This is not 4K in any way, it’s just HD upscaled. Looks no better than the HD release. The film was shot at a much higher resolution but the studio has given us a crappy transfer. Please fix.
In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had: their music. Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural rebels-armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent-stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world's most dangerous group, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today. Straight Outta Compton stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, and is directed by F. Gary Gray. The drama is produced by original N.W.A members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Tomica Woods-Wright, Matt Alvarez, Gray, and Scott Bernstein. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Adam Merims, David Engel, Bill Straus, Thomas Tull, and Jon Jashni.
Skeptical to begin with but came to my senses and live it really recommend it
This film is about the history of foundation of rap music (right before Dona Direidi & Honey G existed) Dr. Dre and his gangster buddies go and meet each other. Also, Ignore Antastic in 3D's review, She doesn't think that movie is good.
Although it is not entirely accurate to what actually happened I can still say that it was a good film one of my favourites 😀🙂
Great story of the best 80s 90s gangster rap artist of all time well worth the watch
The best film ever. Like it is
Title says it all! Best movie of 2015. Well acted, well told, appeals to all. Focuses on the main aspects of NWA without losing the music or intrigue.
But this is the best film I've ever seen this just shows what people can do. The power that people have. Completely worth it. I've watched this 11 times already because I love how this is a true story.
I bought the film but it is saying it never downloaded so i look in downloads and its not there someone plz help
I just couldn't connect with this at all. Give it two star because it wasn't awful - I just couldn't find it interesting. May be for others.
This movie is nothing short of spectacular. If you are a fan of hip hop and how these guys became who they are now. You must watch this. Takes me back to the days when Eazy E passed away. Epic film
Entertaining, good acting. Kept me interested all the way through.
Highly recommended, brilliant film
Loved this film
So glad I bought this can't wait to see the deleted scenes and extras, best movie of 2015 in my opinion
It's incredible and amazing film and represents what it was like for NWA at the time. It also shows how dr dre has changed so many peoples lives. RIP Easy-E
Must see. Talented actors and just brilliant.
I must admit it was much better then I thought it was gonna be, I found the trailer a bit cheesy and it got played so much on YouTube, but it's actually a really good film a must see if your into hip hop or even just a fan of Dre or Ice Cube etc 👍🏾
Whether you grew up listening to NWA, Dre, Snoop, E or watching Boyz in da hood, this is a MUST SEE!! A masterpiece by Dre, Tamica, Cube and all involved!!
I love all music, and I own 600 + films on here…
This for me is one of the best put together films I have watched in a decade.
I’m 34 and it took me back to my youth as some of these guys started.
Great story, great music.
A simple must buy for any iTunes collection even if your not that into hip hop / rap.
Best movie i have seen in a long time. The setting and the acting was spot on.I would advise anyone to watch this even if NWA is not your thing..the story behind it is great.
Strong movie. Could easily watch it 10 times. Don't have to like hip hop to watch/like it. Absolute quality!
All I've got to say 5* love the 80s 90s hiphop
I have pre-ordered this film maybe like a month ago and it has not been released yet. when will it be release?
Epic film...was apprehensive about watching it but intrigued because I love a true story! But it blew me away...can't wait to watch again. Release it on iTunes already.
One of the most inspirational films i have ever watched. Sat in complete silence throughout the whole movie. After watching the trailer i wasn’t convinced but i recommend everyone watches this!!
I don't care who ice tray is, all I know is this movie was crap
This movie looks amazing and I love the 1980s era, anyone know when I can buy this rather than having to pre order?
awesome movie ! big up dre and n.w.a
The best film I think I have ever seen as I am the biggest hip hop fan and NWA fan (love 90's hip hop)
This movie is incredible, so inspirational. One of the best movies I've ever watched!!🎈
excellent film. everything i was hoping it would be and more , can’t wait to watch it again
Left me speechless. Had to go back and give it a second viewing. Anyone questioning whether to give this a go. Do it. Wow.
N.W.A, tupac I wish some people never die!!! Best movie ever !!
I bought it and it's still just showing the price is this normal?? And when is the film actually released
I'm not into hip hop, so wasn't expecting much from the movie. It was brilliant! I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it, and by how much of the music I knew. Highly recommend. The performances were great too.
I can't wait for this to be released. Looks amazing.
This film is something else. Highly recommended to anyone who even has a slight interest in the late 80's/early 90's hip hop. Still would watch even if not!
Hopefully there will be a sequel to pick up with Tupac etc.
