    Well shot and edited, Death of a Dynasty is hardly a comedy classic, but it's frequently on target.
  2. There are some funny moments and amusing cameos, but it's not enough to elevate this project's slapdash approach.
  3. While those in the know will undoubtedly find something to appreciate in the film's wide-ranging if amateurish stabs at satire, the vast majority will feel left out of a private joke.

    Dynasty is less interesting as a film than as a winking gloss on hip-hop's assembly line of beats, beefs, and B-list lyricists. That said, Capone does a killer dancin' Dash, James Toback's Lyor Cohen is a riot, and multi-credited comedian Kevin Hart should have his own Chappelleian series.
  5. Watching the rest of Damon Dash's playful movie is like entering a room where a large, too noisy party is going on and never fully adjusting to the dark or the din.

    Inspired mockumentary-a-clef so clotted with in-jokes that it should come with a crib sheet.
