Movie Info

Determined to grow as both a human being and an artist, hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg takes a spiritual pilgrimage to Jamaica as filmmaker Andy Capper captures his gradual metamorphosis into Snoop Lion over the course of one profoundly transformational month. For as long as Snoop can remember, he's been rapping, but upon turning 41, the hustler lifestyle begins to take its toll on the man who turned out such hits as "Murder Was the Case," and who has seen the lives of too many friends taken by violence. While visiting Trench Town, Snoop seeks the wisdom of the Nyabinghi community elders in finding a new direction, and reflects on the past and future while immersing himself in Rastafarian culture. Later, in the wake of a deeply affecting meeting with the legendary Bunny Wailer, Snoop Dogg embraces his new identity as Snoop Lion. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Snoop has certainly tempered his worldview, but enlightenment isn't as evident here as much as a woozy weariness, perhaps a long-term byproduct of being very, very stoned.

In its simplest moments ... "Reincarnated" presents an honesty that is its own reward. It shows us an old Dogg with no tricks.

Snoop's involvement as a producer does a disservice to the film. Was there anyone behind the scenes with veto power?

Snoop is a fascinating figure who deserves better than this puff piece.

The rap artist's spiritual journey (he's now Snoop Lion) seems earned, rather than the publicity stunt others might have caught a whiff of originally.

March 14, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The whole thing does feel like a self-indulgent exercise on the part of Snoop, though he remains an artist of undeniable substance. In this case, a controlled substance.

A personal journey for Snoop Dogg as he becomes Snoop Lion. Perhaps I am being overly critical but while it may have been moving for Mr. Lion, the audience remains unmoved. Interesting to look at but unmemorable.

As not only a fan of Snoop Dogg(now Snoop Lion), but a fan of reggae music, Rastafarian culture, and the whole marijuana as a gateway to our spiritual selves; I really enjoyed this film. Obviously everybody has their own opinions on who Snoop Dogg really is, and some won't accept this as anything more than a marketing ploy. If you really think about it though, the only thing that making a reggae record would do to Snoop's career is bring it down a peg, not up. More people in this country love rap, then love reggae. In all honesty, I believe that the Snoop Dogg is sincere in his metamorphosis into a reggae artist that sings about peace, love, and struggle, instead of sex, violence, and the thug/drug-dealing/pimp life. Snoop Dogg ventures to Jamaica in an effort to become a new type of musician. He changes his name to Snoop Lion and immerses himself in Rastafarian culture, as well as recording his debut as a reggae artist. Along the way we see many locals, including Bunny Wailer and Damien Marley, and we listen to Snoop Dogg explain why he chose this new path. I can accept that some people will never accept this new and improved Snoop, but I'm one of those that can, and I look forward to listening to Snoop Lion for years to come. If you're into the whole Rastafarian thing and like Snoop Dogg, this is a can't miss. If you're just into Rastafarianism, it's worth a look. If you're into neither of them, then just pass on it because you won't enjoy it.
