New Release Review + PBJ Style!
This is going to be a little harsh. This movie sucked. The characters were one dimensional and self serving. Sean 'Puffy' Combs produced this and you can tell. It is so intent on glamorizing and honoring that you feel like you're being smothered by chinchilla coats and pummeled by gold rings. HOWEVER, Angela Bassett made me cry a little. And this little dude, Marc John Jefferies, was good. Other than those two, the cast was awful. I can understand that fans of Biggie and Brookland will probably eat this right up. The camera work and editing was trite.
A "C" grade -out of pity for this big dude getting shot at 24 years old. If he was still alive I'd give it a "D"
