Critic Reviews for Reincarnated
Snoop has certainly tempered his worldview, but enlightenment isn't as evident here as much as a woozy weariness, perhaps a long-term byproduct of being very, very stoned.
In its simplest moments ... "Reincarnated" presents an honesty that is its own reward. It shows us an old Dogg with no tricks.
Snoop's involvement as a producer does a disservice to the film. Was there anyone behind the scenes with veto power?
Snoop is a fascinating figure who deserves better than this puff piece.
The rap artist's spiritual journey (he's now Snoop Lion) seems earned, rather than the publicity stunt others might have caught a whiff of originally.
Audience Reviews for Reincarnated
As not only a fan of Snoop Dogg(now Snoop Lion), but a fan of reggae music, Rastafarian culture, and the whole marijuana as a gateway to our spiritual selves; I really enjoyed this film. Obviously everybody has their own opinions on who Snoop Dogg really is, and some won't accept this as anything more than a marketing ploy. If you really think about it though, the only thing that making a reggae record would do to Snoop's career is bring it down a peg, not up. More people in this country love rap, then love reggae. In all honesty, I believe that the Snoop Dogg is sincere in his metamorphosis into a reggae artist that sings about peace, love, and struggle, instead of sex, violence, and the thug/drug-dealing/pimp life.
Snoop Dogg ventures to Jamaica in an effort to become a new type of musician. He changes his name to Snoop Lion and immerses himself in Rastafarian culture, as well as recording his debut as a reggae artist. Along the way we see many locals, including Bunny Wailer and Damien Marley, and we listen to Snoop Dogg explain why he chose this new path.
I can accept that some people will never accept this new and improved Snoop, but I'm one of those that can, and I look forward to listening to Snoop Lion for years to come. If you're into the whole Rastafarian thing and like Snoop Dogg, this is a can't miss. If you're just into Rastafarianism, it's worth a look. If you're into neither of them, then just pass on it because you won't enjoy it.
Snoop Lion uses this documentary to show a culture that many will never understand and one that comes off as more an excuse to be permafried rather than enlightened. The good parts of the documentary are the snippets of the past while Snoops new journey seems to be an attempt to smoke as much marijuana as possible rather than progressing his career which closely resembles what the point of the film seems to be.
