What did I just watch?

This movie rating is 8.7. Don't believe the hype. My guess is the people associated with making this film gave it all 10s. I gave it 2 stars. The film has no plot or story line at all. None of the characters were worth rooting for or caring about. I guess one of the characters trying to be a rapper is what the writer "thought" is a plot, but no. A stereotypical over used stable in a lot urban films. I've seen low budget films that turn out to be gems, this isn't one of them. The acting was atrocious.
