Storyline

COALITION is a realistic depiction of how New York's lucrative construction business is systematically shaken down by minority non-union labor. Our story is about one man's quest to go up against the cities largest and most dangerous coalition group, the SBM, "Survival of the Black Man" coalition. This is an extremely hard-hitting, gritty, modern day "On the Waterfront." A true-to-life voyeuristic view of how both sides of the law is pitted against each other. The story was written by Joseph Ariola, a long time member of the Operating Engineers Union in N.Y.C. Joe hired retired Detective Robert Cea to work on the movie script with him. The story is based on the true inner workings of the police trying to infiltrate the corrupt coalition workers; the mob middle men setting up these coalition deals; the unions trying to organize against impending layoffs due to the cheap unskilled non-union labor; and, one man stuck in the middle trying to battle the mob, killer coalition bosses from ...

Not even worth a free rental at your local library
11 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

...my girlfriend grabbed this at our local library on a whim.

Needless to say, neither she nor I could get past 10 minutes without finally begging the DVD tray to eject as fast as possible once we hit the button.

The premise of the movie is more interesting than the movie itself. Unfortunately, it needs subtitles for the ghetto English as well as actors that have at least had some theater experience in either high school or college.

The DVD would be better off as a coaster. I'm actually thinking that there may not be any substance that would actually alleviate the pain inflicted on one's eyes and ears with this production.
