Will Spike Lee’s ‘Chi-Raq’ Fly? [WATCH]

Due in limited release December 4, Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq centers on the extreme violence on the streets of Chicago. Based on the Aristophanes comedy Lysistrata, women withhold sex from their gangbanging boyfriends to force them to end their neighborhood warfare. Chi-Raq stars Teyonah Parris as Lysistrata along with Samuel L. Jackson, Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Angela Bassett and John Cusack.

And so, does Chi-Raq look more promising than Spike’s most recent works (Oldboy, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, Red Hook Summer)? Sound off below!
