This is by far the best "hood" movie out there. Spike Lee's best work! So many ol' skool rap artists in this. Buy it now!

4.0 out of 5 starsNas and DMX try to get into the drug game
Verified purchase
Belly is about Nas and DMX going from two heist men to trying to make it big in the drug game. You can guess, things don’t turn out well. The film was the brainchild of Hype Williams who made his name directing rap videos. You can see that influence throughout the movie with things like filters on the cameras to give a dark hue to all the shots. It introduces some interesting characters like a female assassin from Jamaica. Nas and DMX start off being like brothers but then move apart with Nas becoming philosophical and reflective about his situation especially because he’s got a stable relationship and family while DMX stays with the streets. I’m not totally sold on the ending but overall it was a nice gritty crime drama.

I'm not happy with this seller at all. I saw in the products description it was new. Also, on my receipt it said "new DVD" and clearly its scratched up and on the outside of the case, there's a sticker that says used. Hopefully the DVD will play.

5.0 out of 5 starsgreat movie

I like Belly because of the relationship between Tommy and Sincere was so real. Even if they did not see eye to eye, they never really argued. I think that Belly also had great cinematography. The music for the film was well-suited for the movie and well-timed with the scenes. My favorite scene, is when Tommy is having sex with Kisha to get her mind off the argument. This was in total contrast to the loving scenes between Tionne and Sincere. You can really see that they love each other in their interactions. While Buns, on the other hand, really only cares about himself. He may have feelings for Kisha, but he is still gonna do what he do without a second thought about her welfare. I also like the scene where Tommy and Sincere meet at the restaurant. That is a great scene because of the changes and growth that had occurred. Tommy was coming to realize the same truth Sincere had told him about a few months prior. You also see that they sincerely respect and maybe even love each other.
