User ReviewsReview this title
The directing was horrible, the acting was like porn - only without the inherent benefits, the screenplay was an insult to the term 'mediocre', the sound production was awful, shot selection and editing were haphazard and disjointed.
The story drags, meanders, wanders, and jumps without rhyme or reason. The characters are completely unsympathetic, and stereotypes are blatantly perpetuated in caricature (redneck racist rapist; fat black "gangsta" with a "ho", lots of "bling", and an SUV).
Frank Vincent must have owed Joe Ariola a favor, as I was mortified by the inclusion of such a brilliant actor in such a deplorable film effort. I also expected more out of Chuck Zito (HBO's "Oz"), but his role was paper-thin - and he seemed to sleepwalk through it. Raekwon offers one of the most tolerable and believable performances as the head villain - and that, in itself, is a frightening fact.
Do not waste your time, hard-earned money, or brain cells on this festering puddle of biohazard waste. A truly lousy film - breathtakingly inadequate and insulting to the intelligence of an average 13-year-old.
Needless to say, neither she nor I could get past 10 minutes without finally begging the DVD tray to eject as fast as possible once we hit the button.
The premise of the movie is more interesting than the movie itself. Unfortunately, it needs subtitles for the ghetto English as well as actors that have at least had some theater experience in either high school or college.
The DVD would be better off as a coaster. I'm actually thinking that there may not be any substance that would actually alleviate the pain inflicted on one's eyes and ears with this production.
