This was one of those, cry at times because you feel the pain, laugh at times and cheer the underdogs. It is very true that people need to adjust their thinking on juvies who make a mistake. After the do the time the crime is paid for and they, as well as adult offenders, deserve a second chance. I am a mother of two good boys who made a bad choice. I hope the movie showed them that the choices made will hinder you. I think the Rock and Exhibit were very good. I am glad my boys wanted to watch this film. There was an excellent message. I would recommend this film to everyone. You really get a chance to see the inner workings of gangs and what they are really like.
