Shot largely in Three 6 Mafia's hometown of Memphis, TN, Choices examines the conflict between right and wrong and is based on the life of an ex-convict and the choices that he makes trying to get his life on the right track.

Choices 2: The Setup continues the storyline from the first movie, placing DJ Paul and Juicy J as the main characters. Whether or not this was a mistake is up to the viewer.
Anyway, the story goes something like this: Paul and J are crooks that get ratted out by a friend and are put to a task by corrupt feds in the hopes of scoring a bust for their own personal gain. As our "heroes" climb the criminal ladder of success, they slowly work a scheme to get the feds back for putting the in that position in the first place. The idea to bring the characters back after the ending of the first film was inventive, but with little action, no evolving plot and even worse acting from the supporting cast, what we are left with is some nice cinematography and laughable character development.
Being a fan of Hypnotize Minds, I was disappointed with this film. For those that don't know about the Memphis recording label the cult following it carries, this will probably leave many in the wind as to why this film was made at all. The first Choices was a story of struggle and fighting for what you believe in. The acting was so-so, but at least the script offered more than the usual rapper movies. This film is just another downer for ghetto cinema, offering nothing that appeals to the average Joe, or even the "brothers" that reside in American ghettos. Paul and J really don't act but carry on conversations between themselves for the duration of the film. Furthermore, the base storyline and the fact that you have to buy this movie with the soundtrack (which is the worst release I've ever heard from Three 6 Mafia)will leave those that purchased this to wonder what gave HCP the idea to market this at all. Hopefully the new Choices movie, which will feature my favorite HCP artist Project Pat, will go further than this.
In short, stay away from this sequel, enjoy the first and keep supporting the Hypnotize Camp Posse
