Some acting's bad, but besides that "Belly" is an everyday crime film, only with alot of style and alot of truthfulness. DMX and Nas star as Tommy and Sincere(a modern day Butch and Sundance as Sincere puts it). They are thugs who rob night clubs. Then Tommy finds out about this new kind of drug, hooks up with his Jamaican druglord friend Lennox(one of the coolest performances), and builds an empire in Nebraska. Everything's cool until Knowledge(rapper Power) gets locked up and starts screwing Tommy's business up. He recruits Shameek(Method Man) to hunt them down and kill them. At the same time, Sincere starts to reconsider his lifestyle.
This isn't the greatest crime drama ever, but it is cool. DMX gives an outstanding performance. Nas' Sincere seemed a little dreamy at times, but his role still works. T-Boz outacts Nas because of the scene when Method Man breaks into her house and she freaks him out when she pulls a gun on him. Method Man gives an alright performance, but his role was too small. Taral Hicks plays Tommy's girl Kiesha, who in the end symbolizes woman power as she fights off Method Man.
As for the movie, there are alot of memorable scenes, the most being the opening nightclub robbery. Neon lights, glowing eyes, and quick getaways.
This is probably the biggest Hip-Hop cult movie. For these being debut actors and a debut movie director, this movie's amazing. The best is that most of the same things that we found wrong with this film, Hype(the director) found himself. It would've been better if it hadn't been edited so much(Hype says in the commentary that the movie was like 3 hours originally). The last stand of Lennox is a little like the last stand of Tony Montana in Scarface, but it is more realistic and stylish. Anyways, good performances, great directing, awesome cult classic.
Cop this!

When I first heard that Artisan would be releasing a brand new special edition of "Belly", I was intrigued. I already owned the original DVD release which was alright but a little light in the special features category. On it, director Hype Williams spoke on a number of scenes that were omitted from the final release. He talked about wanting to put together a "director's cut". With this edition, I was hoping that we would finally get to see the footage he talked about.
Much to my dismay, this entire "Special Edition" is one of the weakest and most half-baked attempts to re-sell the same DVD twice that I've ever come across. Not only is there no added material from the actual movie but the special features included have me more confused than most viewers were with the original version of this film. The so-called "Deleted Scene" is actually just one solid shot of a bunch of people standing in front of some strippers at a night club. When they turn around, their bare breasts are blurred out like some TV reality show or something. I find it very hard to believe that this was ever even intended to be in the movie as the inclusion of it would make no sense once so ever. In fact, I think it's safe to say that it's probably just some daily from one of the filiming days at the strip bar. As for the "Spoken Word Featurette", it is actually just a bunch of people performing live poetry based on some of the characters in the movie. What The?!?! The only added feature that has anything to do with the movie is the music video for the song, "Grand Finale" off the film's soundtrack. Even the advertised bonus CD soundtrack is not the full album but eight songs from it thrown on a disc. The rest of the features are just recycled from the previous DVD release.

Hype William creates a great movie which is like the typical gangster movie. The main character starts off, gets more and more successful, is at the top of his game, and BOOM -- it's over.
So it is like that, however, this is a well-crafted urban gangster story with rappers Nas and DXM as the movie's two main characters.
The story also has a twist where both are able to achieve redemption in the end.
I believe that this is a 5-star movie, but I deducted a star. The reason for this is I already had the old release of the movie and bought the movie for the deleted scenes. However, there is only 1 deleted scene in a strip club that is censored and only lasts less than a minute.
There also is a soundtrack, however, it is just the old soundtrack that came out when the movie was originally released.
My advice -- buy the original version if cheaper, even thought the black cover does look cooler.

The story has 2 main characters Nas(sincere) and DMX(tommy)...Tommy the brains and the head of their opperations see's on the new that theres a new form of cocaine and its very potent. Tommy is down for whatever as long as he gets his money. his greed and envy is going to get him caught up. Nas is still the hard straight from the street person but he is a family man and studies the bible and see more to life than the money.IDK how these other people think its a long music video because its not at all. great movie and unlike most movies the begining is boring but not in this movie..me and my friends couldnt stop watching it.movie makes you think about the bigger picture and who really are your friends?
