No diamond in the rough, just straight up coal
26 January 2016 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

This movie was lame.

The script is so bad it's hard to believe that it even got financed, it starts out as a wannabe heist movie or something with a guy trying to maintain his million dollar lifestyle by committing various crimes then it turns into trying to push an extremely random 'blacklivesmatter' message, it's so all over the place it's hard to make sense of it all.

And the editing is horrendous, flashbacks from Diamond Ruff's (yes that's his birth-name) childhood at the most random of times which feels like it was just put in here and there because the actual script was so incoherent they needed to tie the knots together somehow so they just threw in a flashback here and a flashback there as a transition between scenes.

And the first 15 minutes focuses a lot on introducing a bunch of different characters, that most of them after another 15 minutes aren't even in the movie anymore (!?).

Acting-wise, I mean with a (supposed) script like this it doesn't really matter if the acting is great cause it can't help in this case but just to be clear it's not great.

I actually usually like Fredro Starr, I think he's one of the better rappers turned actors but the role he's playing is so full of contradictions it's hard to take him seriously because of that (and the script of course).

But overall he's the best actor in the movie, which isn't saying a lot cause the rest of the cast ranges from not so good to plain awful.

Originally I gave this one a 3/10 but after reading what I just said I realise it's not even worth that.
