Something special - but not for everyone
9 June 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed it, it was a truly unique movie. All the dialogs are rapped and they rhyme through the whole time. The story was quite mediocre. It was OK but nothing special. There were a lot of gangster-rapper clichés and the women were all naked till almost naked. The acting wasn't the best, but some actors did it well, some didn't. Hip-Hop beats were the soundtrack of this movie, I liked that. The cameraman wasn't the most experienced but it was OK. The blood effects were quite cheap, there was a lot of shooting.

I liked it because I like Hip-Hop and I'm OK with all of those clichés. But if you are not somebody who enjoys this kind of culture you maybe shouldn't watch this. You can try but don't expect much, it's just that this whole movie is a big kind of rap musical which Hip Hop fans of course enjoy because it's the first of it's kind - as far as I know. Besides watching it really takes some concentration to get through the slang and understand all of it - especially if your not a native English speaker.
