This movie is definitely a memorable hood movie, don't know why it's not up their with the others.
The thing that stood out the most in this movie was that it is not a basketball movie. It's a hood movie. I was expecting it to be a basketball movie set that just happens to be in the hood, but no. Still, it's got a lot of action packed exciting basketball scenes in it. While it's not a basketball movie, any fan of basketball should enjoy it.
Overall it's a good movie. Should be a good watch for fans of hood movies, fans of basketball, or both.
