Pretty Gully, but overall falling short of expectations
12 June 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A pretty gripping story about the struggle of living in a Toronto hood called Jamestown, a place where drugs, violence, struggles, and Caribbean immigrants are strife.

the tales follows the story of a pair of friends who deal drugs together and live day to day, chasing women, drinking beers, and chopping drugs; one with aspirations of going clean and getting a job (Romeo from student bodies), and the other half-heartedly wants to step up his drug game in Missisauga, but would remain in Jamestown the rest of his life the movie is pretty anti-climactic, has a lot less clapping than you would expect, and overall seemed a little disappointing - but it was nice seeing something of a gritty inner-city thriller docudrama being made about Toronto

best character in the movie has to be Countryman played by Mpho Koaho, who plays the short-sighted, hair-brained G straight outa kingston
