Storyline

THREAT revolves around a street riot in NYC's Lower East Side. At the center of the riot are two friends (a homeless straightedge punk named Jim and a hip hop revolutionary father named Fred) who inadvertently cause the riot when they bring their street tribes together and fail to avoid a conflict that quickly spirals out of control. As the characters struggle through the chaos, some seeking to stop the violence and others seeking to escalate it, they face their own demons and find their own forms of redemption and damnation.

Oh my... the violence
6 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is really really violent. I was not expecting it to be quite so violent. It's not violent like an action movie though because you really hurt when you see it happening. The characters are all really interesting and well developed and that makes it all so much more painful to watch when they start killing each other. I saw the movie with my boyfriend and I didn't really want to see it but he loves the music. I think I ended up liking it more than he did. Saying like is weird because it's not the kind of movie you "like" in the way that you like maybe a comedy. I mean I was more effected by it than he was. I can't stop thinking about it so I guess that's a really good thing. Both the male leads are super hot too. Like WB hot. I have seen a lot of independent movies and usually the actors aren't much to look at well Threat gets extra points just for that haha
