Audience Reviews for Carmen - A Hip Hopera

Beyonce Knowles and Mekhi Pheifer are believable in this classic love story with a hip-hop twist. See this whether you are a hip hop & R&b fan or not...It is a rare treat.

AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL! Just AWFUL! Everyone knows this was just an excuse for Beyonce to be the center of attention. A a child growing up as a Destiny's Child fan could appreciate this "musical," but once she grows up and sees this film in all its cheese-tastic glory, she'll see it as a terrible "hip-hop" knockoff
