Clash is a tightly-knit urban story about how hopelessness and violence can be replaced with redemption... but it can be a long, bloody road. Set against the backdrop of gang violence and police corruption, the movie ultimately leaves the viewer with a positive message of the important choices facing us all, whether its family, love, racism, revenge or forgiveness.
Great performances by Daniel Venegas, Damon Whitaker and Dave Fennoy. The scenes between Venegas and Fennoy, as student/teacher, are particularly powerful and are the basis of a lot of the film's messages. Whitaker is as powerful as his famous relative, and delivers a bad guy performance that makes your skin crawl.
It's a low-budget film, but many of the performances, Zirilli's direction, and some solid writing make it engaging and thought-provoking from beginning to end.
