A Day in the Life covers the story of a gang of new yorkers pushing drugs and living fast. Life in the game in hard, and somethings about to go down. The whole movie is set to a hip-hop beat, with all the dialogue in the scenes being rapped along to the music.
I viewed it without knowing any of this information, or what to expect at all. I was not only surprised, but very impressed! The style of dialogue delivery serves only to heighten the tension throughout, with gun battles and all out war which builds steadily with rare respite.
There is an occasional hardware(weaponry) showcase as a testimony to just how much business the new yorkers mean, which was a bit pointless to be honest(although I did chuckle!).
There are some characters you will recognise, even more so if you have watched many gang related series on television(such as "The Wire"), it was nice to see some familiar faces.
As someone who dislikes the vast majority of hip-hop and a fair amount of rapping it's easy to see how some may dislike this movie. Having said that,personally I would recommend it as something different, unpredictable and quite simply a very interesting piece of work!
