OK heres the deal. If you do not want to read a bashful review. Don't read this then. If so, read on. I will only make out a few points. If i were to write a full review you would be here all day reading.
The plot of this movie is so straight forward that it seems that it was derived from a rap song. Honestly it was rubbish and if you don't believe me watch it. (btw you know that movie they showed in the ring (the horror movie). Where you die if you watch it. Well this is what they were talking about)
As for the acting. Well think Drew Barrymore meets Paris HIlton. Extreme maybe, but nonetheless revleant. I cannot think of a movie which has had a gun battle where all the people involved stand around and shoot at point blank range mind you. AND MISS. They empty eniter clips and not one shot lands. Not one cop rocks up. And not one single person ducks in cover. See the reason why this bothers me is because they (the producers) were trying i assume to keep this movie real. And in doing so missed the point. This is meant to be movie on gangsters right? And from what it seems the directing missed that. This was more a movie on how not to shoot than to. Look if you have seen this movie you will get the idea.
Secondly the dumbest use of people in the movie. Each cut scene a new rapper or singer would be there. Making it seem more like a comerical than an acutaly cast of actors. Look in plain language stay away from this like the plague. All people involved should have had some acting lessons rather than making fake cut scenes. Saying lines is not acting. Acting is also an emotive thing.
PLEASE STOP THESE MOVIES. By the way: holding a gun sideways does not make you look cool. It makes you stupid.
