Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Notorious is like a piece of well-crafted bling. It looks good, and facets of it shine, but behind the gilded facade there's not much there. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The movie leaves us with the sense that, twelve years after Biggie Smalls's death, a lot of people are trying to extract whatever profit or pride they can from the chaotic life of a young man who was, as he well knew, a work in progress. – David Denby, New Yorker, Mar 5, 2009

Fresh: If Milk set the standard for biopics in 2008, then 2009 is off to a strong start with Notorious. – Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: For a hardcore fan of his music and his life, it rings true. – Ben Lyons, At the Movies, Jun 24, 2010

Living The Dream

First of all, I would like to say that I am a loyal fan of the late Christopher Wallace, A.K.A. The Notoriouse B.I.G. Watching him build his career from rags to riches, to following his dream, and believing in himself and others, gives me the inspiration and a little hope, that I could do the same. The movie, NOTORIOUS, pertray's the life of Christopher Wallace, A.K.A. The Notorious B.I.G. the closest way, that I believe, to how his dream unfolded and became a music ICON. NOTORIOUS also gives the viewer an understanding of Christopher Wallace that, until now, hase'nt been revieled to the public.

FIRST REVIEW: What's so hard to understand. Both the original and Director's Cut versions are 15$ each. This one is more worth it. Notorious BIG lives on forever!!!


If your a true fan you will BUY this movie! This a GREAT movie, it actually goes into depth, and detail about B.I.G. life. All the actors did a good job in setting the tone in this film, DEFINATELY IZ WORTH THE PRICE!
