Summary:

FEEL THE NOISE is a disquieting movie about a rap singer who must flee to Puerto Rico for his safety and a music style makeover. This thug lifestyle is dangerous to live and depressing to watch.

Review:

FEEL THE NOISE is a disquieting movie. Rap singers are not generally known for uplifting music and inspirational lifestyles. Rap is better known as the music of a thug culture where insulting anyone but the police may cost you your life. This movie does nothing to alter that reputation.

In FEEL THE NOISE, Rob tries to steal some hubcaps to get money to enter a rap contest. He is caught by the New York City police, but, worse, the hubcap owner is insulted. As Rob finally takes the stage to offer his rap to the world, the hubcap owner and friends come gunning for him. Wishing her son to stay alive, Rob’s mom sends him to Puerto Rico to live with the father he’s never known. There, he and his stepbrother make music mixing rap with Puerto Rican rhythms. “Spotted” by a lecherous record producer, they wind up back in New York City.

The movie plods its way toward a resolution that is supposed to be inspirational. Rob overcomes fear, jelosy and unforgiveness and launches into a promising career in pride, selfishness and sexual immorality. At one point in the movie, Rob accuses his father of selfishness even as his own exhibition of selfishness is worthy of an award.

If you enjoy going to hospitals to watch people suffer from AIDS, cancer and diahareea you may enjoy FEEL THE NOISE. Rob suffers from so many spiritual illnesses he exhibits chronic grumpitus through most of the movie. There’s just nothing entertaining about watching such suffering.

MOVIEGUIDE® recommends you not FEEL THE NOISE and buy the DVD of FLYWHEEL instead. Now there’s a truly inspirational movie.
