don't read all the stupid 1 and 2 star comments, bunch of trolls, you can clearly tell by their comments about this movie being a musical and how it would have been better without certain scenes. this is an ADAPTION of real events, some may be changed/exaggerated or what have you. Watch it and enjoy it and leave your prejudice and ignorance at the door.
A must see for all ages !!!
this movie was dope!
The one review... Can't understand when they speak American?!?! What? Some advise stop writing reviews! This movie as expected is violent and like in most songs has swearing....shocker. It's great well done and tells the story of how NWA came to be. If you don't like rap.... Stay Home!!!
Watched it 10 times and counting
Needs english subtitles in some parts. Some parts are hard to understand when the characters are speaking american.
I'm going to see this movie again. This will be my 4th time.
5 stars . Most def the best movie of the year. It was a little long but it didnt matter. Ice cubes son did a good job acting out his father. I laughed at the actor playing snoop dogg he looks nothing like him lol.
Great script, great actors, non-stop drama and comedy!
One of the best movies I've seen in a long time. It's a movie that everybody should see. Very well done.
Never realized what they went through at the time. How culturally racist people are in some areas of the world. Dictates how the power of one versus the power of many proves to be stronger willed. Hats off to these young men for standing up against authorities wrong doings and proving themselves worthy like any other.
My,my, aren't we all so politically correct. Why do some people feel the need to idolize gangsters?
Wow, I never thought I would like this movie because I'm a senior and I don't listen to tht kind of music. It's well executed with a good storyline, even if you have no idea this is base on a true story. I would watch a second time .
Amazing! I do not listen to rap, never did and I truly enjoyed this movie. It was well made and the actors were great.
Given all the violence and degradation of women it's easy to see why this is so popular.
I love this movie so much. I am so happy they showed us their story, but of course there's always gotta be people who hate. If its not your style then why go see it in the first place? Like they said any publicity is good publicity :)
LOVEDD IT!! Felt so liberated afterwards!!??
Great movie, one of the best for the year! Just shows you with hard work no matter where you come from you can make it, follow your dreams.
Sheer Brilliance! i personally had the same smug attitude as Tom Brokaw, NBC News Anchor, towards NWA's artistic lyrics and expression. After watching Straight Outta Compton, i now recognize NWA as creative geniuses reflecting the darkness of a margenalized and stereotyped group.
Violent - too much crappy rap - women degraded - this movie STINKS.
Fantastic movie! I don't like profanity; however, it was not gratuitous but simply reflects the way people on the streets and in these neighbourhoods speak. I'm not sure why some individuals keep referring to the movie as a musical which it clearly is not. Although familiar with a lot of the music, I was not that familiar with NWA and I still got a lot from the movie. It speaks of social and economical injustice as it relates to power, racism, breaking stereo types and is so much more than just a movie that you watch and leave the theatre thinking that "it was entertaining." I strongly recommend seeing this movie and keep an open mind as well as comparing many of the themes to what is still happening in society today.
great movie, got watch!!!
Best song: A B*tch Iz a B*tch.
Made me pine for Grease 2. :(
Very good you saw everything how they started to how they finished very powerful and hits hard with a punch a great movie about music history make sure you see this one
Very talented group of men.
This movie should be shown in every classroom in America.
I actually enjoyed this one, wasn't expecting much going into it, but I came away very suprised! Well worth it!
I normally don't post reviews but I thought this movie deserved 5 stars. I didn't have high expectations going in to it but I was pleasantly surprised. The actors did a great job and the story line was captivating. I'm glad I went. I would recommend it!
This movie was great...shows the rise of these stars and great background information about an important group of young men...
the actors should have been singing all of their lines, that would have made this more believable as a musical.I was very disappointed with the historical inaccuracies of this film ,mc gusto wasn't in this film at all!very poor screen adaptation!
This is the worst movie ever made, Cb4 is way better !( I'm black y'all!)
Hopefully the success of this movie will lead to a bio of Vanilla Ice, arguably the greatest rapper of them all.
Why are there No Women Allowed?
Could have done without the coarse language and gang violence, not to mention the degradation of women.
Had such a good time at this! These guys have influenced everyone from 2 Live Crew to Justin Bieber! Everyone in the theater was singing along word for word!
Dreamgirls has it all over this needlessly violent and noisy musical; better songs, better cast, better movie.
Don't watch this movie unless you know the background of the film. People giving this one star because they think this is a musical or family movie are pretty dumb. Do your research before watching the movie. This is based on the true story of the pioneers of gangster rap. So you should know where this is going. These guys are legends in the hip hop scene, and if that's not your cup of tea don't watch it. Nwa does not stand for No Women Allowed. It stands for N****S With Attitude. Anyone under 35 probably don't know who they are but, they will know members of the group like Dr. DRE, and Ice Cube. These guys came before Tupac and Biggie and inspired those legends.
Worth the price of admission if only to see the "Jem and the Holograms" teaser.
I really liked this movie. ITS NOT a MUSICAL people...it s a biopic of NWA. If you don't know who they are or listen to hip hop then don't watch this movie.
I am gonna say this in all honesty to the ones who rated this movie 1 star. this is not a kids movie and if you are not familiar with NWA and their body of work chances are you won't dig this movie. this movie is for the true diehard fans of both NWA and hip hop music in general. this movie depicts the rise and fall (and everything in between) of a group that changed the rules of what a hip hop group could be. it's a shame that they never really got the chance to do more because in my honest opinion had the reunion became reality they would left an even bigger mark than they did.then again 2 albums from this group and he we are still talking about them almost 30 years later not to mention the camps that came out of the split of NWA (ice cube,eazy-e and dr.dre, mc ren had a decent career as well.) this movie solidifies that legacy that NWA left and will never be forgotten.
CAN'T STOP THE MUSIC for a new generation.
Zero stars! The people who made this movie have no idea how to make a musical. I suggest the producers watch Singin' in the Rain before they embarrass themselves even more with their next feature...
No person of color could ever rate this film under 5 stars unless ofcourse your a conservative. So historic. Political. Immersing. Real. Touching, funny. Characters were spot on you would swear you were in Compton. The greats came to life Easy-E, Dre, Pac, Snoop and yes Suge Knight representing in quadruple OG status lol too much! Best movie of the summer for realness. A must see for any true hiphop fan #wasthereanydoubt
Why do all the "songs" sound the same???
