Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A film of empty, fetishistic violence in which murder is casual and fun."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"The acting is amateurish, the cinematography is atrocious, the direction is clumsy, the writing is insipid and the violence is at once luridly graphic and laughably unconvincing."
‑ Joe Leydon, San Francisco Examiner
"... for all its social and political potential, State Property doesn't end up being very inspiring or insightful."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, Nitrate Online
"Basically a static series of semi-improvised (and semi-coherent) raps between the stars."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"A dull, simple-minded and stereotypical tale of drugs, death and mind-numbing indifference on the inner-city streets."
‑ Rachel Deahl, Boxoffice Magazine
"A shoddy male hip hop fantasy filled with guns, expensive cars, lots of naked women and Rocawear clothing."
‑ Bill Pearis, Citysearch
"Lacks the visual flair and bouncing bravado that characterizes better hip-hop clips and is content to recycle images and characters that were already tired 10 years ago."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"No one involved, save Dash, shows the slightest aptitude for acting, and the script, credited to director Abdul Malik Abbott and Ernest 'Tron' Anderson, seems entirely improvised."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
