Not as bad as you think...
13 October 2007 | by zeppieri_09See all my reviews

When I heard about this movie I thought it was going to be bad for sure not because it was a Bone Thugs-N-Harmoney movie, but because it's NOT a documentary. Once I heard it wasn't a documentary I was disappointed because I wanted some insight into Bone Thugs before they blew up.

With that aside, this movie actually surprised me. I put it on at 1am and it actually kept me up until the end. It started off a bit slow and feels a little bit artificial in the beginning but it picks up. Layzie gives a GREAT performance, followed by Krayzie. Wish, although being one of my favorite Bone Thugs, is just not an actor. Luckily he doesn't get as much screen time.

I was amazed at how well they made this movie work considering the plot is absolutely horrible. This is what makes the movie seem a little far-fetched at first. It's a very predictable plot and there aren't many twists. And yes, Bizzy and Flesh are absent in this movie, not even a mention of their names. Now before people get mad at Bone Thugs remember Bizzy might have asked not to be put in the movie.

Regardless, it was a good "Menace II Society" type movie considering the lack of those movies today. Although nowhere near as good and as real as those movies back in the day, it was done well overall. It's a must-see for any Bone Thugs-N-Harmoney fan. 7/10.
