Storyline

Tony "Wise" Good, is an internationally famous model. He fought his way out of the inner city and rocketed straight to the top. He had it all... The career, the trophy wife, fame, fortune and all the luxuries that come with success. But his swift rise to the top did not take him high enough to protect him from the sudden fall he was about to experience. The corrupt corporate world, the government's support and participation in that corruption, and the jealousy and greed of people he knew best, all lead to a rapid downward spiral into a living hell. On the surface, "THE SYSTEM WITHIN" entices the audience with the sounds and style of the fast forward urban community. Beneath that surface we discover all is not what it seems when you are working in the system. Behind the facade and covert liaisons portrayed in the film, it becomes apparent that we all are captives in society and when we think we know the way out..we suddenly are trapped by THE SYSTEM WITHIN.

Great Acting
28 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Enjoyed this film and the great acting by most of the cast which deals with a male model who is very successful and has just returned from his business trip to his wife and child. All the friends of the model are either jealous or just don't care and their are some who want to destroy his life and career. There is plenty of blood and gore, good and bad sex and scenes in a jail which shows what prison life actually is all about In this film black is fighting black and the black ladies have their hands full to keep them in line.

This really is not that bad of a film and it will keep you entertained if you have not seen it. Enjoy
