Entertaining!
30 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Issues" was entertaining and gave an interesting look into the male perspective. It was 'in your face" reality mixed with humor. There were many funny moments as well as some "ah-ha" moments. The content of the film was extremely thought-provoking, which could result in lively discussions about relationships between men and women. The film was paced well so you never felt as if you were waiting for it to end. The characters were "real" and easy to relate to. I loved Royce and Damien! The plot was a bit predictable, however, it was nice to see it wrapped up on a positive note. And of course, it's always great to see African-Americans portrayed positively in film. I look forward to seeing future films from this up and coming writer/director.
