A Confusing and poorly acted movie
21 February 2000 | by CharltonBoySee all my reviews

Mojo is a strange film in the sense that everyone seemed to be trying to out act each other which lead to some very poor acting especialy from the actor who played "Baby" and the actor who played "Skinny" ( i dont know what accent he was trying to do but it definately was not a London one!). The story is about a night club and the fight between owner and gangsters of who should have ownership of up and coming Star Silver Johnny not for career reasons but for sexual ones. The script could have been handled so much better but having said that it is very watchable. 6 out of 10
