    Broomfield excels in traveling down a rabbit hole of gangster rap and the mysteries surrounding two unsolved deaths that have shaped the music hip/hop industry ever since.

The complexity of the investigation and the trauma it has caused, especially on the Wallace side is detailed with brutal morality and respect.

    THEATRICAL CUT

    Bay excels with an outrageous and ridiculous action adventure epic that is so over the top and stupid, it just works perfectly. Willis doesn't necessarily have the emotional range or the chops for such a role but works incredibly well with the comedic tone. The supporting…

    A genuinely horrific film to sit through. The humour isn't here, the script is utterly barbaric in the sense of what it thinks is funny. Why Sandler aims at a generation of idiots that aren't here anymore make my head crumble. The film itself has a rags to riches story and somehow makes one of Hollywood's oldest and loved stories into a film I will never ever want to watch again. The person who…
