Nice flick with motivational impact!
8 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a few shots the viewer is able to understand there's some drug dealing going on without actually having to see any drugs. Very soon we see the motivational/educational message coming through when Jason the top dog watches Linda getting kidnapped while heading to her car. Jason doesn't hesitate a second, runs and jumps like a big cheetah following the kidnapper and you get the impression that it's the only thing you can do in that situation. Though it's obvious he could have collected the money instead and not have bothered what's happening on the street. After a realistic fight where he knocks out the kidnapper, he manages to awaken the fainted Linda, which is also shown realistically and charmingly. The simple camera-work - possibly solely used the Canon EOS 5D - and the basic lighting do have a positive effect on the believability; the content and message are delivered at ease.
