Documentary feels more like a emotional promo for LAX, but it's good.
14 September 2012 | by (Northwest Ohio) – See all my reviews

I think this documentary came during a time in Game's life when he felt he had to get more vulnerable and genuine as he released his upcoming album "LAX," which was released just two weeks after this film came out. To emphasize this raw emotion shown in certain scenes in this documentary, he had to show himself being slightly more humbling and introverted during these interviews. It was a nice change to see the contrast from his character on his albums, a rough-and-ready gangster thug willing to die by the gun in the name of the blood-red rags he claims.

I felt the stories were interesting, but at times, they felt extremely one-sided, especially without interviews from other rap industry heads being interviewed about how Game affected the industry. There was only a small amount of talk of his athletic days, skirting past his expulsion from college. The stories of G-Unit and 50 Cent were all from his viewpoint, so there wasn't really anything to compare the situation to. And when Dr. Dre signed him, he was on camera talking about how Dre heard the first bar in a song and signed him right then and there. Is this the truth? Who's to say.

One-sided stories aside, though, I am a fan of his music and his character, both on and off-stage, and I respect him coming clean with some pretty hard-to-manage family tales and perspectives. Some have reviewed this documentary negatively on rap-oriented sites, criticizing the emotional moments of the interviews to try and sway the U.S. viewers. However, I had no issue with these moments, and I think fans will appreciate the man even more after watching this. It may be better categorized as a promo video rather than a documentary, though.
