Premise is great, Movie is bad.
19 November 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is really disappointing because it has such a great premise behind it with the idea taken from the Harriett Beecher Stowe story "Uncle Tom's Cabin", at least loosely taken from it. I really like Ossie Davis as an actor (R.I.P.) but the acting in this movie isn't very good at all in fact over all the quality of the movie is just bad like it was just quickly slapped together in a weekend or something. I blame the director mostly for the bad acting and poor quality of the movie over all, the script obviously wasn't very good but not quite terrible either. It is still an interesting movie and the music in it is great, I think it is almost worth watching just for the great soundtrack alone, and to see a younger Ossie Davis of course.
