A really great movie to see.
23 September 2005 | by realenttvSee all my reviews

This is a film I really enjoyed. I had the pleasure to see 17000 Block 9/22/05 at the Star Theater in Detroit. I went in having thought it would be more of the same in your hood movies. Not so. 17000 Block was both entertaining and well written. All the actors done a wonderful job and was very convincing in their roles. During the entire movie it kept you wondering what was going to happen next. I would without a doubt recommend you see this film. It's well worth the cost of admission or on DVD. I'm a filmmaker myself(Real Entertainment Media & Films) and I'm not to quick to give up the props but it's well deserved in this case.I really mean that.Detroit is in the game now. Good Luck!! See ya at the top!!
