Very powerful, riveting, and moving
5 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was familiar with only a single name in the cast or crew, but I thought they did an excellent job. It's hard for citizens of Pleasant Valley to understand the hood and the mentality of the hoods who dwell there. This movie brought that environment to life. Was it totally accurate in its portrayal? I can't say for sure, but I'm willing to go out on a limb and state that it is not totally inaccurate. The powerful raw emotion of a man of God wanting to fight evil with evil and backing off just before crossing the line was gripping. This is one of the best Christian films I've seen for a while. Kudos to Cloud Ten Pictures and Andre Van Heerden for producing this gem.
