Goofs

When Jimmy test fires the gun in the vacant lot, he cringes and turns away, inexperienced. But when the gun goes off, there is no recoil or gun smoke, only the sound of the gunshot, showing that the gunfire is sound editing; someone who never fired a gun before, especially firing with one hand, would not expect the recoil.

Great movie!
24 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie! I hightly recommend checking it out. I went to go see it when it first showed in chicago last December. I really wish more movies like this would come out. i would like to see more "black" movie producers produce movies of substance and stop with the stereotypical garbage! High five to Tanya Hamilton! Great job to all the actors and actress who started in the film as well. The ending of the film leaves one yearning for more. I would like to see a part two if this is possible. I look forward to checking out more of her movies in the future.

peace, Akil
