What could have been a lazy, obvious, and stereotypical biopic about the formation of NWA is actually the complete opposite. This movie runs for almost 2 and a half hours and damn if I didn’t want an hour more. It’s that good. Not only does it show how these three guys changed music, it is at times infuriating, moving, and inspiring. The pacing is tight, the music is awesome, and most surprising the acting is excellent. For those who classify the group as "thugs" and think/thought NWA glorified "the life", do yourself a favor and see this movie. Just like with anything, you have to understand the context and the intent before you can judge the message. So far, it’s my favorite movie of the year.
