People always told Santos he was something special. His Uncle told him to get a skill, so he became a hustler and with his three,they became "The Stick Up Kids" Harlem would never be the same. They thought they had it all... Money, cars, the lifestyle and the lingo. The only two words They didn't know were JURISDICTION AND GENTRIFICATION but in their world it was all for one and one for all until an unexpected, mysterious death, forced "The Stick Up Kids"to change their focus from doing crime to stopping the "North Manhattan Project". Now it was up to Santos to pull off one last sting before it destroyed them all. Watch out America. 'The Stick Up Kids" are coming to your town! Written by

This film really impressed me! I thought this would be just another NYC based crime thriller but they actually tackle some real deal issues that New Yorkers are experiencing in several of the newly gentrified neighborhoods (Harlem, Williamsburg, Ft. Greene, Bed-Stuy). This movie also taught me some stuff I did not know about New York City's first settlers (hint: it was not the Dutch). Overall the cast if pretty solid. Bryce Wilson and Mel Jackson are stand outs, they did an excellent job in this one! Aside from some odd and corny scenes this DVD is pretty good all the way through. I'd recommend for a night with the fellas, kicking back and playing dice!
