The acting is amateurish, the cinematography is atrocious, the direction is clumsy, the writing is insipid and the violence is at once luridly graphic and laughably unconvincing.
March 19, 2002
A dull, simple-minded and stereotypical tale of drugs, death and mind-numbing indifference on the inner-city streets.

No one involved, save Dash, shows the slightest aptitude for acting, and the script, credited to director Abdul Malik Abbott and Ernest 'Tron' Anderson, seems entirely improvised.

A film of empty, fetishistic violence in which murder is casual and fun.

... for all its social and political potential, State Property doesn't end up being very inspiring or insightful.
January 22, 2002
A shoddy male hip hop fantasy filled with guns, expensive cars, lots of naked women and Rocawear clothing.
January 21, 2002
Basically a static series of semi-improvised (and semi-coherent) raps between the stars.

Lacks the visual flair and bouncing bravado that characterizes better hip-hop clips and is content to recycle images and characters that were already tired 10 years ago.
