The industry has been buzzin’ about the new N.W.A. flick ‘Straight Outta Compton’, and the general consensus on the streets from those who were able to get an early viewing of the movie is that directors F. Gary Gray and Ice Cube definitely delivered a new classic with this one by going raw and unfiltered with their approach to the groups history of dealing with police brutality, misogyny, and Eazy E’s AIDS-related death. ‘Straight Outta Compton’ hits theaters on August 14th, but you can get your first extended look at the flick in the clip below..
Straight Outta Compton shows a few raucous party scenes, group sex, and poppin’ pool parties, but it does scrub clean a few of the group’s more sexist lyrics about slappin’ hoes and that every woman has a little bitch in ‘em.
What Compton gets right about the group’s legacy and what cuts the deepest is Gray’s careful attention to their biggest hit: “F*ck tha Police”. The police hostility, bow-down mentality, constant harassment, use of tanks within the community, and abuse of power at concerts will be the legacy of this film. -IGN
