Good film
27 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

Very good film. I thought it wasn't a film, but a documentary/film because the characters seemed to be real people. Is this a fictional movie or not? It's about basketball, the streets, lousy upbringings, and the pressures of success.

If you are a kung fu film fan, you probably have seen this film advertised on Arena video tapes in the previews and coming attractions.
