The Illegal Street Football League. The games are played in dead-end streets or in empty warehouses. Fire hydrants and light poles are obstacles. Gamblers around the world watch the I.S.F. on TV. It is fast,violent.

Is it just me, or is this film horribly underrated?
Wow - this is a surprise. Watch it because it's proof that a lot of IMDBers are really full of crap pawns that care more about peoples' opinions of their opinions than they do about whether or not the movie is actually any good. Stupid sheep. This was very emotional, GREAT characterization, awesome photography, and extremely convincing dialogues. I'm from the ATL, trust me this is pretty accurate. This flick really does a fabulous job portraying what some folks struggle with overcoming stereotypes, growing up, and finding their place in their world. If you appreciate an honest review then go see this sucker
otherwise you probably didn't even read this far.
