“You should've kept your word, Bryan.” - Ice Cube
Because N.W.A. was never my thing, I wasn't really interested in seeing this movie at first. But after hearing so many great things about it, I rented On Demand. I was wowed, mostly by O'Shea Jackson Jr and his performance as his dad, Ice Cube. Yes, there were a lot of stories that were sensationalized for drama, and there were also events that weren't included. Either way, we must remember this is still a narrative movie and not a documentary. They told a good story and entertained as they delivered it.
