Depicted from an insighted view, 23 July 2004
Author: Felicity Spencer from USA

After watching the movie three times, I have concluded to give this movie a B+. The movie is obviously an independent film, it was filmed by UrbanWorks Entertainment. For the past year I have been thoroughly interested in new line independent films. They depict a realistic view of life from an inside source. You are the visitor in the movie seeing things from their eye.

Blue Hill Ave. gave a very hardcore/gangsta look at life in the ninety's for young people of color. Yet it showed that this was a way of life and they are just as real as anyone else. For instance, one scene showed Tristan and his family at the dinner table eating together. Father, mother, sister and son. In today's light everyone seems to think that there is no family institution in the urban area. Though that may be true, Tristan came from a solid background and still made his choice. This was about money it's evils. How did they die in the end? Over the money. That's what runs the drug ring in this country and in the film. The part with the young woman and himself wasn't cheesy but more simple. That was how it began for them. And for anyone who knows, thats the way they did it back then. It was all so real, and the young men who played them were four very talented young men. Not because they were playing gangstas and using profane language but because they were able to bring the liveliness of what the director was trying to portray. I enjoyed them most in the movie.

In conclusion, I loved the movie. Maybe I am biased because I came from a similar background yet I was able to make a choice to succeed. And when people watch this movie they will make a choice too.
