DVD Review: Feel the Noise
"A young man from the South Bronx dreams of making it as a rapper, until a run-in with local thugs forces him to hide in Puerto Rico with the father he never knew."
With a logline like that, I was expecting this to be one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. Then I found out that the "young man" is Omarion, who might just be the worst actor in the history of film (see You Got Served, for more evidence).
Still the idea of Puerto Rico AND reggaeton in a movie was too much for me to pass up.
So Omarion wants to be a rapper, and he's not very good, then he's involved in something that scares him mom into sending him to PR and Omarion acting like it's a PUNISHMENT! Right there I should have known this movie was going to be beyond stupid.
"Oh what? You want me to send me to a tropical island where they play reggaeton all day and drink awesome rum? I hate you mom. What do you mean the girls are smoking hot too?"
So anyways, Omarion gets there and he's all surly and he meets up with his cousin who really likes reggaeton. This guy is AWESOME, I wish the whole movie was about him.
But I had to turn the movie off after one particular scene. Omarion and his cousin are talking about music and the cousin (rightly) wants to make their music pure reggaeton but Omarion wants a hip hop style. So they fight, and the cousin says "look, I like 50 Cent and Snoop Doggy Dogg, but I'm not trying to make hip hop."
Then, I'll never forget this. Omarion says "Well, I like Daddy Yankee and, and, and, uh Pitbull."
CLICK end of movie for me. Pitbull is not reggaeton!
Also produced by J-Lo? She is bootleg PR.
Man I was pissed off
