That movie was simply one of the best I've ever seen, just awesome.
30 September 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Two stories of two guys, running together. This movie is not some pro-Christianity stuff made by some right-wing super Christ freak. NO! This just tells about chances, helping and the good in ourselves. And damn believe me, cause I'm really not related to this religion in anyways. This movie was acted amazingly, Ving Rhames is simply one of my favorite actors. Music was well done. The character development was awesome. You can't give this movie something under 7, that's just not realistic. It blew me away. I can understand that some people don't like movies that play in black ghettos in the USA and so on but you have to just watch it and think about, it's really great.
