Brutal
19 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're offended easily -- or even not that easily -- this one might not be for you. Chronicles the day-to-day grind in the life of a rampaging low-level criminal and his pals in the Bronx. Dealing drugs, getting into fights at 24 hour markets, assaulting random people on the streets ... It's like a modern-day "Mean Streets," only even more gritty. Down n dirty, done guerrilla style, the dialog will make your jaw drop with its brutal, over-the-top authenticity. These are the kind of guys who berate Asian store owners for not speaking proper English, or bring their car to a screeching stop to jump out and beat up homosexuals. The film is hilarious at times but it's also grimly violent and unbelievably "un- pc." A very effective piece of independent filmmaking. Recommended, but definitely not for everyone.
