Critic Reviews for The L.A. Riot Spectacular
[The] pic feels overlong because once it's established that this is going to be a tasteless, if occasionally hilarious, exercise in social criticism, the movie needs to constantly accelerate the level of hilarity, which is impossible to do.
A veteran director of music videos, [Marc] Klasfeld has for his feature film debut churned out a lifeless series of sketch-comedy ideas that presumably would make even the Wayans brothers blanch at their broadness.
...occasionally funny, but the tone is mostly one of frantic and forced "outrageousness"...
Stunningly, the end of 'The L.A. Riot Spectacular' promises a sequel taking on the OJ Simpson trial. If I have to physically go to the west coast and prevent this from happening, I'm prepared to make that commitment.
A film that works overtime to offend each and every ethnic group and economic class that makes up the smoggy purgatory of Los Angeles while simultaneously patting itself on the back for being so putatively daring.
Audience Reviews for The L.A. Riot Spectacular
Feels half-assed but has a couple funny bits. fights to make a point on racism, which is executed poorly and feels just like an excuse to let white guys say some n words in a movie.
