Excellent Film!!, 23 October 2008
Author: Keyon_Smith from United States

This was an excellent film!! It captures the rough times, drug wars and territorial beef in inner city urban neighborhoods and was displayed enthusiastically. The actors put on great convincing performances. All pictures, lighting and sound qualities were excellent for it to be an Indy film. Much props to the entire crew. Excellent job from the writer/director from Trenton, NJ Patrick Pierre. As well as Adrianna Gittens, co-writer. She did a fantastic job with the female characters. Pierre Films will definitely be back with more drama and more excitement in the near future. Look forward to seeing more from Pierre and Gittens, together and/or separate. These filmmakers will be making a lot of noise in the coming years.
