Critic Reviews for Shottas

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (13)

  • It's tough to imagine how someone could make a movie about Jamaican gangsterism that's so devoid of political content, but that's hardly Silvestra's biggest problem.

    November 14, 2006 | Rating: 1/4
  • Shottas has everything a bad music video should have -- close-ups of foreign sports cars, women with painful-looking implants stepping in and out of hot tubs, ugly men with gold teeth waving around automatics.

    November 10, 2006 | Rating: 0/4
  • Stars from reggae and other musical worlds give acting a try in Shottas, a witless, misogynistic, gratuitously violent, drug-culture-worshiping film.

    November 10, 2006 | Rating: 1/5
  • Writer-director Cess Silvera delivers an empty, bullet-riddled exploitation combo of attitude and poses.

    November 8, 2006
  • Unless you love senseless violence and gratuitous shots of fake breasts, you might want to listen with your eyes closed.

    November 3, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Who says they don't write good women's roles anymore? The females on view fall into two prototypes: Hot Tub Chippie No. 2 or Plastic Surgery Fire Sale Victim No. 3.

    You've seen 1 gangsta flick, You've seen them all but for some reason this is 1 of the very few I actually liked.Maybe because it was set in Jamaica & had Louie Rankin in it?

    An incredible gangsta tale of two friends that grow up together in the mean streets of Kingston Jamaica and migrates over to the US. See this it is a treasure.

    this is one incredible film and very intense, a film that intrigues you, a film that could easily ring the truth on some areas of Jamaica a country where being the top playa or gangster is the main deal. A film with that dialect of theirs that's very dope and interesting, with the culture but mainly typical gangster bullshit, respect, money, hookers, bla bla bla. If u've liked City of God (Cidade de Deus) u're gonna love this one!!!
