Editorial Reviews

With his pregnant girlfriend in jail, Diquan is running out of choices. He can either deal guns for cash, or turn informer and cut a deal to get her out. The trouble starts when he decides to do both. Now all the firepower in the projects is pointing in Diquan's direction - but he's ready. He's strapped.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Sleeper Hit!! June 29, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
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!!

4.0 out of 5 stars STRAPPED Review! March 17, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars a five star movie all the way-strapped January 12, 2007
By lemakk7
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strapped February 24, 2006

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little known hit January 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
