  • A violent, kinetic gangster film with a strong anti-drug message, NEW JACK CITY is set in the mid-1980s during the height of the crack epidemic. Two street-wise undercover cops (Judd Nelson, Mario Van Peebles) go after Nino Brown (Wesley Snipes), a ruthless drug lord with extravagant taste in home furnishings. Desperate to bring down his multi-million dollar cocaine empire, they send Pookie (Chris Rock), a former street hustler and rehabilitated crack addict, into Nino's drug factory as an undercover spy. When the plan misfires, the cops must face Nino and his henchman in a bloody showdown.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...[Van Peebles directs with] energy and flash....Played commandingly by [Snipes]..."
    New York Times

    "NEW JACK CITY codified the hip-hop-gangsta image as much as any Ruthless Records release..."
    Rolling Stone

    "[I]t helped kick-start rap's march into the mainstream, and ignite black Hollywood."

    4 stars out of 4 -- "Ice-T, Queen Latifah and 2 Live Crew provide the soundtrack....It's still extremely watchable."
