Gang Tapes is an ultra realistic look at the gang lifestyle and how it hooks the urban youth. It's weird seeing this so soon after seeing Snow on Tha Bluff as they are basically the same from a technical standpoint, using a handheld camera, and with their premise. Both use a robbery of tourists in order to get the camera which will present their hood lifestyle. I thinks it's fair to say that Snow on Tha Bluff used Gang Tapes as inspiration.
This follows 13 year old Kris who is friends with some local gangsters. The day one of the most respected and feared gangsters gets out of jail, one of their boys is killed. Kris asks to ride with them as they look to get revenge. After some initiations, getting the shit beat out of him and shooting someone, he's in. From there we watch as the gang lifestyle of Kris catches up to him early.
While not for everyone, Gang Tapes is about as real as it gets when it comes to the hood genre of films. It doesn't shy away from everything and the filmmakers did extensive research and interviews in order to make the film feel as real as possible. Mission accomplished.
it a very good movie its true thoe I stay in the hood
This movie is truly amazing. A dark and realistic look into the self destructive culture of LA gangs.
This documentary type movie has you believing these are real gang tapes. This is some waked out shit and leaves you scared afterwards.
Funniest movie of the year.
An interesting exercise that grows tedious by the time it's recycled it's own plot points twice. I'm also betting that it was made by a white guy.
This film kept it real.
te hand held camera effect made it seem almost too real at times. the shootings seemed authentic and made an uneasy feeling. overall it turned out to be a much better gangster flick than i had expected and i would definatly recommend it.
Gang Tapes is a powerful, heavy, and emotional drama that is a prime example of the personal effect that POV can have on the audience.
