    Let’s get the obvious out of the way, this is a low budget film, so was the other films Mykal fax was involved with, the difference between this movie and “Bashment a fork in the road” and Jamaican Mafia is that Bashment feels like it was made by some guys with limited resources that made the best with what they had while Jamaican Mafia makes you feel like they didn’t really care to try very hard. Is Jamaican mafia the answer too the all time king of Jamaican gangster films “Shottas” ? Truth is it can’t even hold a candlestick to “third world cop” There are parts of the movie especially in the first 20 minutes where you find yourself openly laughing at the acting and screenplay. The words “please make it stop” were uttered by people I had invited over too see it. The one saving grace in this movie is Paul Campbell. His seasoned acting skill and experience provided a rather brutal contrast for lack of those qualities in his co-stars he managed a decent job in spite of being handicapped by just about everything . Massup one of main characters played by Stokely “Thrilla” Brown a fixture in previous movies Mykal Fax was involved in. His acting wasn’t bad but his part suffered from a poorly written script, he’s still rough around the edges but with improvement it would be interesting too see him take a leading role in a movie in this genre. Mykal Fax in the leading role disappoints his acting skills seemed to have actually worsened from his previous movies, at times its difficult to take him seriously. I found that he felt far more genuine in “Foreign” The film suffers in every which way director film editing, script, special effects, everything. Its not very often that Jamaican movie productions come out and even when its borderline terrible we tend to want to be supportive. But these guys have made several movies before (although the previous director Steve tehut- 9 McAlpin was missing, one must wonder how that affected the film) and should be criticized based on what we already know them to be capable of.If you watch this movie you will probably never watch it again. If you haven’t seen it you are not missing anything.

    This movie was just awful and it shows in their 24hr stream only platform. Poor acting from all involved, poor scene progression and cinematography, poor script, and poor everything else. Even with limited female nudity and it is still just awful. Not even laughably bad. This movie is so truly dreadful and such a blight on the industry that to watch it should have a surgeon general’s warning because I think it may cause cancer. I made an appointment with my doctor and he sent me to a specialist just to be certain that I’m OK. Give me 3rd World Cop, Dancehall Queen, Shottas, or Belly any day over this dribble.AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

    good plot, however the acting needed work. Jamaica Mafia is a fairly good movie, the plot is rather interesting and the motif of the gangster life is vividly outlined. Additionally, the character Sojie, was executed powerfully and i would argue he is the best played part.All in all the movie made it’s point to bring out the gruesome truths that embody ghetto life. On the contrary, there were some very alarming cons in this movie, the protagonist “zoolian” at times was out of character, i would argue that he along with the actor playing the role of “dranko” were trying too hard to convey a “gangster” image that they came off as comical rather than intimidating. Additionally, the growth in the character zoolian was not clear as the movie seems to argue he was born a gangster. All in all it was a good movie, not a five star favorite but a fair movie to watch to probe your mind.

    The film focuses on the life of Zoo-Zoo Anderson (Mykal Fax). His father was a mafia man who was murdered when he was a young child. His mother took him and fled to NYC where he is an ex-disgruntle employee with authority issues. He meets his uncle (Paul Campbell) who is the head the Jamaican Mafia. His uncle grooms him to take over, while fighting a rival gang lead by Awillah (Stanley Ras General Onwu ) a Nigerian Voodoo priest who wears a nightgown.The movie has English subtitles for Jamaican English. In the opening scene the acting and directing appears horrible, but it either improves or you become numb to it after a few hours. We know Zoo-Zoo is educated by his over use of the phrase “per-se.” This is one of the best Jamaican Mafia crime films, although at times it got difficult to sit through, in part due to the length.Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity.
