    A slick but dull new shoot- ' em-up from Jamaica, doesn't penetrate the mysteries of high-rolling, high-risk thug life.

    Despite the syncopated score and subtitled patois, this is just another "Scarface" knockoff, with the usual array of bling, booty, and ballistics.
  3. Shottas exists purely in the realm of rasta-music-video fakery.

    I am a true believer that you can't possibly relate to a movie like this if you have not been thru a struggle yourself. This was an I am a true believer that you can't possibly relate to a movie like this if you have not been thru a struggle yourself. This was an excellent movie. My favorite movies are Scarface and the Godfather series. The movie is not a "Scarface knock off" but it is a movie that some can relate to, action packed, and as another person stated, gets straight to the point. Not to mention the actors are not these Hollywood magazine faces we see in the highlights everyday. Maybe thats why there are "haters". Sorry there are people out there that do get tired of looking at the same faces in movies. Full Review »
