Love This Movie
31 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was at the premiere for this movie at the Lincoln Theatre. It says it came out in 1998, but I am almost certain that I saw it back in 1995. I'm a little biased because I love low budget films and I love me some 'Chocolate City'. If you spent 400 mill on a movie, if it's anything less than the biggest movie ever made then you've failed as far as I am concerned. I don't exactly know how to sum up "24/7" (that's what it was called when I saw it), but I will say this. I was about 16 or 17 years old when I saw it and I can honestly say that even though I saw Menace II Society, Boyz In The Hood, Thug Life in DC, etc... this movie single handedly stopped me from ever wanting to become a drug dealer. Which says a lot since I was a totally different person when I saw this movie; half the age I am now. The funny part is that it wasn't the graphic violence, the language, music, or the bad acting (by the way, Henson has always been an award winning actress, she acts ghetto good, first movie I have ever seen her in), it was the intimacy. The movie feels so real you feel like one of your own family members got killed. The low budget-ness of the movie is what makes it so effective. I didn't even know about Divided City until now and I can't find a place that sells it. Streetwise will always go down in my book as one of the absolute best depictions of hustlin in DC movies. I'd rather watch this over and over again before I even think about watching some of these stupid movies these young go go bands put together (I call it TCBS). 40 year old men acting like thugs is pathetic.
