Just bought it
19 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just watched this DVD. I was impressed at how even a cheesy story had two talented actors. Bokeem Woodbine is a Terence Howard in the rough. He needs that break out role! This movie was obviously super low budget. I kept wondering if I was watching video. The sets were extremely cheap looking. I want to see hood movies that are different. Character driven. I loved Deborah Cox. I don't understand how she to is not in more better quality juicy roles. Come on how can Craig Brewer get it perfect with hustle and flow and Directors from the hood can't? Cowboy director...keep trying. We need better quality stories! This story gets a D+ in my book.
