Storyline

From director RZA comes the explosive CUT THROAT CITY, the story of four boyhood friends in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward who return after Hurricane Katrina to find their homes decimated, with no jobs, and no help from FEMA. Out of options, they reluctantly turn to a local gangster, who offers them one shot at turning their situations around - by pulling off a dangerous heist in the heart of the city. When the job goes bad, the friends find themselves on the run, hunted by two relentless detectives and a neighborhood warlord who thinks they stole the heist money.

Just a bad movie that's hard to keep on watching after 5 minutes
7 October 2020 | by freddy_at_homeSee all my reviews

This was a real letdown for me. What a piece of ****

I feel like I'm in a "bad-movie-spiral" at the moment. And because of Covid-19 we properly are!! Just do yourself a favor, believe the bad critics, like mine, and skip this. Or like the gangster in South Central always say: Puff Puff Pass! I'm outta here bro!

3/10 (Like a bad Steven Seagal movie) Wait, you know what, I'll give it 2/10!!!
