I can't fathom why this movie seems to be universally praised by the average viewer. It's so objectively terrible; I actually went out of my way to write a bad review so the rating would decrease as 4.5 stars is way to high for this wannabe Scarface film. It's devoid of any meaningful plot, it's abundant in seemingly random acts of violence that does nothing to convey what the movie wants to say (I highly doubt it's trying to say anything at all), and every scene seems to have been directed by someone with no clear understanding of direction. You can tell by how most of these characters interact that they just scraped together a half-baked idea and pushed it out to the public in the laziest way possible, just for the sake of having a "Jamaican Gangster film" out there.
There was so much "flamboyant criminal" filler with the party scenes - the focus on fancy cars and provocative women - at one point I thought this was just one long, low-budget, uncut rap video. Again, there was nothing in these scenes that gave any of the characters dimension or growth nor did it help to progress the story. And don't get me started with the shoot out at Biggs house; so hilariously unbelievable! I mean what kind of hit-man drives up to his victim's driveway in broad daylight, with no mask, several minutes after his accomplices fire the first shot, and still manages to not get the job done!?
I'm convinced that anyone who thinks this is even a remotely good movie has never watched good cinema or probably can't grasp what makes a movie good in the first place. Either that or they're sociopaths who revel at the sight of sex and murder and aspire to be the next El Chapo. As a huge Bob Marley fan, seeing not just one, but two of his sons involved in this catastrophe was saddening and I wouldn't be surprised if he disowned the both of them if he were still alive.
