Original Gangstas leaves you feeling that more could have been made of this 'blaxploitation' reunion, but it's not bad -- and no more and no less substantial than the films of the original cycle.

Where Original Gangstas works is in its understanding that the stars are playing the characters they created 25 years ago as their older selves.

Boxoffice Magazine

Although the leads are intended to be cool and menacing, the result resembles parody; scenes of drugs, guns and fights are likely to make audiences burst out in laughter.

Despite its good intentions, Original Gangstas isn't very good.
