Storyline

Three notorious gangsters wage a bloody battle for supremacy in the City of Brotherly Love. Beans, the imprisoned kingpin and hometown drug lord, struggles to keep his renegade ABM Crime Syndicate on the map. He is driven and consumed by a festering hatred for his longtime rival. Dame, the Harlem-born hustler, is also the top dog in town. His Umbrella network is unmatched in cash-flow and manpower. With a long list of enemies seeking territory and revenge, the self-proclaimed "cakeaholic" is forced into a vicious war. Loco, the flashy Miami playboy, is about to be released from prison. His deep pockets and stellar reputation prove to be valuable tools in Loco's plot to take over the streets of Philly. But he must first overcome the ghosts from a turbulent past. Alliances are formed and shattered, and lifelong friendships are put to the test as the various crews deal and duel to the death. Somewhere, buried deep within the ranks of one of these gangs, a ruthless criminal mastermind is ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Twice as good as the original
5 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In a movie, which starts off with a pitiful retcon, plot barely registers as an meaningful ingredient. After the graphic death of Beans (Beanie Sigel) during his own trial, which punctuated the badness of the first part, it turns out that the gangsta was just playing and you know... that never really took place. Hence we follow Beans inadvertent incarceration and his laughable attempts at leading his crime empire from prison. Two other criminal mastermind-wanabees also feature - Dame (Damon Dash) and El Pollo Loco (Noreaga). Full with constant voice-over, where we find out the intricate thought processes, which take up most of our antiheroes comprehensive and intellectual capabilities, leaving them with little or nothing left to actually think through their actions.

During the movie we are introduced to some prison code, when Beans discusses business with his crew. 'Surprise parties' are nothing more than gang-organised armed robberies and honestly by the end of the movie the gut feeling is that you have just partaken been the victim of such a party - robbed of time and energy. It must be however said, that despite everything Damon Dash's movie is significantly better directed, than the first part and the story is much more cohesive, even though plot devices are poorly used. Nonetheless he even attempts a plot twist, which however signalised it may have been, actually provided a backdrop for some passable build-up.

Cinematography and to a very limited extent acting (overly self-serving and contrived) is much improved, which shows some professionalisation of the filmmaking process was achieved.

Within a few days of watching the movie is already blurry, so I'm rather certain that the only signature proof of my ever viewing "State Property 2" will be this review.
