Trivia

The scene where CJ meets his fate wasn't intended to be a rain scene, as there was no rain during the actual blackout on August 14th 2003. Production halted several times, in hopes that it would stop. Everytime the rain stopped and the cameras started rolling, it would start to rain again. Finally, the director decided it was destined to be shot this way, thus adding a dramatic effect to the scene. See more »

Excellent drama - full of emotions and realistic human aspects
4 April 2008 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

This movie turned out perfect. It had the rich point of view of an indie film, while it had a perfect cast and Hollywood standard of high quality footage. The characters are very believable in this movie, and the brilliant scenes were creating a great atmosphere of a Brooklyn block house and its surrounding. The streets were very alive and I haven't gotten bored for a single moment while watching this movie.

Girls in the flick are beautiful and some even little 'hoochie', which makes them even more hot. Zoe Saldana, the beauty of Dominican origin and Susan Watson really shined in this movie. Also not well known Khalida Outlaw was great and Sara Pickett was a great discovery, which will hopefully be seen a lot in the future.

The story is believed to be based on true characters and events. I don't want to spoil anything, but I can surely tell the movie graduates into very realistic drama events. There were comments like the whole building up characters gets them nowhere in the plot. That's absolutely not true. Each characters have a set of very own approach and perception of the reality that's going on. I recommend this film to anyone, and I'm rating it 8.
