Critic Consensus: Director Matt Ruskin's enthusiasm for the project is readily apparent, but his film is unfocused, meandering, and frustrating to watch.

Critic Reviews for The Hip Hop Project
It makes the viewer uncomfortable, too -- but it's unquestionably honest, like so much of Hip-Hop.
A big, wet, sloppy valentine to hip-hop's power to give voice to the voiceless.
First-time director Matt Ruskin is a skilled documentarian; he releases information gradually so the narrative develops in an organic fashion that is consistently engaging.
The film meanders, sidetracks, and frustrates -- few of the rap songs, some of them boasting wildly inspired couplets, are shown and heard in their entirety.
Dramatically, the movie lacks motion -- the kids don't seem a lot better off at the end -- and the point of the program escapes me. These kids badly need an education.
