Trivia

The success of "New Jack City" got writer Barry Michael Cooper's script for "Sugar Hill" attention in Hollywood. With Wesley Snipes already attached, it seemed like a home run, but none of the major studios were willing to touch the material due to its bleak nature. The script was eventually picked up and financed by indie production company Beacon Communications. See more »

EXCELLENT
31 July 2002 | by (Farmington Hills, MI) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie with a tremendous performance by Wesley Snipes. He is a much better actor than he gets credit for, with terrific range.

A story of a street drug dealer trying to break free of the life he has led. Unfortunately, circumstances and people conspire to threaten his dreams. A very interesting, thoughtful movie, with a great performance by Snipes and Clarence Williams.
