I watched it thinking it would be really good because it has an interesting storyline but when I actually watched it I was a bit bored at some parts.

Worth watching!

It was somewhat entertaining to see Belushi and 2Pac together and the dumb things they do throughout the film.

"Gang Related" contains a story that is as involving and intriguing as any action picture in the last several years.

It uncommonly has unpredictable elements inside.

The film's setup begins a little week, but then triggers a series of unpredictable events that connect to each other in a distributive fashion.

It could have done with a greater sense of tension though, for the majority of the time it merely unfolds as opposed to being fast paced or very exciting but it is still an enjoyable enough little film even if it pretty much goes where you expect it to.

But don't let that put you off because it's worth watching it for Shakur's extraordinary talent, and some of the support cast which carry Gang Related through!

The plot here is pretty much a standard thriller plot based around two dirty cops and, although it lacks real flair or imagination, it still manages to do its job and be an enjoyable and occasionally quite gritty little thriller.

Just don't waste your money on it for a Friday night, you should be watching new releases on Fridays.

The movie can be very unpredictable in some moments too.

Cynthia buckles in court, however, when defense attorney Arthur Baylor (James Earl Jones of "Clean Slate") tears up her contrived story under careful cross-examination, and she admits to perjury.

By the numbers but made more enjoyable by many famous faces and several good performances .

The movie is generally boring, with the pair acting quite similar to Danny Glover and Mel Gibson in the Lethal Weapon films, both of thm being generally stupid and clumsy.

It is not as bad as you may think at first, and it's well worth watching at least one time...

As the first hour went by, it became very intense and thrilling.

Dialogue is decent and the plot has a few satisfyingly unexpected twists.

Gang Related had me a bit exicted back in 97 it was the last movie performance of Tupac and he's the only good thing in this slow paced and somewhat predictable movie.

But, again, the best of this movie is the history, that evolves so surprising and unexpected.

, Thrilling throughout, extremely well written, "Gang Related" is a superior crime movie – and with a moral viewpoint to crown it all.

Its One Of Those Films Where It Feels Like Nothing Happens .

There are the inevitable double crosses and the predictable ending.

It tries to be like a gritty seventies cop movie, but ends up dreary and boring.

Jim Kouf has written an interesting story with enough thrilling and surprises, and except for that part, the actors has to carry the film on their own.

Its kind of just like Gridlock'd, how it felt like nothing happened by the end of the film except Ill admit Gridlock'd was a lot better I found.

So the end of the film comes, and in a very confusing ending Divinci is killed by an unknown assailant and Rodriguez is killed by a mob leader whom he owed money.

I enjoyed some parts of the film but other parts were a bit boring
