amazing movie, true story
19 August 2007 | by atdi1627See all my reviews

see i think the above person has it 100% wrong. I think they were trying to portray the suburban kids as trying to be what they thought was tough and urban. in the beginning they say something like this is real gangster, suburban gangster, none of that urban bullshit. or something like that. when in fact the real urban kids, the philly kids, were nothing like that. the acting made me feel like the kids were actual people. like it was a documentary and not a superbly acted movie, which actually made it better.

this is a true story. im from philadelphia and we had the father of the child come and speak to our school about violence. i didn't know about this film when that happened i actually just saw it (8/07).

i totally respect your opinion of the movie. but i think that it was an amazing movie, incredibly powerful and told a story that needs to be told. these kids totally pushed each other into thinking they were tough kids, they had to prove themselves but really proved that hurting people isn't the right way to go.

listen, i know i cant write and i know my argument is scattered, but give this movie a chance. i personally think it is amazing. i was having difficulty holding back tears at the end because it seemed like they were real people, not actors, like you and me.

amazing movie, powerful, definitely a must see.
