Who doesn't like a good ole gangsta film?
13 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Slang dialogue shot from the HIP packing a GAT held by an aggressive gangsta. You have to appreciate something that paints a picture of the unfortunate life of many. When these movies are done well, you realize your own luck.

Earl Coleman (Mike Simmons) loses his sister to drugs while in prison. From that moment on, he condemns his ex gangsta life style. The thugs are still in town, and Earl must live his clean life surrounded by filth.

Tim McCann must be an OG cause he writes/directs/films/produces/edits a very raw unfiltered view of the hood. The up close and personal camera work really adds a layer of intensity that allows you to actually feel the tension of the scene. By performing 5 of the key roles, McCann saves a portion of this small budget to bring on some fantastic talent. In particular, Mike Simmons genuinely delivers a righteous individual fighting to control his sanity.

Help this team out; spark a jay, sit back, and enjoy this undiscovered film.
