What a great film
23 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this movie Against The Jab at the AMC theater in downtown Boston. I was amazed by the dual genre the film has that was so powerful. How can someone achieve that? a mix of comedy and drama in the same film that is so well done and successful. When the funny time comes with all the prank phone calls the movie is very funny. On the other side story about DJMike life the story gradually becomes very intense and dramatic. The scenery of Boston was fantastic. By just watching the movie you will see the beauty of the city the aerial shot is mind blowing. I would suggest a little more color correction in the audience reaction shots. Other than that the movie is great.

This is the best film I've seen so far this year. All the actors were wonderful great performances. The entire cast had a great chemistry. Everyone was so natural. the story unfold before your eye as if it is really going on. The movie story line is Awesome. I highly recommend this film Job well done.
