Audience Reviews for Ill Gotten Gains
[font=Arial Black][img]http://images.dvdempire.com/gen/movies/8215h.jpg[/img][/font] [font=Arial Black]Plot: In 1869, five years after the abolition of slavery, 24 men find themselves to be captives in the hold of the slave ship "Argon Miss" anchored off of the New Guinea coast of West Africa. The incarcerated men, driven by a spiritual force, attempt to gain their freedom through a bloody uprising. This film shares both a star (Hounsou) and similar subject matter to Spielberg's AMISTAD, but the similarity ends there. This film premiered before AMISTAD began shooting, and is far grittier.[/font] [font=Arial Black][/font] [font=Arial Black]Review: Ill-Gotten Gains was a movie dat really kept my attention and I liked it even if it wasn't a big production movie like "Amistad". I thought the movie was real and was intriguing. The movie is in Black & White symbolizing a Black and white issue, giving the movie an eerie and raw feel. I loved dat they used modern street language of today then the language or accents spoken in those times. Djimon Hounsou stars in this movie, who was also in the movie "Amistad" was really good, he had good presents and play his character very well. Ill-Gotten Gains was written 2 years before Spielberg's "Amistad" and the "Amistad" movie just started production rite after "Ill-Gotten Gains" premiere at the Pan-African film festival. The Amistad movie even used the same boat used in "Ill-Gotten Gains". But I'm not gonna compared the two movies I haven't even seen "Amistad" yet but it should be good especially if it's a Spielberg movie, I gotta check it out. I highly doubt dat "Ill-Gotten Gains" is better then "Amistad" but it may be a little more real. You may hate it or love it but it's still something u gotta see. The special features r really good to, there's a documentary and an Interview wit the director.[/font]
