Man, This Was More Cheddar than Velveeta...
4 October 2000 | by Sundown305See all my reviews

No wonder this movie was a $6.44 bargain-bin vid at Wal-Mart. This movie should've stayed on that store rack!

Ice-T must've needed money, because this movie was such as waste of time. The camera and lighting was some stuff from the '70s, and the plot (if you could find some inkling of a plot) was not only overused, but stretched to the max...

The characters were stereotypical, two-dimensional idiots trying to be gangsters. Now I have mad respect for Ice-T and Silkk the Shocker, but they could've done a helluva lot better than this. Ice-T has done better than this on "Players" and "Law and Order: SVU." And that was TV!

The only good part? The music. The beats was tight, and though there weren't a lot of tracks, the ones that were in there had your head bobbin', and it made you forget about the deplorable movie that you were watching...

So to wrap it up, don't expect "New Jack City 2" here. Hell, don't even expect a low-grade gangsta flick. This was lower than that...
