Compelling but Preachy
25 April 2003 | by (Huber heights, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Getting past the cheap straight to video bad editing and even more horrible lighting the story was decent and slightly believable. While it's not uncommon for a rags to riches family to suddenly lose their wealth and return humbly to the roots which they began the focus on the teenage main principal dissension from school book nerdness to half way hip drug dealer leaves one to question reality. Was expecting his new found unruly peers to want to forcibly take advantage of his smarts in their drug distribution routes but instead the naive principal suddenly wants to be down and join the process himself. Not only is this hi fetched but unreasonable to believe that a bookworm could even survive the intended thugs of the hood. Good intentions but overtly preachy towards the end in an odd showcase of concern from complete strangers. Even further to bring the point home the language AND music was edited to give the film a PG-13 rating. For the message to reach the intended viewers needs a stronger language that they will understand versus trying to attempt to bridge the family viewing hour. Hopefully the Bridge Brothers work harder on their next attempts.
