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

A good movie

I wasnโ€™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

" The gangster Nino has a gang who call themselves Cash Money Brothers. They get into the crack business and not before long they make a million dollars every week. A cop, Scotty, is after them. He tries to get into the gang by letting an ex-drug addict infiltrate the gang, but the attempt fails miserably. The only thing that remains is that Scotty himself becomes a drug pusher. The film was considered to be stylishly directed by Mario Van Peebles, New Jack City offsets its melodramatic strea"

" First Viewing Viewing Date: November 6th Via: iTunes Store Plot: A crime lord ascends to power and becomes megalomaniacal while a maverick police detective vows to stop him. Rating: 7.2/10 Why Did I Watch It? It was cheap on iTunes, I've wanted to see it for some time, and it seemed appropriate after Menace II Society and Dead Presidents."

"First viewing - Feb. 15th I can't honestly say why I didn't watch this back in the '90s, but regardless I skipped it. Turns out it was almost perfectly timed, as the day after I saw it was Ice T's birthday. It's an interesting and entertaining film, following both Snipes's character's gang as they rise to power and the undercover cop working to bring them down. There's some excellent social commentary about how the justice system works, and I really appreciated that aspect the most. Snipes chew"
