One of the worst movies ever made
9 July 2012 | by (Ålesund, Norway) – See all my reviews

I started to watch this movie with no expectations at all, still it actually managed to disappoint me.

You're Nobody 'til Somebody Kills You is basically a film about a serial killer killing a bunch of hip hop rappers one at a time, with a small knife by the way. The plot is incredibly awful, but it gets worse. The actors are as credible as a clown fish would be portraying the same roles, the script is horrible and a baby straight from kindergarten would do better in cinematography. The murder scenes looks like a Z-budget slasher film from the 70's.

Unless this movie is a parody of everything great about movies, then this is one of the worst examples of filmmaking ever. Don't spend a second with this movie, since it won't work as sleeping medicine either, since the first five minutes will make you cry and scream all night over the truly horrible filmmaking.
