Straight Outta Compton


Even though it has been almost a month since Straight Outta Compton hit theaters, people are still raging about it. The movie, which was released on August 14, earned $4.96 million from 2,264 theaters its first night. Since then, it has raked in more than sixty million dollars. Critics originally speculated that since the movie is more than two hours long, it would make less money than expected. However, I think SOC proved critics wrong because earning almost five million dollars the first night is pretty great. The movie is fulfilling and breathes life into the original story. The movie takes place in 1988 and “stirs controversy with its brutally honest depiction of life in Southern Los Angeles.” It is an amazing movie and I highly recommend it.
