The setting has been taken from the hots streets of Barcelona and is now in scorching urban Philadelphia. This time Carmen Brown is an aspiring actress who in her own words ‘leaves the whole town speechless.’ Her sultry looks and carefree confidence attract the attention of everyone from crooked cop Luietenant Miller to famous rapper Blaze. However Carmen has eyes on the one man she can’t have- Seargeant Derrick Hill who is engaged. Yet nothing stops Carmen Brown getting what she wants- except perhaps a trip to LA and an ominous tarot cards prophecy.
Plot: An engaged Philadelphia policeman falls in love with a beautiful woman while dealing with a corrupt superior.

Not what I expected
As a avid lover of opera, my first reaction was one of distaste– a stuck-up response, I’ll admit. My thoughts were like many others: Where does MTV get off screwing around with once of the most beloved operas of all time?
I did decide to watch it however, trying to keep an open mind. I was actually rather pleased by the performances and really taken with the style of filming. It didn’t try to be something it’s not (which I can really appreciate). It’s edgy quality was sensitive enough to the original story that I found myself actually enjoying the production. Not being a fan of rap or hip hop in general, I was surprised by how much I was NOT offended. You can even hear small bits of Bizet’s music weave in and out of the fabric. It had it’s week moments, and was by no means a great movie, but it was unique, and I can appreciate that. I can also appreciate how this type of “hip hopera” may actually reach some people who would never think of watching traditional opera (just as I had never considered watching a rap artist sing over Bizet’s melodies). I recommend this movie because of it’s uniqueness and because it honestly wasn’t all that bad!
Pretty Good, Done Well
In my opinion, this movie was done quite well. It’s story goes along pretty well with it’s original opera version by Georges Bizet. But Lil Bow Wow was a bad idea, he was just there for product placement in my opinion, and the song sang with him when they are in prison doesn’t occur in the real opera (Don Jose sings by himself), but the song’s meaning is similar. The only thing that vexed me is the fact that the ending is different that the “Real” ending in the opera. I won’t give any spoilers but both are done well and Da Brat narrating was a good idea. The lead parts (Beyonce and Mekhi) are done exceptionally well with Beyonce playing Carmen beautifully, capturing especially the sexuality and Mekhi capturing the emotion and love.
