Complex Diaz had this to say about Straight Outta Compton:
This is a movie that should appeal to a limited audience but it is presented with such skill and with such compassion and heart that it should draw in huge numbers of persons wanting to see a real work of art. These people will be of all ages, races and genders. “Straight Outta Compton” could have been a movie without merit if created by lesser hands. This time they got the story right and handed it to the right people to make it work. “Straight Outta Compton” is one of the best movies of the year.
I scored “Straight Outta Compton” a hip-hop 8 out of 10.
Can’t wait to watch it!
