Very Well Done!
11 February 2017 | by gpruwitmandymae-77-32637See all my reviews

Kudos BET and the cast of this amazing biopic. I was so immersed during the entire series and fell in love with New Edition's Story. BET please keep doing these with other artists and groups. This was excellent! The cast was so believable playing all of the members of the group. The younger actors did so well in their portrayal of NE's beginnings and the older team took it to the next level. I also loved that most of the cast was new. I loved that all the NE members were on board during the entire project coaching everyone on how to depict their lives. I loved the candidness of the story and how the message was about the strong bond of friendship and loyalty no matter what the circumstances were. They always found a way to get back to NE and that's commendable.
