A slow-paced but "noirish" action comedy, Bustah Rhymes is perfect as a tough guy who unwittingly goes to collect his inheritance and ends up in a fight with a local sheriff. This is a whole lot better than the predictable, hip hop movie formulaic drivel that Hollywood insists on releasing. Xzibit and Spliff are good comic relief as his sidekicks that get greedy. Bubba"Hightower"Smith shows up as a talkative Hotel manager.
This quirky tale loosely interlaced around a western has a weird funeral director and ellen cleghorn as a sidewalk psychic "Mistress Cleo" type. This was a very offbeat film which really didn't go anywhere but was still interesting and amusing. I appreciated all the cool action with the dual pistols Joshua pope had. Wyclef jean is very good as the guitar playing prophet and narrator of Pope. The film had good energy and cool art direction, well worth watching.
