Product Details

Product Description


Like its progenitors Beat Street and Wild Style, Krush Groove is a movie about hip-hop that in its rush to document an emergent culture ignores plot, acting, cinematography, or anything else that makes a movie watchable or worthwhile.

That said, Krush Groove contains some nifty performances from hip-hop legends Run-DMC, the always hilarious Fat Boys (see Disorderlies if you can't get enough of their weighty shtick), brilliant MC Kurtis Blow, and Prince proteacute;gé Sheila E. Also look out for soon-to-be L.A. Law-yer Blair Underwood in a lead role. Performances aside, Krush Groove isn't def, it's just so-so. --Ethan Brown

Product Description

In this movie based on the life of Russel Simmons, hot young record producer/manager Russel Walker has all the hottest acts on the record label Krush Groove records. The acts include Run-DMC, Dr.Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Kurtis Blow. When Run-DMC has a hit record and Russel doesn't have the money to press records he borrows money from a drug dealer/loan shark. At the same time Russel and Run are both competing for the heart of Sheila E.

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic... sort of. March 8 2004
This movie featured some of the best talent of the day, but the poor script and contrived plot bring it down a few notches. As an entertainment movie, it doesn't quite cut it; however, if you're a fan of the music, it really won't matter. Lots of fun, nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites March 2 2003
Watching this movie is definitely a trip down memory lane. Any true fan of Hip Hop will enjoy watching old school artists such as Run-DMC perform. The plot is formulated, but makes for a light-hearted entertaining movie.
Qualtity of the DVD is tight as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Krush Groove is good fun! Feb. 8 2003
By A Customer
The first thing I have to say is ......why is this movie rated R?....must be because Hollywood was scared of Hip-Hop when this movie was released....this movie should be rated "G" or "PG"....compared to what rappers are saying now in thier songs, the tunes in this movie sound like a Disney soundtrack.....this movie was highly enjoyable and took me back to the 1980's and the birth of hip-hop....it was cool to see the late Jam Master Jay and Run DMC....wow....were they young when they made this movie....there is also a scene with LL Cool J before he was all buffed.....he is as skinny as a string bean.....if you like hip-hop you will just love this trip down hip-hop's memory lane....buy this one, it's worth it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Material --- "F" what you heard Feb. 2 2003
By Mello-D
This movie is a hip-hop classic. It's not a movie for the bling-bling, bounce-bounce, hip-hop listener or the late comer to hip-hop culture. If you were down with this movement when it first started then you will definitly want to add this one to your video collection. If you are somebody that just got into rap music in the 90's or later... you may not feel it the same way. One of the other reviewers said they were "dissapointed" and didn't understand why Sheila E. got more props than LL or Beastie Boys... that's because they weren't known yet and Shelia E. was... if you were down from the start you would know that. This movie is not for the ignorant or casual hip-hop listener but rather for the seasoned conesiuer that REMEMBERS (not just heard about) when nobody even knew what rap was. This is not for the cats that think they know hip-hop becasue they went out and bought a bunch of old school records and now they think they're an expert. This is for heads that bought LL's "Radio" album when it was brand new in the store... not the one who just got it last week. This is for the REAL hip-hop heads...not the avant-guard backpacker who didn't buy RUN-DMC until after they became legends or thinks LL is different now than he was in '83.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see Dec 29 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I have read some of the reviews above and i am a bit disappointed. I saw this movie when it relased and I watched now, in 2002 and I still think it is great. Think about it. The artist, and there were many of them, were just in front of a camera, having fun and doing what they do. They are not actors, but they did well. The plot, well, it is true to life. It is what happened to def jam, so they brought it tot he screen.
Watching Krush Groove, i think back tothe silly clothes I wore and when I had the King of Rock RECORD and Radio by Ll Cool J. I still have those records too.
When you watch this movie, don't expect oscar nods, but non-actors doing what was around them and what they grew up with. In many cases, this was a film debut, too. I think it is a great movie.
