Can You Dig It?
Coming out around the same time as Straight Outta Compton, which also deals with a group of friends in crime filled Cali that has a ton of music, Dope was a bit overshadowed in early August when it hit theaters. Make no mistake though, this is a really good film. It’s highly entertaining, fast paced, and easily one of the most original screenplays of 2015 and perhaps of the past few years.
We follow a group of ‘nerds’ as they call themselves who are highly intelligent but also love 90’s rap and jamming out themselves as their own band Awreeoh. It just so happens that they get caught up in a dangerously tricky situation involving some ‘dope’. It’s fair to say that most of what happens in the film is a bit too coincidental, it is. But what I loved most was this group of nerds and their reactions to each coinciding event. Shameik Moore plays the lead character, Malcom, and he does so wonderfully. If Moore plays his cards correctly, I think we will hear about this kid for years to come.
More importantly, you really buy into the groups dynamic. It never feels fake even when the situation surrounding them gets to be far- fetched. But I guess that also brings me to one of my negatives which is that after the first half or so it turns into Malcom’s story. The first 45 minutes are great mainly because of the group’s various endeavors. It’s not a bad thing necessarily, it was just a tad less interesting. There’s also a message behind the film that arises around the last 15 minutes or so and I can definitely see where it would be jarring to people. It doesn’t take you out of the film per se but it is something you just have to accept.
So Dope’s first half is up in there in my most entertaining 45 minutes of 2015. The last hour is fine but it definitely brings the film down a notch. If anything, Dope is worth watching if you’re a fan of rap, a nerd, or you would like to see one of the best performances from someone who likely won’t even be considered for an Oscar. Or maybe you just want to check in and see how you’re favorite rappers Tyga and ASAP Rocky did on the big screen. Either way, check out Dope.
+Moore’s breakthrough role
+Original idea turns out to be so fun
+Nerds seem like actual nerds
-Second half takes a big dip in quality
If you don’t like it, You will at least enjoy it
I can honestly say that if you don’t love it, you will at least like it. The movie places Malcolm (Shameik Moore), in an unreal situation that will have you thinking, “What would I really do in this type of situation?” If you catch the jokes which is filled with young humor; mixed in with some reminders of childhood memories,then you will very much appreciate more than 3/4’s of the movie.
During the movie, Malcolm and his two friends keep you optimistic that it all will workout in the end. They’re different from their environment, they’re very retro,and they have the personality that matches the old skool feel that they portray. The movie soundtrack gives you the same vibe. Every time the music cues in, you feel as though you are in the film with them. Now the movie may not be as good of the 8 that I gave it, but the soundtrack is surely worth an extra point or two.
I must give A$AP Rocky a decent review. His role as Dom in the movie kept you wondering what was going on. Friend or Foe.. we may never really know. Maybe it’s both depending on how you view the film. He makes you hate to hate him but makes it so easy to do so!
This could be one of those summer sleeper movies (Movies that don’t get the attention that it deserves). I am not sure if the trailers entices anyone to see the movie though. I figured what potential the movie could have, so I decided to see it. It had some good comedy, but I am not exactly sure if it hit as hard as it could. The bright side is that it did do a good job with at least keeping a grin on your face. You also left the movie kind of confused and wanting to know just a little more. Other than that, if you are someone who wanted to see the movie, you will most likely enjoy the movie. If not, you will find something to like about it, at least one or two characters. This movie is not for everyone, but I will recommend it to the family who can handle maturity and the graphic nature of the film together. After all of that, I will give the movie and 8 out of ten. Great job to Shameik Moore, Kiersey Clemons, Tony Revolori, and the rest of supporting cast!
