I always hate the lead-in sentence of a review because everyone is expecting some witty joke or a sentence that sums up the review and my feelings. Well, writing a bunch of reviews and being funny every time is easy…. Hardrock was so bad it was like sucking hardc--k for an hour and a half. No really, it wasn’t that bad, but it did suck. I now understand that over acting or just bad acting is much worse then any low budget movie’s bad special effects. The two main characters in this thug flex fest are so hammy that it’s a wince-a-minute bad line-a-thon. The whole, I’m so pissed off and gangster that every line is delivered with trumped up venom. If this movie had some better writing, better cast, and a better budget it might have been watch able.
Why must every hardcore dude cheat on his girl and constantly spew the word “fuck?”
Michael Wright (Sugar Hill, “Oz”) and Raekwon from the Wu-Tang Clan play the two biggest drug pushers employed by the biggest boss of the coast. The Mayor’s daughter dies of a bad batch of ecstasy and the dynamic thug duo must find out who did it before the heat comes down on their boss. Of course, the pimps of their own game don’t get along, but end up super tight buds. This movie was so full of stereotypical bullshit, I think any high school kid could have written it. One plus of the film was the occasional tit shot thrown in to keep the players awake.
The story was very basic and predictable right down to the guy falling for the cop, and the struggling to get out of the game dude that just wants a good life for his daughter. I have to say that this movie genre saw its peek when N.W.A. was cool and has not seen the light since. It was almost like watching a come back flick of Steven Segal, you want it to take you back to the good old days , but it just ends up sad and funny.
I can’t recommend a rental or even a free watch, let alone try to compare it to something that you might like, so I won’t. This movie needs to be thrown to the bottom of a lake just like the main character. Ha! I spoiled it, or did I? Put a cap in this movies ass YO. I give it ½ a can out of five and hope some young kid doesn’t watch it and want to be just like “Those Dudes”.
