Makes the viewer think
24 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Against the Jab is a beautifully shot film with a winding plot that will keep you excited for what happens next and ultimately satisfy you deeply by its ending.

This film contains a lot of laughs as well as serious scenes and situations that are present in the life of many different Bostonians today. It contains issues and controversies that are facing the city now which makes this film relevant to the times we're living in. The characters are very realistic; excellently written and executed. It also has a sort of moral compass at the end that does not swat the audiences' hands, but makes the viewer think more profoundly about the choices the characters have made throughout the film.
