For the Hip-Hop heads, this movie is for you. If you like movies like Who’s The Man where you see a lot of Hip-Hop Cameos, “Strapped” features appearances by Busta Rhymes, Das EFX, Chi-Ali, Sticky Fingaz, Monie Love, Yo-Yo, Kool Moe Dee, and Fredro Starr as the supporting character. The setting, soundtrack, and the clothes will all take you back to the 1993 New York scene.
For the Movie heads, it’s Forest Whitaker’s first directed movie. It also stars Bokeem Woodbine in his film debut. Strapped reminds me a lot to Clockers as far as the setting.
Here’s the Plot:
“Ex-con attempting to go straight runs accross serious problems. His girlfriend gets arrested for dealing crack to an undercover police officer. In a desperate attempt to get the charges dropped against his woman, he strikes deal with weapons cop(Michael Biehn) to turn in local gun dealers. However, the D.A. is not satisfied with the results, resulting in some serious game playing and double crossing.” Written by Humberto Amador
