Dope (2015) Review


Dope (2015) available for purchase on Amazon
Not many films are too deep these days. Dope (2015) does a good job of bringing up some pretty deep messages about how younger folks should contemplate about their futures and follow their passions without having to fit into what society says is cool. It also has one of best soundtracks a film could have, especially if you were into hip-hop in the 80s and 90s.

The film follows Malcolm, a high school senior that has a lot of love for the hip-hop culture of the 90s played and superbly by Shameik Moore. Malcolm has a punk band and a lot of ideas about doing big things for the future, even though he has a deep love for the past. It is only in the culture of the past though as you will see he is well read on bitcoin, business, and online entrepreneurship when properly motivated.

Without spoiling anything for you, Malcolm and his friends get into some trouble and find clever ways out. Keep in mind he still gets distracted by the regular distractions of an everyday teenager his age. However, you'll see he is far from your average teen in Inglewood, California.

Dope (2015) is streaming on +Netflix US & Canada and is rated 'R'.
