An awesome journey
26 March 2000 | by (Los Angeles, United States) – See all my reviews

The film is like a rollercoaster ride of the heart. Director Lee successfully transmits the pain of growing up. There are some emotionally visceral moments, especially in the final third. But there are meditative moments as well. And action sequences are thoroughly exciting. All in all, it's a spiritual tour de force. Lee seems to have drawn his inspiration from Scorsese, and it shows. His future seems very promising. It's unbelievable that this movie is his debut feature. He seems so comfortable with the widescreen (anamorphic) canvas. The talented new actors, on the other hand, give some honest performances. I recommend this movie.
