My only complaint are the trailers for this movie.

I've seen two versions of the trailer. The first were on previews of rented videos in Tokyo. It made it look like one of those campaigns desperate to cash in on the teeny-boppers and younger 20s market. I avoided it for months thinking it was going to be high on frills, low on content. The second trailer was the one that stems from imdb. It gave a bit more of an image that it was a story, but scattered. After seeing g:mt, the trailer should've had narration to mold the pieces together therefore enticing movie-goers, or in most cases, video renters, that they would indeed be in for quite a ride, which afterwards, they'd want to go on again.

zcourser and jabsy simply wanted to add variety to the list of rave reviews g:mt greatly deserves. Fantastic job to all involved, particularly the writer, Simon Mirren, and of course, John Strickland whose vision of Mirren's story got us interested into each character. This movie is fresh in the way that it's fast paced, has YES! multi-racial characters you can relate to as well as those from which you'd rather repel. It makes bold statements we as people need to hear but makes them without preaching. The original music of the characters including a female on bass (which is cool because you don't see girls in bands enough), a dedicated brotha on the ebony and ivory, trumpet sounds with emotion and improvising vocals added on by a hot singer combining to provide an energetic yet dreamy musical background.

Although g:mt is directed to a young audience, this ain't no feel-good movie. The story is as real as it can get leading the viewer to consider the values of life and how anything can happen to change it, the values of our friends and how we treat them, and the responsibility we have of taking care of our children. The issues it attacks show us how these 22-year-olds cope with having to mature, quick.

G:MT has everything. Out of ten, I give it 9 stars.
