Shows the great potential of one of our greatest actors
For a lower budget TV film, I was really surprised. When it started, it looked like a school video made to show kids why drugs are bad. I wasn't sure which way this was going to go when I put it on Netflix, but I had a feeling Denzel was gonna pull through! He's Denzel Washington for goodness sake! Honestly, if it weren't for him, this would have been a bit of a boring film. There is some cliché stuff in there and the quality is not too great, but with a good, grounded story, competent acting in the majority of the cast, and Denzel's skills, it's really a good movie. It's great to see him so young and so talented, before the fame. He really put his all into every performance, even when he wasn't making the big bucks. If you're into inspirational stories, films about education, or a Denzel fan, definitely watch it. You won't be disappointed.
