Watching Grace is like having a storm in your head., 27 August 2004
Author: rastafar_ian from Bayville, NJ

I'd like to make a comment about the man who made this movie. If his first feature is this good, just how good is his next one going to be? Grace and the Storm honestly blew me away. I couldn't believe it when I first saw it.

It's one of those movies that you can't stop talking about and you want to go see again and again. Everything ties in brilliantly. There is a multitude of levels to this movie that really keep you thinking. The characters are wonderful and you just want to keep watching them.

The best thing about it is this isn't your average drug movie. It's a tender drug movie with heart. Don't get me wrong. It does have its share of good fight scenes and heart-pounding, head-throbbing suspense; however, you get into the characters to the point where you really care about them a great deal. They are the main focus, not the drug. To me, the movie is not about the drug. It is about the struggle of a dealer who somehow is wrapped up in a life he feels he doesn't belong in and is looking for a way out so he can just enjoy the fruits of his labor. At the same time, there are many missions from other characters which add to the levels in this story.

I'll leave it at that and let you see the rest for yourself. All I have to say is that you're a fool if you don't see Grace and the Storm.
