World Premier (possible (not really sure) spoiler)
24 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the world premier of this tonite in Ann Arbor, MI. The cast and crew were there and all. It was for the Ann Arbor International Film Festival.

I went in with no real expectations as I had never heard of the film or of any of the actors. I had only read a brief synopsis of it and decided it was worth the price of admission. I think it was definitely an OK film. There were some parts that dragged and you could totally tell that there were multiple hands guiding the production. Different scenes had completely different voices and tones. All in all it was a good film with some very bad and very good hip-hop. I'd have to say that DX was the worst rapper and that the scene of the movie, the scene of the night was the elderly man singing/rapping about how he ended up where he is. This is being perfectly honest, the scene is exceptional and makes the movie worth seeing.

The style of the film is a pseudo-documentary with a kind of cameraman taping people taping a documentary. As the viewer, we are along for the ride as an accomplice in the camjacking. It makes it more fun. Style-wise it was fresh and worked. Some of the acting was cheesy, B-Movie quality, but I think that was the effect they were going for.Towards the end of the film though, it seemed that the editor was having a seizure. The last 15-20 minutes of the film were debauch and filled with manic (drugs, sex, Hollywood) and quasi-unbelievable (how the "thugs" get their movie back) actions. The whole movie until this point was sleek and effective and the ending seemed rushed and contrived; as if the directors/writers/editors decided 81 minutes of running time was long enough and they needed to show the film fakers demise and the "thugs" resolution but didn't quite know how with the remaining time. I'd say this film was good on an enjoyment level. At times it makes you think and feel. I LOVED the poetry of the rappers words. At other times the movie made you question why a plot had to surround the rappers at all. Even still, I would not knock any of the actors as they did a fine job. Thanks for reading.
