Rappers and secret agents are coming to the silver screen this weekend with “Straight Outta Compton” and “Man from U.N.C.L.E”
Straight Outta Compton – R
The group NWA emerges from the streets of Compton, California in the mid-1980s and revolutionizes Hip Hop culture with their music and tales about life in the hood
Critics Consensus From Rotten Tomatoes: Straight Outta Compton is a biopic that’s built to last, thanks to F. Gary Gray’s confident direction and engaging performances from a solid cast.
Man from U.N.C.L.E. – PG-13
In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons.
Critics Consensus From Rotten Tomatoes: The Man from U.N.C.L.E. tries to distract from an unremarkable story with charismatic stars and fizzy set pieces, adding up to an uneven action thriller with just enough style to overcome its lack of substance.
