Movie Info

Ever since they were kids, Sincere (Nas) and Buns (DMX) have lived life close to the edge, doing whatever it takes to survive. As adults, they build up their kingdom of crime on drug dealing and robbery. But Sincere grows weary of the criminal lifestyle and joins a black Muslim religious group. Buns, on the other hand, sinks deeper into criminality and faces serious prison time. The cops offer him a deal, however -- assassinate the head of the Muslim group, and he will go free.

Audience Reviews for Belly

  • Dec 31, 2020
    A telling display of a music video director's potential as a feature filmmaker. If you somehow didn't catch Hype Williams' prolific hip-hop and R&B videos in the 90's, ‘Belly' will be an eye-catching dose of expressionism. Williams gives not only every scene, but every room, its own temperature, its own color profile, its own mood. ‘Belly' is thematically clunky - and gets quite hazy plot-wise at points - but the visual panache of the first 15 minutes alone buys this crime saga a lot of goodwill. And I do give it credit, message-wise, for initially glamorizing this underworld only to flip it on its head in the third act. I'm trying not to be swayed by the sensation that I was experiencing a 90-minute noir-smothered, hip-hop-imbued 'Clockwork Orange/American Gangster' fusion, but it's hard. I suspect money got tight during production, because the film just…wraps. It rushes into a climactic sprint, spits out a quick narration, and boom: end credits. ‘Belly's underworld struggles hold interest though, even if the atmosphere does swallow up the film's depth. It's evident that each one of the cast's career musicians are making their acting debut here, but T-Boz emerges as the MVP. And the soundtrack - iconic!

    Think Nas "Hate Me Now" Music Video on the Big Screen mixed in with a plot about drugs. Smooth visuals but given the director, pretty much a music video without the dubbing. Great Soundtrack, opening scene best part.
