Not great, but quite brave and worth watching
12 March 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This film was made on a shoestring budget and it shows. However, this isn't really a serious problem. The grainy footage and cheap effects don't get in the way of an interesting plot and some brave film making. I say brave because in this super politically correct film, more and more film makers might feel inclined to soften racism in order not to offend--and in the process "white washing" the problem. Instead of politically correct language, the bigot uses tons of nasty and racially insensitive words--they certainly DON'T pull any punches here and I respect them for this.

I enjoyed the film but found it funny that the film actually ended exactly the way I once described what SHOULD happen to bigots when they get to heaven! Well done and I look forward to seeing more from these people.
