Very Good, Much Better Than I Thought It Would Be
29 July 2005 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a superb hood movie. I don't know why it isn't up their with all the other good ones.

It has an original story. Plenty of good plot development.

The acting was good most of the time. Sometimes it would seem a tiny bit bad but all and all it was pretty good. Bokeem Woodbine who plays the main character stands out, as does Fredro Starr who plays his friend. Also good acting by some of the younger members of the cast.

One thing that stood out was the soundtrack. Not just because it was rap music and this is a hood movie, the songs were appropriate to what was happening at the time in the movie.

Another good thing was the directing. Great job Forest Whitaker! That stood out as well.

Overall it should prove to be an entertaining, exciting and powerful movie with a powerful message. Another must see for hood movie fans.
