Description
Andre 3000 and Big Boi of the hip-hop duo Outkast star in this uproarious period piece, a comedy-drama-musical-action film set in Prohibition-era Virginia. Patton plays Rooster, the lead singer at a raucous, classy all-black club called Church. Benjamin plays Percival, his best friend, who is the piano player at the club and the shy son of a funeral parlour owner (played by Ben Vereen). Terrence Howard (HUSTLE AND FLOW) provides the menace as Trumpy, a vicious underling of Rooster's bootlegger father (Ving Rhames). Meanwhile, a beautiful singer (Paula Patton) comes to town and Percival finds himself falling in love--much to his terror, as he's afraid to leave the small community of Idlewild for Chicago, her next stop. As Rooster prepares for a showdown with Trumpy, Percival faces his fears, the band heats up, and the guns and songs come out for a big final night at the Church. This is clearly a labour of love for writer/director Bryan Barber and the Outkast crew: a colour-saturated adrenalin rush with witty dialogue, loving attention to period detail, boisterous and athletic dancing, and lots of eye-popping digital animation.

Visually, this movie was excellent. Storywise? Actingwise? Could've been better. But I have to give a few kudos to Bryan Barber for his effort here. Andre Benjamin. The camera LOVES this man and I love to see him on film. He's got such a promising career in the movies. But I digress. Once more, visually on point, but the story, the dialogue, the acting? NO, NOT AT ALL.
