Less a sequel to a film than a brand extension.

Seeing two truly rich characters battling for supremacy can have the power of a symphony. Seeing two posses of dull thugs blasting away at each other has all the appeal of a CD single with a skip.

Dash's film is less the stuff cults are made of than fantasies.

Dash can't decide whether he's making New Jack City or Friday.

Slicker, funnier and more professional than its predecessor.

No more three-dimensional than your average brand-name-laden hip-hop video.

This brutal chronicle of heavily armed drug dealers is best appreciated (or disdained) as a raw, bracing expression of the spirit of capitalism.

You may call the film blingsploitation but its fun-loving hoodlums know who's fooling whom.

At least Dash corralled every artist he knew into playing cameo roles, so bored or confused fans can bide their time star-spotting the likes of Mariah Carey, Kanye West and Angie Martinez.

Those interested in annoying things like plot or plausibility are best off steering clear of this inane celebration of all things thug.

The plot is strictly subservient to repetitive shootouts, the dialogue consisting of enough "f" and "n" words to be considered by Guinness.

Attempts at real ruggish posturing -- like that de rigueur sideways-gatted, full-body-exposure firing stance -- are just plain laughable.

State Property 2's daisy wheel of violence represents a reckless glorification of thug life.
