May 2, 2005
Truly terrible for plenty of reasons, not the least of which being Damon Dash's barely competent directing.
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.

A mockumentary that veers unsteadily between satire and an infomercial for Dash's Roc-A-Fella records.

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.

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.

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.

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 20, 2005
An amiably raucous, scorched-earth mockumentary about the Roc-A-Fella hip-hop kingdom under the proprietorship of CEO Damon Dash.

In Dynasty, even caricature becomes commodity.
April 28, 2005
Dash is a good sport in poking barbed fun at the PR machinations of today's music business.

April 28, 2005
Death of a Dynasty is, like the music it parodies: aggressive, over-the-top, louder than life and in your face.
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 accomplishes what it set out to do -- to make a few laughs.
