Storyline

Rick and Melissa are a pair of young lovers hoping to get out of the slums for good and escape the poverty and crime their families and friends have gotten involved in. All this comes to an end when Rick feels he must rejoin his old gang to avenge the killing of his brother by a rival gang. In the course of getting even, Rick is arrested, leaving Melissa without anyone to protect her. She falls in with a crack dealer and quickly becomes addicted to the drug. When she gets sold to a drug kingpin by a minor dealer to pay off a debt, only Rick can save her. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

"Bitch, you stink!"
26 February 2009 | by (Corpus Christi, Texas) – See all my reviews

Brilliant. Cannon Films does it again. Man I enjoy this movie on so many levels, the hi-energy 1980's 'Rapping music' score, the brutally realistic depiction of the horrors of Crack addiction (Just Say No! kids), the politically incorrect portrayal of the Hispanic/Black LA gang wars, and the generally brutal and sadistic violence committed on the two fragile white girls by a host of visible minorities. The story is basically a tale of two lovers (a bi-racial couple) who get torn apart by the plagues of east LA circa the late 1980's; gangs and drugs. Will their love for each other help them over come these evils? The MGM DVD is brand new 2007 and Widescreen.
