Realistic and well-acted urban drama .
9 November 2005 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"Ghetto Dawg" is a well-made urban drama. J. King plays Tariq. He is a mechanic. He is forced into stealing cars for the evil gangster Gresh. He wants to stop this double life after he falls in love with Robin (Portia Cue). Getting out of the criminal life doesn't come easy. Can he escape?

Don't be fooled by the silly cover art. This is a movie well-worth seeing. The acting, writing and directing are way above average. You care about the characters. It's not predictable at all and that makes it realistic.

If you like this movie, you should watch the director's other film, "Simple Revenge".
