Critic Reviews for Shottas
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.
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.
Stars from reggae and other musical worlds give acting a try in Shottas, a witless, misogynistic, gratuitously violent, drug-culture-worshiping film.
Writer-director Cess Silvera delivers an empty, bullet-riddled exploitation combo of attitude and poses.
Unless you love senseless violence and gratuitous shots of fake breasts, you might want to listen with your eyes closed.
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.
Audience Reviews for Shottas
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.
