As a battle rap fan
1 December 2018 | by rossclinton_24See all my reviews

I didn't go into this film with much expectations. It is good though. Well directed, shot and acted for the most part on what I would imagine wasn't much of a budget. This isn't a another 8 mile. 8 Mile was about the characters, this Is a movie about the battle rap scene, so it falls into a couple of traps such as awkward cameos from famous battle rap faces that were clearly thrown in for the sake of it so that battle rap fans could go "oh look there's *insert*". The plot is not the strongest but it does the job. The comedy & jokes are good, I laughed out loud a couple of times in a good way. It can be cringey and cheesey though, especially the last 30 mins. And unfortunately this film tries to go for "the deeper message" about cultural appropriation but keeps going for it then abandoning it and then coming back again. Some of the leftie angles this film went for I honestly thought were tongue in cheek until the movie progressed and I realised they weren't. All this said it was worth a watch, especially if you are a battle rap fan, it does show how this day and age this is more of a sport
