why the bad reviews?
22 July 2012 | by karlericssonSee all my reviews

This is most definitely an anti-racist film and an intelligent one at that. There is also a good love story thrown in, in fact two good love stories if you count the one between father and son. That latter one is maybe not explored enough and dealt with in a rather "cartoonish" way but what can you expect to cover during 90 minutes? Eric Roberts has never been better and as far as I can see, being a guy, never more attractive-looking. Never knew he had so much stile.

Definitely one of them feel-good films and a pity to miss. Lucky for me that I expect people who vote for films are usually made up by the same crowd that would vote for a noise like "Stairway to Heaven" being the best song written. The masses are always wrong and there's a lot of deception-work constantly needed to keep it that way.
