this might actually be the worst movie i've ever seen in my life.
14 April 2006 | by rjblack2See all my reviews

i think this movie was shot in 3 days, and was made for about eight dollars and fifteen cents. it's loaded with plot holes, anachronisms and 10-14 year old kids delivering cliché, over the top lines that even most adults wouldn't attempt. Beyond that, whoever wrote in the 'street gangs" clearly has no idea what a gang is ... and probably hasn't ever been anywhere near a street either. if you truly loathe yourself and just need to inflict some pain. then watch this movie. however, if you at all value your sanity, and do NOT enjoy repeating the words 'this is the worst movie i've ever seen." then do yourself a favor and watch something... ANYTHING else.
