Jamaican cop returns to his old neighborhood in Kingston to deal with local criminals, 13 April 2000
Author: Bill Cavender from Washington, DC

In this well paced, down-to-earth film, we are introduced to "Capone," a tough "shoot-first, ask questions later" cop.

After a transfer back to his old neighborhood in "Dungle," one of the poverty-stricken tenements of Kingston, Jamaica, he uncovers a burgeoning gun running operation headed by the local Don, "Wonie".

Capone is a force to be reckoned with - one doubts he will encounter many problems -until he finds out that one of the Don's main men (Ratty) is the young brother of Capone's best friend from his youth.

The film captures some of the spirit of "The Harder They Come" in an updated fashion. The story remains tragic but is well complemented by true-to-life characters and a healthy dose of comic relief.

Subtitles could use work - there are times when you can understand the patois that they use subtitles. Other times dialogue is incomprehensible and no subtitles are used.

All in all a good job at portraying an all too common story in the tenements and "yards" of Jamaica. If you read "Born fi' Dead" and enjoyed it you will also enjoy this film.
