Ali G is an excellent script writer.
22 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

In his first full length movie Ali G has done wonderfully well. He has managed to transpose his everyday life from back home in Staines to the ghetto of Jamaca man.

The acting is first class. Capone is all class he reminds me of a young Clint Eastwood in this flick. Let me tell you his career is going to skyrocket (remember you heard it first here!).

The plot is intriguing and complicated -to complicated to describe here, but let me just say there is a lot of shooting!

I reccomend anybody who enjoyed this film should see "Pay It Forward" or "The Importance of being Ernest".

this is nick. signing off. untill next time. stay cool you batty boys.
