Placing a camera beneath someone’s chin and then titling it upwards is a stupid idea for a shot. When you (the director) repeat that shot over and over again throughout your movie, you’re a stupid person.

Another dud from rappers Kane & Abel’s production company, who has brought us cinematic excrement like Only God Can Judge Me and Da Block Party, Black Saturday came to video in July. Now usually I always review Maverick Entertainment titles. For the 2005 year they’ve probably released fifty films, and I’ve only missed three. Black Saturday was one of those films, as I was so irritated while watching this poor attempt at an urban gang film that I just placed it back on my shelf and ignored it. Sadly, I was going alphabetically through my collection for films I didn’t review in 2005, and after Back by Midnight came Black Saturday.

The notorious Gary Guns just got out of a jail a week ago after serving ten years in prison. He makes an attempt to go straight, working as a cook in a fast food restaurant, but it doesn’t take long for him to blow up and quit. Apparently there is no middle ground for him (this is urban cinema we’re talking about here), as he immediately goes back to being a thug. He pistol whips a fat fuck who can’t act, and then proceeds to hook up with Twan, an asshat who plays video games all day long, to go back into crime. Meanwhile, there’s Kane and Abel displaying their lack of talent as X and Dro, a pair of drug dealers, and Tasha, the daughter of a prominent politician that just wants to become a singer.

There are a few other characters too, and when you consider that they’re all packed into a seventy-two minutes film, you can see where the problems begin. It’s not intelligible like so many urban films, which is its one true positive, but it still makes for an unpleasant experience.
DVD: Barebones.
