Movie Info

From director RZA comes the explosive CUT THROAT CITY, the story of four boyhood friends in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward who return after Hurricane Katrina to find their homes decimated, with no jobs, and no help from FEMA. Out of options, they reluctantly turn to a local gangster, who offers them one shot at turning their situations around -- by pulling off a dangerous heist in the heart of the city. When the job goes bad, the friends find themselves on the run, hunted by two relentless detectives and a neighborhood warlord who thinks they stole the heist money.

Critic Reviews for Cut Throat City

All Critics (3)

'Cut Throat City' has the feel of an epic journey bolstered by the lyrical dialogue and the gothic scenery of New Orleans 9th Ward post-Katrina.

August 3, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A solid crime drama with real social bite to it, Cut Throat City boasts sharply drawn characters and a spectacular cast that make up for too many side plots and figures.

July 29, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There is a shorter version of Cut Throat City - one that better blends conspiracy and violence - that would elevate RZA's film. In the end, the film, like the bank robbers it follows, leaves just a little too much money on the table.
