Storyline

In April 1992, following the notorious Rodney King verdict, the streets of Los Angeles became a battlefield, the backdrop to four personal intertwined stories. In Gold Mountain, Jeff Lee and his parents run Good Neighbor Liquor in South Central L.A. Theirs is an Asian family of "old world" values at odds with a modern world-cultures that are about to clash in ways they never imagined. In Caught in the Fever, a day at the mall for Manuel Alvarado, the eldest son of a poor Hispanic family, and his girlfriend Iris, spirals into a nightmare as they're drawn into the out-of-control frenzy of a violent afternoon. In Homecoming Day, Turner Coates returns to the South Central hood of his youth to visit his mother - a homecoming overshadowed by an inescapable threat.

Boomer's already in too deep... Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Ok movie
12 December 1998 | by REPROSee all my reviews

The only thing I thought was wrong with it was that it was too short, well now I know I saw a version that was 24 minutes shorter than the original version. That version is not very good but I´m sure the longer version is.
