This was a good movie. I have to admit I was a little skeptical, I mean this is my first time seeing, Tip "T.I." Harris act and I did not want to be disappointed by another rapper turned actor. I would have to say that he did good, I liked the fact that he was able to keep his southern accent and the "TI" feel, but still get into the role of Rashaad. I didn't understand why the movie had to be centered around the local skating rink, but thought it was different. Never before that I can remember have I seen a movie where they focus on the different skating groups. This movie really made me want to break out my skates from back in the day and hit the local rink, like I used when I was in middle school. I say it reminds me of Boys In the Hood, because you have a group of friends all trying to make it out of the hood and you really want to know who will make it out, alive anyway. The movie definitely had funny parts, that will keep you interested. I wouldn't say this was your typical hood movie though, because there wasn't a lot of killing and baby mama drama, I think it actually had somewhat of a family feel by providing you with in site on Rashaad's family, but also by making you see the importance of sticking together during hard times. If you are bored, need a good movie to watch, that's going to lift your spirits, this would be the one. I would definitely watch it again, because it was overall a good movie.
