loves this movie but I have to say that it was rather scary seeing certain people discuss this Al Pacino character as if he's something to look up to. The drug dealing, the killing and so on seems to be overlooked by most people or some even seem to not have any problem with it because he was doing what it took to get rich. I guess these people feel that it's okay to kill and sell drugs as long as you get rewarded. This is a well-produced feature and there's no question that it offers up an interesting insight into the film but I still can't say I felt too good at the end of it.
