Editorial Reviews

Strapped (DVD)

This gritty urban thriller takes you under the skin of the street where you play hard or don't play at all. Diquan has few choices in life-and when his pregnant girlfriend ends up in jail for drug-dealing, he's got even fewer. Desperate to free her, Diquan can either cut a deal with Police Lt. McRae and turn informer, or he can sell guns on the street to make bail. Diquan decides to do both, joining hi s buddy bamboo dealing pistols, shotguns, and semiautomatics while feeding Lt. Mc Rae the information he needs to raid their supplier. When Bamboo discovers that his partner's selling information, the street is the last place Diquan wants to be. All the fire power of the projects is about to be set loose and it's pointing in one direction. But Diquan's ready. Diquan's strapped.

Forest Whtaker's directorial debut, Strapped is a gritty action packed drama of a young black man conflicted in his feeling of being loyal to his own or representin' his Housing Projects code of Silence when it comes to crime. Newcomer Bokeem Woodbine does a good job in his acting debut as DiQuan Mitchell, The Teen with the conflicted feelings. Rap Star Fredro Starr is excellent as the Gun Selling,Take no shorts Character,Bamboo.Excellent Movie with a surprising Climax!! A Must See!! Michael Biehn is also surprisingly good as Police Officer McCrane. Kia Goodwin,Jermaine Hopkins,Willie Stiggers Jr. and Rappers Kool Moe Dee, Monie Love,Busta Rhymes,Das EFX & YoYo also star in this flick. Kudos also to the Actor who played "Ben",the supposedly family Man who uses his FFL license to purchase guns by mail, then in turn sells them to the Kids of the Brooklyn Housing Projects... A Must see for fans of Urban filmed & shot Drama!!STARS!!

Forest Whitaker made his directorial debut with this gritty urban tale about a young black male forced to walk both sides of the law. Working as both an informant for an ATF official and as an arms dealer himself, DiQuan Mitchell (played brilliantly by Bokeem Woodbine) is hoping to earn enough money to move out of the projects and gather up enough evidence to get his pregnant crack-dealing girlfriend released from prison. Partnering up with his childhood friend, Bamboo (Onyx's Fredro Starr in one of his first roles), the two try to make their own moves, cutting out Bamboo's original business partner, a white middle-class weapons whole saler named Benny. This erupts into problems on the streets which result in a murder and a number of betrayals in the process.
"Strapped" plays pretty solidly for a made-for-HBO film. First-time director Whitaker uses a documentary-like atmosphere along with an underutilized cast of actors which includes a number of well-known rappers such as Busta Rhymes and Kool Moe Dee to tell an amazing story. The movie carries a very strong anti-gun message. Spike Lee's "Clockers" which followed some months later adopted some of the same themes.

this is movie is so good, you don't see movies like these anymore.the movie captivates you about crooked cops and it demonstrates how far people will go to better their life situations.i highly recommend this movie for anybody that wants to see cops and street criminals dealing with guns,but its more about survival for these good actors.fredo starr is such a good actor like tupac shakur, he makes you feel like hes the real person being portrayed.

The acting was good considering it was Fredro Starr and Bokine Woodbines first movie on the big screen. The movie addressed some of the issues that are affecting our young inner city youth. The sales provider provided quality service and product.

Not very many people have heard of this movie and I don't understand why. Bokeen Woodbine and Fredro Star play their characters well. This movie is kind of a mix between Juice and Fresh. If your into the hood movies you gotta see this.
