Product Description

Richard T. Jones (Guess Who, TV's "The Wire"), Blair Underwood (Madea's Family Reunion, TV's "Fatherhood"), Chenoa Maxwell (Doing Hard Time, Hav Plenty), Andre Royo (Shaft, TV's "The Wire"), Andrew Lauren (Conspiracy Theory), Laz Alonzo (Jarhead, The Tenants) star in G, a tragedy-filled story of a young Great Gatsby-ish Hip-Hopper named Summer G who falls for a middle- to upper-class sistah while in college. After she rejects him for a fellow social climber, Summer G spends ten years building a Hip-Hop empire, and then moves to the Hamptons where he finds the object of his affections. Cinematic urban tastemaker movie which highlights an African-American aristocratic lifestyle.

Amazon.com

G. is an engrossing update of The Great Gatsby, set in the Hamptons and starring Richard T. Jones as Summer G., a self-made, millionaire head of a hip-hop label. Having risen from obscurity to make his fortune, Summer pines for just one thing: Sky (Chenoa Maxwell), the woman who dumped him back in college to marry the brutal, philandering Chip (Blair Underwood). Sky's feckless cousin, Tre (Andre Royer), a pop journalist, sets her up in an assignation with Summer, leading to predictable conflicts but with unexpected consequences. Co-written and directed by Christopher Scott Cherot, G. is also an interesting portrait of American wealth, particularly the collision of old and new money in the form of a biracial aristocracy coming to terms with a hip-hop elite. Strong performances alone are enough to recommend this feature. --Tom Keogh

This drama filled movie involves a love triangle. Summer G, who is played by actor Richard Jones, the handsome Blair Underwood as Chip Hightower, and Chenoa Maxwell as Sky Hightower are the main characters in this film. G is a famous rapper who settles in the Hamptons to be near his former college sweetheart Sky. Sky, who also lives in the Hamptons is married to Chip, a uncle Tom, conniving, philandering, stock broker. When Sky and G run into one another at one of his parties, memories of their past love resurface.

Soon afterwards, things began to heat up between G and Sky and Chip doesn't like any of it. While G is willing to give up everything he's worked hard for to regain the love he's lost, Chip will do anything to keep her. A must have in the collection!

I was really surprised at how sexy G turned out to be. I was expecting another dumb Hip Hop movie and discovered a thought provoking, hot love triangle. It had a great combination of laughs, hotness and scares. Chenoa Maxwell is beautiful. And Blaire Underwood and Richard T. are such great actors. I highly recommend.

Without negating what other reviewers already have said about the movie itself, let me add that this is a great counterpoint to the Robert Redford version of Gatsby. If you can get past the language (it's pretty rough, especially with several actors' overabundant use of the "f" word) and a pretty graphic love scene between Summer G and Skye (though we only see their backs) -- hey, this is a PG, after all -- it's a nice update of the original movie. I show parts of G to my inner-city high school students after we watch the Redford version. They immediately see the similarities and point out the differences, and actually get enthusiastic about the story. G has never failed to help me help my students connect to the original Gatsby. Be careful and judicious in your use of G, but think about using parts of it to help students connect to the original source material.

I rated this movie a high good because it is a good movie. I enjoyed watching this movie. I would recommend this movie to everyone that wants to watch a good movie about how things seems to start out wrong but end up turning around for good at the end or before it is over. I would recommend this seller to everyone...very timely in delivery/downloads.

Between 3 1/2 - 4 stars. A few different settings as far as scenery but not many. Appears as of movie was shot at primarily 3 locations, with maybe 2 or 3 brief scenes elsewhere. Outside of that the movie is great! Enjoyed the plot. Cast did a fine job. Some of score was to my liking as well.

Although it doesn't specifically say it anywhere in the movie, this was inspired by The Great Gatsby. It's not a black version of a film adaptation of the book, instead, it's a modern film that has the same theme and elements of that story. The movie is VERY well written, and it has a lot of really good scenes and dialogue. I will admit though that some of the costumes were ridiculous, and a few characters were played by actors who weren't that great, but still, it was fantastic.

Richard T. Jones was a total surprise to me in this move! I don't see him a lot but in this he was charming and debonair. Charming in a devil-ish sort of way. But the best scene was when he went "gangster" and grab a baseball bat to do a beat down! That was hilarious! He just switches from this charming lover-type to gangster instantly! Whoa!

Then there's Blair Underwood! What can you say about Blair except ump...ump...ump! He's the Blair we have come to know and love!
