  1. bryanvmh's rating of the film New Jack City

    Shot with such an intense kinetic energy that the acting and action can't possibly keep up with the stylistic momentum. There is an all-time great Wesley Snipes performance and an all-time terrible Ice-T performance and really strange pacing. Amazing set design and costuming makes it impossible to look away though. Also, So hilariously homoerotic - "I wanna shoot you so bad my dick's hard!"

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film New Jack City

    Wesley Snipes does one of his most distinct roles as a street gangster with too much coke up his nose and a huge fondness for mayhem and women. It kick started the career of Chris Rock and the film is still one of his best appearances. Mario van Peebles directs an okay film but is himself weak as the heroic cop that is not even introduced before a fifth of the movie has been played out.

  3. Nathan Silva's rating of the film New Jack City

    I love the style and the 90's nostalgia. Doesn't hide the fact the script is poorly written and the pacing sucks. Everything happens way too quickly.

  4. alcools's rating of the film New Jack City

    Nino Brown's fashion sense.

  5. killgill's rating of the film New Jack City

  6. Mtume Gant's rating of the film New Jack City

    Points for personality but this movie is so bubble gum its nuts. Wesley gives a great performance though

  7. mt.fuji's rating of the film New Jack City

    A whole star in this rating belongs to Chris Rock's Mookie.

    "Drugs ain't a black thing, or a white thing. It's a death thing. Death don't give a shit about color."

  9. Henrique Verkündigung's rating of the film New Jack City

    it's cool when it talks about hip-hop culture and music and drug issues, it sucks when wesley snipes appears!

  11. Zachary Curl's rating of the film New Jack City

    this movie accomplished what Scarface was never able to do. i can honestly say i've never seen any high school kids wearing Nino Brown t-shirts.

  12. Blue K, Custodian of the Cinema's rating of the film New Jack City

    You know how the token black dude always gets killed first in action movies? In this movie directed by a black dude, the token Asian dude gets killed in the first 10 minutes. See, who says there's no progress?
