Notorious, with a superb cast, is a profound, suspenseful, and entertaining story about a mega star–Biggie Smalls.
Review in Video — by Christine Lakatos — on May 20, 2009

What do I do for fun? I watch a lot of movies. Now that I am a writer for Blog Critics, movies have a a whole new meaning for me. Even though I am a movie buff, I am very selective on which ones I like (which are very few these days). A few weeks ago I watched a great movie, Notorious, and submitted my review for Blog Critics.

Notorious, with a superb cast (Angela Basset, Derek Luke, Jamal Woolard, and Anthony Mack), is a profound, suspenseful, and entertaining true story of a mega star, Biggie Smalls, chronicling the life and death of Christopher Wallace. With talent and determination, Christopher seemed destined for fame and fortune. However, at an early he was led down the dark path of dealing drugs on the streets of Brooklyn, which eventually lead to his arrest and finally resulted in prison time.
Christopher was raised by a single mother (a faith-filled one at that), who truly loved and cared for her son. It was tough love from his mother that changed Christopher’s destiny, and it was in jail that he began to compose his rhymes - “Frustrations turned into rhymes and those rhymes told my story.”
Ultimately he changed his game from hustling on the streets to “rapping” on stage. With Puff Daddy by his side, he made it big: Christopher Wallace became Biggie Smalls.
