“One good thing, however, was the absolutely stunning cinematography, which kudos to Josh McKie on that one!
“ However, many found this film hard to follow.
“ I wish that kind of plot had been consistent in the movie as it was a very enjoyable last thirty minutes or so because when there was a plot, it was so much better!!!
“ This movie can barely be considered a movie, as it's really just a long, disjointed string of music videos that only sometimes tie into the plot.

“ The characters we were supposed to care about were one dimensional and boring.
“ Cliché and cheap rhymes make this album feel run-of-the-mill.
“I do like the intentions that the movie had, representing many issues currently undermined by society, however I feel as though many of them were highly cliché, and were added into the movie's timeline only to make the movie seem more inclusive to all so as not to cause unease when addressing which problems were most important and had to be featured in the movie.

“ So the worst thing about this "movie" isn't even that there's no plot or that the acting was practically non existent, or that it was extremely uncreative and bland.

“ It was boring and I was just waiting for it to get better.
“ The plot, or lack thereof, was choppy and hard to follow.
