SATURDAY STRAIGHT OUTTA COMP­TON

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

6PM FOX­TEL PRE­MIERE ★★★

Hip-hop pi­o­neers NWA’s land­mark 1988 de­but album (from which this biopic takes its name) still sounds like a live broad­cast from a war zone. This long movie hits max­i­mum im­pact in a grip­ping first half where the rap col­lec­tive rapidly get their abra­sive act to­gether, then rush head­long at an un­sus­pect­ing world. This is where the likes of Ice Cube and Dr Dre got their start. Know their names? Then you know you want to see this.
