The Hit -- Missed!
1 August 2011 | by rwhite26See all my reviews

This story was suppose to be the sequel to "Straight Out Of Compton" a film also directed by Ryan Combs, but it was missing everything that made the first one so good. Humor! Yes it was an cast upgrade (Blair Underwood, James Russo, Al B Sure ) but the term "polishing a turd" comes to mind. To many silly story lines. I think they were suppose to be plot twist. The element of playing music thru every scene was as corny in this one as it was in the first one. (Both movies had good music though, but in almost every scene? Smh) The script was bad. "How did Drake get in the closet and get away without being seen?" I know it's a B movie but I didn't believe it for a second. I remember Robert Townsend in Hollywood Shuffle give Dirty Larry the finger. I think that's what I'll give this one.
