Format: DVD
This version of Romeo and Juliet is awful. The lyrics to the songs are awful, the way the "star-crossed lovers" find each other and automatically begin to dance provocatively on each other is ridiculous. The idea that two young people of different races liking each other would start a full on race war is unrealistic. If you're looking to watch something ridiculously hilarious, this is it. If you're looking for something that does Shakespeare justice, put your money toward Baz Luhrmann's version and watch Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes show you how it's done.

This movie is so terrible that it's funny. I'm a fan of Nate Parker (Rome), but this has to one of the worst movies I've seen in a while. For a low budget movie the production isn't bad, but the plot and music sucks. If you want something to laugh at, then this is the movie for you. I was looking to see if they they half of star as a rating option, but they didn't so I just selected one star.

How to explain this movie? It's terrible, yes, but it's so much more than that. It's so terrible that I, knowing this already, bought it because I LOVE IT! The music is bad, but it's hilarious to watch. The acting is laughable, but that's what makes it so fantastic. I am usually one to despise bad movies, but this is one that I am literally watching right now. So if you like bad movies, then this is one you should consider.

Ooooo Nate hunny...you have come a long way! This is the worst movie! It's so bad! I love, love, love Nate Parker, but even his sexiness can't save this monstrosity! The acting is just horrible, the script horrible, the music...I can't even. And it's supposed to be a modern day Romeo and Juliet, a classic but this does not translate well at all. I literally laughed the entire movie it was just that stupid.
