More than what it seems
22 May 2010 | by danceability-1See all my reviews

More than what it seems! Let's just say this film is full of surprises. I was impressed with the quality of the film and the overall cast as well. I would definitely recommend this movie! This film impressed me! I thought this would be just another NYC crime flick but they tackle some real issues that New Yorkers are experiencing in several of the newly gentrified neighborhoods. This movie also taught me some stuff I didn't know about New York City's first settlers (hint: it was not the dutch). Bryce Wilson and Mel Jackson are great on the screen. I would give 10 except for a couple scenes that are a little too corny, other wise a great flick!
