Rating: 3/5 -- Straight Outta Compton is confused as to whether we want to see NWA as the socially conscious group holding a mirror to society, or the string of debauched solo artists they became; the fact it tries to do both at once leaves it feeling confused. Full Review
Immensely crowd pleasing, impeccably cast, visually arresting, stylishly shot, and stuffed to the gills with riotously excellent musical queues, it is easy to fall in love with Straight Outta Compton. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Straight Outta Compton proves as infectiously entertaining as it is educational thanks to F. Gary Gray's richly textured direction and a thumping soundtrack that confirms rap as the protest music of its time. Full Review
4 stars out of 4 -- It is as engaged with its well-executed action scenes as it is with its moments of tenderness and quiet....The filmmakers have made a fiercely political movie...
[An] enthralling, energized, 147-minute tribute to N.W.A....[The actors] deliver strong, memorable work that transcends mere imitation.
Rating: 4.5/5 -- The powerful and record-breaking film was written by Andrea Berloff and Jonathan Herman, and is an absolute must-see! Full Review
3 stars out of 5 -- STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, F. Gary Gray’s sprawling, two-and-a-half hour ode to seminal hip-hop group N.W.A, feels electrifyingly urgent.
Entrenched in the racial tumult of Los Angeles in the mid-1980's, a group of aspiring rappers banded together to revolutionize the global consumption of hip-hop and popular culture. NWA was born out of racial frustration and the disadvantaged economics of their South Central neighborhood. F. Gary Gray directs this biopic about the rise to stardom for the act that earned the moniker of "The World's Most Dangerous Group", featuring Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Jr. playing the role of his father, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, and Jason Mitchell as the late Eazy-E.
