Product Description

Product Description

Ice Cube and Mike Epps are the driving force of this high style, high impact, action/comedy. One's a top dog bounty hunter, the other a two-bit hustler. Add to the mix a botched diamond heist, a lost sinning lottery ticket, and one thing becomes clear...that it's All About the Benjamins.

Amazon.ca

Ice Cube cowrote, produced, and stars in this action caper. Bucum (Cube) is a bounty hunter (get it?) with dreams of big money. Reggie (Mike Epps) is a small-time grifter who also has dreams of big money and is at the top of Bucum's list to boot. Yep, you guessed it: tough guy/funny guy buddy flick. All About the Benjamins is pretty much a by-the-numbers piece of work. There's plenty of macho posturing, gunfire, big-ticket items exploding, and curse words inserted into the script in lieu of actual punch lines. The plot has holes big enough to drive a locomotive through, but then again the plot isn't really the point. Epps's attempts at wacky comedy wear thin early on, but Ice Cube does a fine job, and together they do make quite a few moments hit. Best recommended for when you want turn-your-brain-off excitement. --Ali Davis

Right before the opening credits hit in "All About The Benjamins," there is a moment where star/writer/producer Ice Cube takes a tazer to a man's genitals. It's rather appropriate, because if you're not a fan of Mr. Cube's, "Benjamins" will feel about as comfortable to sit through as that tazer's sting.
"Benjamins" stars Ice Cube as bounty hunter Bucum Jackson, sent on assignment to recover a bail jumper named Reggie Wright (Mike Epps). Reggie is in deep trouble. Not only did he witness a diamond theft and murder, but he also left his wallet - containing a winning lottery ticket - at the scene of the crime. Reggie's only help is Bucum, but the grumpy bounty hunter wants nothing to do with the felon, that is until 20 million in stolen diamonds becomes up for grabs.
I'll give him this much: Ice Cube certainly knows his audience. "All About The Benjamins" is as familiar Cube terrain as a movie can get, filled to the breaking point with the fireballs, profanity and ad-libbed laughs that made his previous two "Friday" films such hits. However, this time out, Cube and his team are trying to resuscitate the buddy film genre, long since laid to rest in the land of straight-to-video releases. "Benjamins" is an old-school, Joel Silveresque actioner, circa 1991. It delightfully traffics in the business of over-the-top villains, gorgeous females, constant shoot-outs and one explosion after another. Long gone are the weed and sex jokes of the "Friday" films, here replaced with bullets and a bigger budget.
Somehow, first time director Kevin Bray makes this work, if only slightly. A highly energized, stylishly directed film that actually features a perfect mood setting opening credit sequence, "Benjamins" can at least serve as eye candy if nothing else.

On first viewing of "Next Friday," I was disappointed. Not that i was expecting anything on caliber with the original "Friday," but perhaps something almost on par with it. However, after repeated viewing of "Next Friday," it grew on me....or should i say the character Day-Day (Mike Epps) grew on me. He has so much energy, but at the same time, his delivery seems laid back. So, in short, i liked the team of Cube/Epps and couldn't wait for another team-up on the big screen.
However, "All About the Benjamins" is something i wish i could've forgotten and since viewing it only two days ago, i have mostly forgoten anything that happened in the movie. I was hoping that Epps would save this movie but he was gven nothing to do for the most part. He had his moments, but they were "short-lived" moments.
Ice Cube is his usual self. I'm glad he is sticking to movies now. Cube isn't a bad actor. I give him credit for his roles in "Higher Learning" and "Friday." The fact is that he can't and shouldn't (co)write scripts anymore. Leave that to the people who actually know which buttons to push so that people actually laugh at a joke.
Bottom line is that even if you enjoy the team of Cube and Epps, you should wait until "Friday After Next," which hopefully will not be as horrible as the trailer makes it out to be, to see them again. However, if you feel so compelled to see this, just remember that I told you so.

Here is a movie that you don't have to take seriously to have a good time. Ice Cube as a bounty hunter was really on the money, because he had the grit and savvy to pull it off, but the show belonged to Mike Epps, who played the con artist. Epps is no Chris Tucker, but he's also not afraid to go the distance, and that is what makes his appearances memorable. This time around, Mike portrays a con-artist with more on his plate than his latest scam. Not only is he being chased by Cube, but he makes the mistake of stumbling onto a murder involving 26 million dollars in diamonds. On top of that, he loses his wallet with the killers. Scary enough they know where you live, but what if the wallet contained a lottery ticket that your girlfriend paid for with her hard earned money, and it hit for sixty million? Throughout this flick, both actors looked like they were having a ball. If your looking for a load of comedy mixed with a little mayhem, this could be for you.

This is a very good movie and Ice Cube has proven himself as a filmmaker. Mike Epps is one of the funniest people out there today and if you don't think so then you don't like or understand black comedy. That's cool though because a lot of times I don't understand white comedy. We as people just think different and there is nothing wrong with that. Anyway, before I get to deep with y'all out there, back to the movie. Like I was saying, the movie has a very good plot or theme to it. It was well thought out and was not just a movie to make you laugh, but make you think "what's go happen next." It had twist in it that you was not expecting. I don't want to write a whole two page article about the movie because it is time consuming and plus I'm not getting paid. I bought it before I ever saw it and I was very pleased with the purchase. Rent it or buy it, you won't be diasppointed.

I hate to be negative, but Ice Cube has been involved in some much better movies than this. It's not a terrible movie, since it has a few good laughs and some cool action sequences, like the wacky opening scene. But it's not exactly the most creative storyline, and I wonder if the people involved were really putting their full effort into it. Unlike some other reviewers, I thought that Mike Epps was pretty funny. The bad guys were pretty cool too, and Ice Cube did an okay job with his acting. Overall, not a great action movie by any means, but worth a look. Author of Adjust Your Brain: A Practical Theory for Maximizing Mental Health.
