Great rendition of a 90's hip hop movie.
5 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. The music was great and made me want to go out and get the soundtrack like we used to in the 90's. I thought it was a good rendition of how a 90's hip hop movie would have been filmed. Good storyline I hope they make it into a series. I'm a huge fan of Wood Harris, Mack Wilds and Method Man. I can't remember the ladies name who played the lead but she played her role very well. I was an a true fan of The Wire so to see these characters on camera again was exciting. Once I saw the clip I couldn't wait to see The Breaks. I think you should check it out and keep in mind that its portraying the 90's hip hop scene... I wanted more when it ended so I hope to see a series or part two picking up where it left off.
