This film had attitude. I loved it. I must admit, I have a secret love for rap, at least really excellent rap. This movie takes you down the winding path of the group N.W.A. You get to see the triumphs and pitfalls of the music industry. You get to see Paul Giamatti, the whitest guy I know, handle a group of hardcore men from Compton. Which he doesn’t do a good job, plus who needs that guy anyway? I love, love and love the music in this film. It makes me want to go out and buy the soundtrack. All the actors did a great job, but I loved young Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. Eazy E also had a really hard role to play, but Jason Mitchell handled it perfectly. Okay, I’m straight outta things to say so I’ll just say, see this movie if you enjoy the music or just like a good music biography of an interesting time in the United States.
