September 2, 2005
Death of a Dynasty is fun stuff, and this is coming from a guy who hasn't bought a hip-hop CD since NWA broke up.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 29, 2005
Death of a Dynasty accomplishes what it set out to do -- to make a few laughs.
April 28, 2005
Watching Damon Dash's playful movie is like entering a room where a large, too noisy party is going on and never fully adjusting to the dark or the din.

Death of a Dynasty is, like the music it parodies: aggressive, over-the-top, louder than life and in your face.
April 28, 2005
Dash is a good sport in poking barbed fun at the PR machinations of today's music business.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 26, 2005
In Dynasty, even caricature becomes commodity.
April 20, 2005
An amiably raucous, scorched-earth mockumentary about the Roc-A-Fella hip-hop kingdom under the proprietorship of CEO Damon Dash.
Full Review | Original Score: B

Truly terrible for plenty of reasons, not the least of which being Damon Dash's barely competent directing.
April 29, 2005
Sure, having bottles of Armadale vodka crammed into every other shot could be read as a pointed swipe at crass endorsements of luxury liquors. But when you know Armadale is owned by Roc-A-Fella, it looks a lot like crass product placement.

Half home movie, half product placement, and almost completely worthless.

This narcissistic mockumentary is less a film than a full-length promotional video for Roc-a-Fella Records mogul/director Damon Dash.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 29, 2005
A mockumentary that veers unsteadily between satire and an infomercial for Dash's Roc-A-Fella records.

April 29, 2005
Definitely funny as the hip-hop world pokes fun at itself and others, but it's frequently pointless, especially as the "plot" unfolds.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
April 28, 2005
There is a funny movie to be made from the outrageous egos and excesses of rap music. Death of a Dynasty is not that movie.
