okay could have been better overshadowed by other films - OST is the best feature - espically the Ice's input.

A good movie

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but I thought the title was pretty badass so I was rather curious about it. Eventually, I must admit I was pleasantly surprised. For a directing debut, I must admit that Mario Van Peebles did a pretty good job. It was also a financial success and became the highest grossing independent feature of 1991 and it also launched the acting career of Ice T (o... read more

"Rewatched - May 28th. I rewatched "New Jack City" for the first time in many years and it really didn't hold up well for me. It is badly directed and it lacks subtlety. Some of the performances are very unconvincing - Ice-T is appalling and Wesley Snipes doesn't exactly shine in the lead role. Snipes lacks the menacing quality that the protagonist Leroy Brown ought to have had. For a far superior crime-gangster film, watch Abel Ferrara's "King of New York" (1990)."

"April 12 "Man a drug dealer is the worst kind of brother. I mean, he won't sell it to his sister. He won't sell it to his mother, but he'll sell it to one a his boys on the street." I have been into those hood films lately. I just really like how realistic and uncompromising they are. The casting had a few odd choices, but the actors that are the odd choices actually do a good job. Most notably is Judd Nelson. He did a good job playing a role that I wasn't sure if he would be able to pull of"

A good movie

“I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but I thought the title was pretty badass so I was rather curious about it. Eventually, I must admit I was pleasantly surprised. For a directing debut, I must admit that Mario Van Peebles did a pretty good job. It was also a financial success and became the highest grossing independent feature of 1991 and it also launched the acting career of Ice T (ok, maybe that wasn’t such a good thing but whatever...). Anyway, I thought it was a really solid gangster feature. It might not be really original but I liked how relentless, dark and violent the whole thing was. Of course, I have no idea if it was realistic or not but it felt pretty genuine. There was also a very solid cast (Wesley Snipes, Ice-T, Chris Rock, Mario Van Peebles, Michael Mic” read more
