Kevin Hart is a comedian/ actor that was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kevin won several comedy contests in New England before he got his big break. He has also appeared in numerous movies and TV shows such as “Soul Plane” and “Think like a Man.” Kevin has already toured all around the world and released several comedy DVDs. His latest comedy release “Kevin Hart: Let me Explain,” follow Kevin as he performs to a sold out crowd in Madison Square Garden.
The areas I did like about “Kevin Hart: Let me Explain” were the intro and the music. The intro to the comedy segment of the film was very thoughtful and gave a good brief description into the background of Kevin Hart. It was well done and the highlight of the whole movie. After the intro, the rest of the film felt like a sudden decline into bad jokes and over the top unnecessary over-acting. The music was also really good and helped speed an otherwise slow comedy session. The opening theme with Snoop Dog, Eric Sermon, Method Man and RL was my favorite song and something I downloaded for sure after watching this film.
Sadly, I found little comedy in this supposed stand-up comedy film. Kevin Hart over-reacted for most of it and his jokes had little substance and were poorly delivered. I know Kevin Hart isn’t Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, and Dave Chapelle and I shouldn’t compare him to these other great comedian, but I did not see myself laughing once throughout the film. Kevin came off as more irritating and annoyingly narcissistic when he does not have much to show for it. I’ve seen some of his previous work and was already not impressed with him, but this movie made me lose what little respect I already had for him.
There are so many other great comedians out there that are worth more of your precious time than “Kevin Hart: Let me Explain.” This film shows how much Kevin Hart has sold out and seems to have run out of material. I do not in any recommend watching this movie and suggest you check out anyone else but Kevin Hart until he improves his acts. If the music and the intro are the highlights of the whole film, I see a huge a problem with this stand-up comedy film. For those reasons, I am giving “Kevin Hart: Let me Explain” a “D-.”
