Storyline

Ghetto teenager Derrick longs to be a professional boxer and represent Jamaica at the Olympics, but the gym that will make him a contender is in the opposing 'garrison' community, which means he has to risk his life in order to follow his dream. Ghett'a Life explores the hypocrisy of Jamaican politics, as power crazy 'dons', manipulate MPs and kill anyone who refuses to obey them. Written by Anonymous

Top draw conscious movie, big up Lennox and the caste!
3 January 2014 | by tom-887-510436See all my reviews

This has got a great great plot, and strikes at some heavy duty issues of life. Postcode wars in UK. And all futile tribalism. Great stuff. Brilliant consciousness.

I don't review films, but I've signed up to IMDb just to review this. It deserves to excel and will do sooooo much more positivity than Kidulthood madness. This makes me more proud of Lennox's Britishness than that he was heavy weight champion of the world. No Joke.

I vote it 10 just to counter the haters. I can't believe that 5/10 vote then saying it's a really good movie. It's at least 7, but maybe 8.5. And it's a must watch cos the ideas in it are so deep and worth communicating to the youth of every generation, and this is an update for this gen.

Also got to say, the caste are fantastic and convincing, for this film to get out there, it's had to far exceed most Hollywood standards, so you really are in for an above average treat in terms of acting quality and plot line. It's a proper drama with brilliant acting.

Peace & love, Tom
