About the Movie
Just as cool and topical today as when it first opened, New Jack City stars Wesley Snipes as the angel-of-death crack kingpin who holds a city in his grasp. Ice T, Judd Nelson and Mario Van Peebles (who also directs) play police officers who lay it all on the line. Chris Rock and Vanessa A. Williams co-star.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film's use of once-imposing, now-crumbling New York architecture is particularly effective in underscoring the story with an air of widespread urban decay.
Fresh: Filmmakers pull off a provocative, pulsating update on gangster pics with this action-laden epic about the rise and fall of an inner city crack dealer.
Fresh: Mario Van Peebles's drugland feature, a relentless, hold-on-to-your-hat experience, rarely lets up.
Rotten: It's still entertaining, but New Jack City now feels about as edgy as an old razor. And it's just as disposable.
Are you kidding me...ten dollars for a 1991 movie? I would pay 2 or 3, never ten! You have got to be kidding me! The five star rating is because I love the movie, if I rated the price then itunes would owe me five stars!
This is what you call, CLASSIC GANGSTA!!!
"New Jack City" was to the 90's, what "Scarface" was to the 70's. GET THIS MOVIE!!!
