Premium----A Must See Film!
15 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Premium is one of the best films of the year. It is exciting, intriguing and jaw-dropping. The story line is one that all audiences could relate to in some way or another. Each character is well scripted and portrayed. The writing is phenomenal as well as the directing. The direction especially stood out, the characters are directed in a way so they are believable and so the audience could sympathize and feel compassion for them. Premium is not the average love-story, it had twists that keep you wanting more. Its depiction of African Americans as well, was mind-blowing. Viewers are able see African Americans in a different light, other than the average stereotypical character seen in films. I am recommending this film to any and every one. A different approach is finally taken to express creative freedoms. Pete Chatmon did an excellent job with both the writing and directing. Chatmon will hopefully be recognized for his amazing creative abilities and the film's overall presentation.
