NWA & Eazy-E: The Kings of Compton full movie review - Cheap, shoddy and pointless.
This is a low budget, sanitized and very poor documentary.
No music from the artist(s), which is always a bad sign, no new interviews with any of the major players, although I do have to admit that I didn't watch the last 15 minutes because I couldn't take the blandness anymore, so maybe they got one in that last section, but I doubt it.
A string of C list, seemingly connected, 'stars" mumble anodyne, largely pointless stories to camera, interspersed with often duplicated images of NWA, the occasional original interview clip, live clips with no music, and worst of all, present day, cheesy reenactments, shot in black and white and featuring the worst cast of lookalikes you could possibly imagine. A repeated scene is someone supposed to be Dre sitting at a mixing desk, with clearly no idea what he's doing, while someone sits next to him, waving a hand gun in time to the (fake) music.
It is painfully awful, obviously a cash in on the recent biographical movie. It's a great subject for a documentary, but this is a hack job done on the cheap.
