Not all that...
20 January 2015 | by blissdrums-217-498301See all my reviews

An odd little flick: these 3 fools did everything but wear name tags when they robbed the bank in question. They bragged about at school the next day! It's almost as if he robbed the bank to go to prison to have a reason to make this film. There is one disturbing scene when the film maker confronts one of his "victims" who was at the bank that day and he doesn't get the "You're forgiven" response so many others in the film give him. Instead of the scene becoming a chance for the film to get at something much deeper, about crime & punishment, being black in America, etc., the film maker walks away. Not even an "I'm here to say I'm sorry" - nothing. The film maker also only did a few years in prison, and he's 300 lbs and 6' tall! Try going to prison for 20 years at 17 when your 5'6" and 120 lbs, cause it happens every day. THOSE are the people who's stories would make for an "Evolution of a Criminal" film. Not this guy. Evolution of a criminal? Not really. I'd hardly call this person a criminal. He barely did any time, and he still doesn't seem to take much responsibility for his actions and the repercussions those actions created. Worth seeing once, but, not at all what it is trying to appear to be.
