A Real Surprise- "Hear me?"
25 June 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I was really intrigued by the commercials. It seemed like it would be very real and it totally was.

A VERY authentic take on the problems of some in the Caribbean community here in Toronto. I recognized the characters- they were not contrived and overdone. Young guys selling a little something to get by but it's no big deal. Some people getting big on their perceived position and power. Respect becomes an issue. Somebody dies for nothing- just to put a fear in people. The witness part- well I wish that was more realistic but it was a great idea of what COULD happen if people stood up. SO much of it was really AUTHENTIC to people I've known and things we have seen here in different areas of Toronto. The only poor part was SOME of the accents but overall, they were still good. MUCH BETTER than poor Denzel Washington's effort in The Mighty Quinn or Doug E Doug in "Where I Live." K.C. Collins was excellent through some major emotional crises and Mark Taylor was lovely. Mpho Koaho was definitely scary and foolish enough to be believable.

It was such a surprise to set aside time to see a Canadian... MADE-FOR-TV movie and actually find it to be great! I would have paid to see it. It should be a series.
