On April 15, 2016, the much awaited fourth film in the Barbershop series, Barbershop: The Next Cut, was released across the United States.
The newly released comedy has plenty of its cast returning from the previous films including renowned rapper and actor, Ice Cube, the always enjoyable, Cedric the Entertainer, and of course, popular comedian, Anthony Anderson.
In addition to these well-known faces, there would also be a few new ones introduced. Actress, Regina Hall, current rapper, Nicki Minaj, and fellow hip hop artist, Common, would be a few of the many selected to join the barbershop crew for the next film in the franchise.
“Barbershop: The Next Cut” centers around the barbershop, its employers, and their families as they face a threat that does not only affect them and the streets they live on, but the entire city. Unfortunately this is not just a threat that appears in movies and films, but in our society today all across the country, as they’re widely known as “gangs.”
The motion picture does an excellent job of depicting the tragic truth behind these gangs and the role they play in today’s communities, which can be quite the danger to all those who come into involvement with them, and sadly, the effects can be forced onto any unsuspecting person.
This movie holds a strong message behind it in regards to the hazards of these groups, showing that this is not a threat to be ignored by anyone.
While the feature film sends this message to its audience, it doesn’t fail to provide laughter and entertainment throughout the entire film, similar to its previous releases.
I greatly recommend this film, as it is one that will truly enjoy and appreciated by all who view it. “Barbershop: The Next Cut” will make its audience members want to hold their loved ones just a bit closer in addition to providing them with laughs the whole way.
