In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had: their music. Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural rebels-armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent-stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world's most dangerous group, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today. Written by

The cover of "Straight Outta Compton" is shown with a "Parental Advisory - Explicit Content" label in a 1980s news segment. This variation of the advisory label was not used until the mid 1990s, and the original releases of the album had a much smaller advisory label. See more »

I am not a big fan of N.W.A and their music does not interest me. I have to admit that after seeing this movie I was overwhelmed with dismay. It is true that the media and the movie critics have been slanting the news to trap us into seeing this film.
Alas what a boring film!.
From the beginning to end,this documentary movie about five black rappers failed to impress me.
Off course this movie deserves a fair NC17 rating,but the explicit sex and the bad language did not offend me since I am an adult.
What I strongly hated about this movie is that it indirectly promotes racism and hatred against black people for in this movie are represented as ruthless and immoral rebels .
Sorry to tell you that (Straight Outta Compton) is a movie you should avoid if you do not want to waste your time and lose your money.
