I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Straight Outta Compton’, it had me gripped all the way through. That’s despite me having little to no knowledge of N.W.A, I knew of their name and of Ice Cube and Dr. Dre but basically zilch about their actual story. I couldn’t comment on how true it is to history, but as a film it’s fantastic.
You have great performances from O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell and Paul Giamatti. Mitchell impressed me most as Eazy-E, while the casting of Jackson as Ice Cube – his father, of course – was a masterstroke. All the cast do very well, in truth.
I love how gritty the film is too, it feels real – at least as real as film can get. There is some neat cinematography in there, while the music is entwinned nicely. The pacing is almost perfect, aside from a few moments in the middle. I also rate how it all ends, in terms of the story but also with the end credits. There’s heart in there.
**The rise of the Rap music!**
There were lots of debate over this film’s snub from the Oscars, but I’m not here to talk about that. As a film, it was awesome and as a biographical film, even more awesome, but not an inspiring film that I was expecting. There were many bad things in it, like the language and character portrayals. Though hats off to the filmmakers for rendering the it with the bold contents. I don’t know if it being true to the actual events, but anybody can feel how those circumstances would have been for those involved in the real.
One thing is for sure, the film is not for the families. The first half was the reason which was very negatively appealed, particularly the racism and police abuse preoccupied rather than telling the actual story. But the next half was much better. I liked it because of that part which crafted so brilliantly. That’s where the real journey begins. Well played characters, everybody who repressed those real ones were done incredible job.
This film revealed something I did know. Like how the Rap music got so popular. I quite belong to the same generation where this thing got its revolution. It was like another ‘Lords of Dogtown’ where the young guys made skateboards popular, but here it was the Rap songs. It was a two and half hour long film, longer than an average film length, but the pace was good. Except the strong contents, the narration never looked dull. I totally enjoyed watching it, a good film for adults, particularly those who love Rap music must not think of missing it.
A great movie
When reading other reviews about this movie, I really get frustrated due to the lack of understanding about what this movie is really about. A lot of empty reviews only giving 1 star due to “explicit sexual content, and black men who does not respect the law”.
What people does not seem to understand is that this is a movie about the rise, and fall of the biggest rap group ever, how they evolved and what power, money, and fame can to a man (and in this case, his relationship to his friends). As much as anything, this movie really is a lot about the abuse that a lot of black males experienced from the police in the 80’s (which is still a very relevant topic).
Personally I am a big fan of N.W.A, without that being the reason I am rating this movie 9/10. It is a really interesting true story about some of THE great rap artists of our generation. Great performances by actors who looks a lot like the original group, as well as Paul Giamatti. Great directing, the movie has a really nice action curve, keeping things interesting throughout the movie, and really gives the public a good insight of the life of some of the biggest stars in the world during the 80’s/90’s.
This is the first time i have ever written an review on IMDb, even though I have a lot of strong opinions about movies, but I really had to come to this movies defence. This is one of those movies I am really expecting to see a 8,3 star rating or something similar, and it really frustrates me to see a lot of people giving this movie unnecessary hate. GREAT MOVIE, if you like N.W.A, it is really worth your while, and if you are not, it is still worth a watch just because of the really intriguing true story that “Straight Out Of Compton” is.
11/10 will watch again
Hip Hop fans will like this
I’ll come clean and say that I generally liked this film because I love hip hop; particularly from the late 80’s through to the late 90’s. I was interested in the character portrayal, the music was great and as a hip hop fan it was interesting.
Honestly, as a film it was pretty bad really. The acting is terrible, it’s an hour too long and I find it a bit weird that Cube and Dre are bigging themselves up massively and they are the producers. I can’t imagine that anyone that does not like hip hop would even begin to like this film in the slightest. It’s very boring towards the end and it’s just a series of really weird scenes all cut together.
I’m not sure why it’s doing so well with the critics, but I expect that the timing is great with Dre’s new album and the Apple Music stuff. Either way, if you like hip hop you’ll like this for a lot of reasons. If you don’t, this is likely to be the worse film you’ll ever see!
