All style and very little substance in this oft-told tale of inner-city angst.
All of Williams's glitz, delicious eye candy as it is, eventually overshadows his own script.
Make no mistake: Style is paramount in Belly, a flashy, trashy look at the gangsta' life, which Hype Williams has exploited in videos for Puff Daddy, Mase, Tupac Shakur...
I like Nas and DMX... I think DMX in particular is a pretty decent actor given the roles he's been dealt. But "Belly" is complete garbage. What I find most shocking is that numerous people I know cite this as one of their favorite films! That's the only reason I even decided to see this to begin with (it was forced on me) and hated just about every minute of it. Terrible.
The beginning was awesome...yes...the colors....it was great.
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.
fantastic, nas should do more serious acting, he was great. this film really helps to show the mind set of someone who cant get out of their own way, and it has a great message of redemption at the end.
