Mimi Moss & Hassan Johnson shine
14 September 2008 | by tedthumbSee all my reviews

I Tried is a movie about what if Bone Thugs N Harmony never got discovered by legend Eazy- E from N.W.A? I agree with the poster from Canada that this story would have made a interesting documentary. Some storys do not need to me made up. Bone Thugs N Harmony have one of those storys.

I Tried was entertaining. Mimi Moss is a beautiful and talented actress. Her appearance as Lisa married to Wish Bone was stellar. Wish Bone surprised me with his acting. He seemed like a natural. I enjoyed the story of Lisa and a struggling Wish Bone trying to make it in a tough economy. Many of us can relate that to that nowadays.

Hassan Johnson shined as bad guy drug dealer KP. I've watched this actor on The Wire. He is the real deal. To bad the director did not show more of KP in the movie. KP has a glorified cameo role instead of a meat and potato role. I hope to see more of Wish Bone, Mimi Moss, and Hassan Johnson in other movies. They are to good to not get more movie parts.
