So we can start with the camera work, think student film and obscure lighting techniques then we move to the 'over-acting' and then the 'under-acting' in some parts. Bad story line and even worst direction. It opens in 1972, as the three are members of an East L. On the good side are the rare scenes of the above mentioned actors. The acting wasn't as bad as I expected though. This movie is a classic case.
After the death of his brother he decides to take justice into his own hands, he leaves the police and he manages to enter the gang that killed his brother. In general, the dialogs are boring and weird, some scenes are very strange indeed, in particular one with sadistic girls and their boss. I was pretty disappointed by this move as it had great actor potential Vinnie Jones, Val Kilmer, Tamer Hassan but unfortunately the good actors in this movie only play minor roles. Learn how to direct properly a movie. This is the story of a cop whose brother was a drug dealer and was killed by his gang when he is trying lo leave his criminal life. There are many obligatory parades of Babes in varying poses as eye-candy and Gangsta Ho hangers on.
Directing is perfect for this kind of movies, and the last end speech before it ends unexpectedly is great. I can very much relate to the reviewer who mentioned getting hooked on it on tv in the middle of the night. If you can get money for this movie then anything is possible. Some people watch this movie just because 50 Cent is in it, think its a rap movie or something, build up expectation for it, but gets disappointed which makes it an unpleasant experience. . Michael decides to take revenge for his brother by the way of the underworld.
Ifyou are a teenager, who enjoys action flicks for the sake of action flicks and have no concern for quality, this is your cup of tea! Vinnie Jones, Fiddy and Kilmer have a total screen time of about 2 minutes. His slight frame also has you questioning at times whether really, really he is capable of ploughing into guys twice his size and pummelling them to bits. The streets look mean, the cops look bad and the baddies look badder, apart from Kilmer who just looks like a camp, fat has-been. Several people called it the worst movie they had ever seen, or words to that effect. Luke Gose gave a stunning performance, his character keeps building throughout the movie. However in the process of revenge, Michael falls in love with a girl. It is a compelling movie in spite of its shortcomings.
Worst movie I have ever seen, this director shouldn't be able to work again. Also the story is extremely standard and predictable but it even tries to be so much more as it really is which made me really not believe a thing. I give it a C-. Ditto pretty much Val Kilmer, and Vinnie Jones although they don't Mumble they just barely show up. Taking matters into his own hands he goes undercover in the gang that did it in order to get revenge. I shan't spoil it but if you don't replay it at least 3 times to double check what you just saw I'll be surprised, in fact I'll be flabbergasted, it's incredulous! Even if it seems overacted, it is compelling because it seems so real in spite of the overacting.
Blood In Blood Out is an action film which revolves around a mission of a police. Okay, it isn't the best movie ever made. What do you do when the law doesn't help? My mum always said if put rubbish in that is what you get out! Not always, but here it is nonetheless, and it reeks of bottom barrel badness. The film is adventurous, some of the scenes are splendidly colourful in a pantomime, burlesque peep show kind of way. I think this was a bit too big for Goss, at this juncture, especially with a non-native accent, but the action, and slow underlying story is believable and keeps you watching.
Moreover the script was nicely written. Luke Goss is the main star of the movie. This is a movie that a lot of people will like, I just can't get into this kind of thing. It also isn't the best movie ever made. Even Val Kilmer - the only name in the flipping movie - was disgusting, both in appearance and line delivery. Goss has come along way since his band days, and looks the Jason Streatham'esque mean moody guy who's not to be messed with, but his accent is terrible. At times, English, at times a bit Aussie I think he just manages to get away with it, but it is distracting.
Rapper 50 Cent Produced this thing and he manages to mangle the English Language, swallow His words, and mumble for the complete 30 seconds he is on the Screen. A bunch of girls and some crazy camera angles don't do the trick! But the best of all is the last minute special effects?. It was not terrible, but had all the drama and excitement of watching a dog play fetch, fun for a while then just sitting waiting for it to end. That aside, the rest of the cast are great, specifically with regard to Tamer Hassan, who delivers a rock solid performance as the egomaniac Elias. Goss plays a cop forced to throw in his badge and infiltrate the underworld to seek revenge for his brother's death.
After his brother is brutally murdered Sheriff Spencer Luke Goss is let down by the people he hoped would help. As for the actors oxymoron they too should be banned from making any more films. In this movie, Michael is a sheriff but disaster happens to him when his brother is killed and all detectives in his city refuse to investigate the gang who is related to his brother's death. It plods along as expected, relatively good soundtrack, token chicks, gratuitous nakedness and the stilletoed heroine. The Colors are washed out and the lighting is awful, the Camera shakes as this announces Action and Excitement. Around him, he is surrounded with a very believable army of thugs and this alone saves the film. Also the action scenes are well scripted and fun to watch.
