I wasn't expecting this to be so good
3 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

I picked up a copy of Rampage at my local DVD store because I thought it was a movie, not a documentary. The idea of a movie about rappers coming back from the Iraq war and seeing parallels with their own war-torn suburbs was interesting.

As soon as it started I saw it was in fact a documentary, and I got a sinking feeling that I had been duped. I re-checked the DVD case and in tiny lettering at the bottom of the back cover there it was "documentary".

I continued watching anyway, and pretty soon I was enthralled. The documentary was bizarre for a few reasons. First off I wasn't expecting a documentary about US rappers to be written by an Australian, nor was I expecting to see anything new in a film about gang violence in the United States.

The documentary is set mostly in a poor mainly African American suburb in Miami. I had no idea Miami was as racially divided as it apparently is.

Documentary maker George Gittoes follows a US soldier he met while filming footage in the Iraq war. The soldier had told Gittoes his hometown was just as dangerous as Iraq, so the Australian journalist wanted to find out for himself.

It seems the soldier wasn't lying, and we see first hand how people in his suburb live, and how they cling to rapping as their one chance to get the hell out of there, especially one rather cute, troubled 14-year-old.
