| Just Amazing. Doesn't matter if you are hiphop fan or not
I try to make it quick this time. Watch this movie. It is easily one of the best I have seen in a long time and I was skeptical with all the praise it got beforehand. But it is well deserved. The three lead actors are amazing as well as the direction. Yes you see them "fight" the police but this is not a political film. This is a drama.

It is about friendship, about self-fulfillment, about creating something and about how greed destroys everything. It has been a long time that I sat in a movie theater and you could feel how much respect and love everybody in the audience has for this film. You don't need to love HipHop to enjoy this incredible movie.
