The Reviews for Gridlock'd (1997) 720p

Better than Requiem for a DreamReviewed bydeckard39Vote: 7/10

I just saw this film an hour ago and i have to say this is a better drug-related film than requiem for a dream. The film features Tim Roth and Tupac Shakur as two addicts who try to kick the habit after their friend (Thandie Newton) falls into a drug induced coma. After being given the run-around by various clinics and offices, they decide to fall back on some drugs before they get into rehab but are chased through the city by a drug dealer and police officers. Tupac and Roth are a great on-screen duo and the film does a good job of showing the grittier side of drugs and the difficulty of quitting. I highly recommend this film as one of Tupac's best and Roth's most obscure roles. Altogether a great movie.

Clever, sharp and immensely funny.Reviewed bySpikeopathVote: 8/10

When their friend Cookie {Thandie Newton} overdoses, Spoon {Tupac Shakur} and Stretch {Tim Roth} make the decision to kick their drug habits. However in spite of their determination they find themselves constantly hampered by red tape. Shunted from building to building the boys have enough on their plates as it is, but they also have the small matter of an irate drug lord after them as well.

I tuned in to watch Gridlock'd expecting a buddy buddy nonsense piece of fluff, what I actually got was a darkly funny satire on the health-care state of America and an interesting flip side to the life of the drug addicted. Never one sided in its sympathies to either side of the fence, Vondie Curtis-Hall's {writer and director} picture throws up interesting posers whilst poking us in the ribs along the way. Both Shakur and Roth are excellent, creating a rich chemistry that is as believable as it is potent. The direction is relaxed, with Hall content to just let the cameras follow these guys from one situation to another. And the dialogue is zippy and easy on the ears. Some scenes, in spite of the expected contrivances, are hilarious, with one particular stabbing scene being an absolute riot {I kid you not}. To which leaves a film just crying out to be discovered by more people.

The film serves as a fitting tribute to Shakur, who was sadly murdered before this film was even released. On the evidence of this piece, the music world not only lost a supremely talented poet of the street, but cinema also lost a talented actor. R.I.P Tupac Shakur 1971-1996.

Great MovieReviewed byComancheroEatsHisShoeVote: 9/10

Great movie! One of the best movies i've ever seen! This film shows how hard and difficult is to quit drugs and find a place for treatment when you're a poor person! Great acting, great plot and very well direct. This is NOT another movie about drugs and drug addicted only, its about burocracy of the healthcare system, how bad it is unless you have money and how it affects this people.

Watch this movie if you can, its really good.
