A tragic story
19 December 2004
This movie surprised me in many ways starting from King David ( played by DMX) King is not the type of character people will fall for like Scarface who was an Anti-hero with remorse. Unlike belly, king David is more ruthless and has no pity for the ones he kills. DMX handles the character very well. Not only is he a hell of a good rapper, but he can bring out a performance in a movie that will impress some viewers. David arquette might seem overshadowed by the other actors,but he also plays an important part of this movie. Micheal ealy and Antwon Tanner who plays mike and blue are very likable, in fact they pretty much remind me of Tony Montana and Manolo in Scarface. Clifton powell who plays moon is one that you either love or hate. I just happened to find him a pimp like character who keeps his word, but cannot be trusted. The rest of the cast did an amazing job and the story is well done, but can be twisted at times that people will have to watch it two or three times to get it right. Overall, I think this is one of the best films I've seen and for those who like gangster movies, you won't be disappointed.

2pac forever!
3 August 2004
2pac along with Biggie was the main reason why I started listening to Rap. Not only did he have good music, but he also had a story to tell and it influences not only his fans, but other rap artists. This documentary was very interesting to watch and I was amased to see what a strong minded man he was, which is why I respect so even more after seeing this masterpiece. Eminem, 50 cent, Jada Pinkett smith and Snoop Dogg are one of the few that have expressed their feelings towards his death. It was a tragic moment that is defenately not forgotten, but he has left us more music that gives most of us the impression that he is still alive. From his childhood memories to his career, he explains it all in his own words. This is no doubt one of the best documentaries ever to be released.

Better than I expected.
25 May 2004
I was meant to see this movie when it came out, but there was'nt much time for me. Anyway after renting it and watching the movie, I thought it was a pretty good film. Steven Seagal that he still has a few tricks up his sleeve, though there was'nt much fighting but the action scenes were enough for me to be satisfied. I usually find Ja Rule over rated when it comes to rapping, but as an actor he impressed me and I hope he continues on making more movies, especially kurupt. Morris Chestnut did a fine job playing the villain and Nia peeples was a did great playing Morris' sexy sidekick. However this movie is no match for " Exit wounds", " Glimmer man" and "Cradle 2 the grave", but it is still worth a look. THUMBS UP!

Bad Boys II (2003)
As good as the first one, probably even better
19 July 2003
when I saw the trailer of this movie , the first thing that was on my mind was that I have to go see it. The actions scenes were much heavier than the first one, The jokes were hilarious and the chicks were hott, that includes ofcourse Gabrielle Union. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence make a great team together and they both bring the humour in the movie very well. I enjoyed it so much that I feel like seeing it again. Like the first one, this movie is a classic and you will enjoy watching every minuit of it.

9/10
a great action movie!
18 March 2003
This movie was very entertaining,I pretty much like the peformance of Jet Li with his martial arts skills.Thogh I am not saying he is the next Jackie Chan,but he still kicks ass. DMX is one of my favourite rappers, his acting may not be an oscar winning performance, infact I did'nt think it was that bad. But he is still fit to be an action star.He is more like the black version of Vin Diesel.Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson were hilarious and they both did a great job in the movie.Same goes to Mark Dacasos and the rest of the casts.

Belly (1998)
a very good movie!
29 October 2002
when I read the reviews,I thought that maybe I should'nt see the movie,but I was desperate to rent it since DMX was in it.When I finished watching the movie,I thought that the people were full of crap.This movie was a great example of real life and it had a very good and touching ending.10/10

Bullet (1996)
pretty disappointing
29 October 2002
don't give me wrong,I like 2pac.I've seen one of his other movies and they were great.But this was not really my taste.The story line was good,The performence of tupac and Mickey Rourke were amaizing,but it did'nt seem to be very interesting.This is probably one of the worst crime movie I ever saw.

Above the Rim (1994)
brilliant!
29 October 2002
this was one of tupac's best movie ever.The story line was great and so was his peformence.I enjoy basketball and for those of you who are a huge fan of the sport or watching ghetto movies.Go to the video store and rent,you will like this movie so much that you would want to see it over and over again.

The One (2001)
10/10
great movie!
23 November 2001
this was a great matrix movie.I enjoyed every fighting scene that was in it.Though a lot of you might not like it because there is one part were it can be a little confusing so at the same time you would have to listen to get the point of the story,but you should understand the story already.If you like the Matrix,you would also love this one.i give this movie a 10.

5/10
I always liked gangster movies,but this one was poor!
19 September 2001

Bait (2000)
great action/comedy
17 September 2001
this movie is one of the best action/comedy ever.Jamie foxx was pretty funny and he also proves that he is also a man of action.This movie reminded me of the other action movie with will smith which is enemy of the state.I don't think that anyone would say no to this movie,for those who likes action/comedy. I give this movie a 10/10.

3/10
two thumbs down!
17 September 2001
this was one of the worst action movie I ever saw.First of all,I never heard of a guy named Jason patric and I was quiet dissapointed because Keanu Reeves was'nt there,there was'nt much action in it.This was like a titanic movie.You only see people running around,screaming like maniacs and dying on the ship that was going really fast.I give this movie a 3/10.

Pulp Fiction (1994)
9/10
cool movie
17 September 2001
at first I did'nt want to see this movie,because a lot of people said it sucked.My father said it to him it was pretty good.Anyway I manage to watch it and my father was right,it was pretty good.Now I know why some people did'nt like it.It was a bit to complicated to understand what was going on.I had a hard time understanding it,but then I started getting the point of the story.I give this movie a 9/10.

great movie!
14 September 2001
when I saw the first part,i enjoyed and I also had a feeling that the second one would probably come out.When I heard that this movie was gonna come out,the first thing I thought was that I had to see it.I was unlucky because I did'nt see it in theaters.I rented the movie and it was great,more action and more characters.Thought I was quite disappointed because sektor,stryker,kabal and kung lao was'nt in it.I give this movie a 9/10

6/10
its just not the same!
12 September 2001
The only thing I like about this movie is that it has a lot of action in it,but its not the same thing as the video game. Another thing is that to me it was a bad idea that they put Raul Julia to play bison.They should have put someone else who has fighting skills.I give this movie a 5/10.

Exit Wounds (2001)
two thumbs up!
11 September 2001
I've never been a big fan of steven segal especially his movies,the only movie that I found great was marked for death.When I saw the preview of exit wounds,it looked pretty good.I was disappointed cause I could'nt watch in on big screen.But I manage to see it at a friends house and boy he really kicks ass.He was like the matrix.DMX is one of my favourite rappers,I am a big fan of his music,he did a great job in this movie and like steven,he could really kick some ass.I give this movie a 10/10.

Cast Away (2000)
BORING!
10 September 2001
this is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.I can't deny how good the acting was,but the only person you see in the movie the whole time is Tom Hanks talking to a volleyball named wilson.And the most disappointing part of this movie is the ending. I rate this one a 4/10.
