Unlikely to bond
5 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Real life siblings Mario and Melissa Van Peebles star as brother and sister about Mario coming home to the South Bronx after a stretch in a Mexican prison. Some of the neighborhood toughs find out in short order he can handle himself.

At the same time two other younger siblings Brendan Ward and Melissa Esposito are running away from a foster home they've been placed in after their parents died. This is one really bad foster home where the foster parents have a sideline in kiddie porn from the charges that are sent there. One of Ward's friends has gone missing and he's decided it's time to split.

Mario and Brendan are an unlikely pair to bond, but bond they do and in the end sort of help each other.

South Bronx Heroes is shot in the South Bronx, I certainly recognized some of the locations. It's a sincere effort and young Mr. Ward is most appealing in his performance. And they certainly sound like kids from New Yawk.

Sad to say the production values are lacking and the cast could have used better direction.
