An Amazing and underrated film
31 July 2008 | by (Milpitas, California) – See all my reviews

Spike Lee's film about inner city San Francisco is amazing. It intertwines the story as a white family from Mission District move to local projects, Hunters Point, who end up starting feud with the Chinese triad gangs from Chinatown. Lee does a great job tapping into stories of all 3 sides really well and actually gives better insight into the Mission district and Chinatown area than the storyline of the Hunter's Point mob. Overall its a well written film by Alex Tse, and i thought they did a great job of combining different elements and giving it a very original feel. Great cinematography by Cesar Charlone and music by Terence Blanchard.--- IMDb Rating: 6.6. MY Rating: 10/10
