Judge the documentary, not the man.
18 February 2019 | by jthrasher-23680See all my reviews

This documentary is put together very well. If you read most of the reviews it will be made obvious that they are about Suge Knight himself. The documentary uses 2 main elements, Suge Knight's own words and documentation to substantiate his claims. A review should be unbiased. Not being able to stomach the main character is a irrelevant. Don't watch the documentary if you cannot stomach it's content and definitely don't write a review for a film you didn't finish. It's a shame that people cannot get passed their own self righteousness and judgements to learn about a culture they know so little about. They just end up building metaphorical walls.
