Hard to believe, but enjoyable to laugh at
14 January 2004 | by perryjk316See all my reviews

I picked this movie up as a pre-street at blockbuster where I work. This was coming out and so too was "Thirteen." Both seemed to be about the same thing, 13 yr olds in situations we aren't accustomed to seeing them in.

Two groups of Middle Schoolers, ages ranging from 9 to 13, are acting like they are stereotypical gangs: fighting each other over territory, drinking heavily, and all about guns. Of course, they don't think they are a gang when confronted by the authorities.

There is this Drug Dealer around the way, who is also a minor being 16 yrs old, that places a hit on both of the so-called gangs. He is a drop out from school and now bides his time dealing and such.

The movie progresses by telling through the eyes of "gang" and all the things that lead up to the finale.

The movie was nicely made, the acting seemed a little weak and the most of the movie seemed to unbelievable. It was a good watch to me, held my attention and almost made me weep at one scene.

I'd give it 6 of 10.
