Storyline

In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had: their music. Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural rebels—armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent—stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world’s most dangerous group, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today.

Soooooooooo fake. Paints them as superheroes. Just, no.

I think that if you're going to make a movie like this then you need to show all sides, the good and the bad. -Like Eazy and Dre's disrespectful, repugnant "black b*tches" comments (No wonder Dre seemingly never had a problem with Eminem's infamous "black b*tch" lyrics). -Like Dre's refusal to have anything to do with his black kids. You put your white kids into private school while the black ones are stuck in the ghetto. Doesn't the fakery just gnaw at you, Dre? As a black woman, I have zero respect for you. -Like the abuses that women faced at the hands of Dre, that he only apologized for when this hokey movie was about to come out. Aside from Ice Cube, a family man who doesn't deny his kids or disrespect black women (at least not anymore), these are not the people you want your kids to emulate. Watching this movie was painful because even though I grew up to this music and used to have at least a modicum of appreciation for it all, as an adult I see the damage that it's done to an entire generation, and to watch these men painted as martyrs and heroes and such literally turned my stomach. It's SO FAKE. You can see through it even if you don't know anything about the real rappers. I'd advise you all to do your research on these people. Dre especially does not deserve respect or even a portion of your paycheck. So glad I waited until it played on HBO. I would never buy this junk.

Urgh what a disgusting film!.

I am totally disenchanted that I wasted my time and money in seeing one of the most awful movie ever. Mean rappers who violate every law and live a meaningless life where every kind of sin is allowed . These gangsters are not peaceful rebels at all,but evil and aggressive rappers who respect no one and whose atrociousness and uncontrollable instincts made them more like beasts rather than human beings. The story of five horny sex slaves who seek pleasure in pornography and explicit sex. The music is absolutely lousy and noisy. Believe it or not :This is a disgusting movie. See this movie on your own responsibility.

Something Fishy Is Going On Here!

I've been writing reviews for IMDb for ten years, and I think something fishy is going on here. STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON is getting very, very high reviews from the vast majority of IMDb reviewers -- but the nine and ten- star reviews are all getting pelted with "negative" marks, earning scores of "1 out of 15" likes. So what's the problem? The problem is that this movie wasn't supposed to be a hit. The mass audience wasn't supposed to respond to the story of young black men facing oppression and coming out on top. The American people were not supposed to see the real truth about how their police treat minorities every day. Quick, let's bury the good reviews! Let's spawn a phony backlash! Let's discredit Dr. Dre and Ice Cube on the basis of things they did twenty years ago. Oh, and let's all get sentimental about Eazy E because he's dead, and young black men are okay once they're dead. The dead ones are no longer scary and threatening. The problem with this movie is that the people who made it actually dared to portray young, angry black men as heroic, not as criminals or predators. It's okay to glamorize white criminals, because Hollywood was built on that. From PUBLIC ENEMY to THE GODFATHER, white audiences have always loved to sentimentalize their own criminals. But you can't do that with black men who rap about crime, even when they aren't actually criminals themselves. When Cagney postures like a thug in some ancient piece of crap that's cool. But when black men do it today that's dangerous and irresponsible! There are very powerful elements in this country that are terribly frightened by this movie. They're frightened because this movie gets white audiences to see young black men as something other than dangerous criminals. The scenes of NWA being roughed up by police are a terrible threat to the powerful elements in our society, who stay in power only by keeping white people scared of black men. They can't tolerate the idea of black male victims, so they instantly start a media backlash portraying the victims as criminals. I say this is a good movie, a powerful, exciting film that presents a side of American life that is almost never seen on the screen. I know I'm not going to get many likes for this review, but what the hell. I've got enough already.

Not a musical biography,nor a drama,just a semi porno movie.

"Straight Outta Compton" is not a musical biography nor a drama,it is rather a semi porno movie. "Straight Outta Compton" tells the story of five contemptible outlaws who have been living a dissolute life where everything is allowed. This movie takes place in Compton in the mid 80s.I am totally astounded:"Were Black Men So Aggressive And Shameless during the 1980s?". What is the theme of this rubbish movie?. Those five Black narcissistic individuals do not respect themselves,nor they respect others and they shamelessly act (swearing,acting like horny sex maniacs and perverts). Alas!. This was the worst movie I have ever seen!.

Fooled By The Manipulative & Delusive Reviews.

I was fooled by the exaggerative positive reviews of the worst adult movie I have ever seen!. Will Parents allow their children to see a woman performing oral sex on a man?. I wonder if parents would allow their kids to see a lot of naked women and hear bad offensive words?. I am quite sure Film Producers And All The Movie Staff Have Already Paid Off Critics To Speak Positively About This Erotic NC-17 Movie?. Why should Hip Hop Culture And Music Be Associated With Pornography ,vulgar language and drug addiction?. I absolutely regret seeing this shameful erotic movie!.
