Overall a good film, but a bit preachy at parts.
18 March 2004 | by (ohio) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best urban drama's I've seen (that didn't have Denzel Washington in the credits). A solid cast from top to bottom, where actually I found Brian White to be the weakest, despite a good performance.

I've seen lots of positive reviews on Tracey Stone and T.J. Storm's performances, and while I agree, I personally thought Scottie Tate stole all the scenes he was in.

But a good film is not without it's flaws.

The opening titles with the timecode, I found very distracting from the scene. The soundtrack gets a bit repetitive and at parts doesn't seem right for the mood. There were several scenes where characters seemed to step out and preach about society. This could have been handled a little more deftly.

I'm not sure if you'll want to own this one as it is a bit depressing, but if you get a chance this is a movie that you should see at least once.
