[knocking over the king]
Wanna play again? Chance to get those cigarettes back.
I'm scared, man. I don't got too many friends on the outside. Not any more.
Just keep your eye on the end game. Everything'll fall into place.
I'm gonna miss you chess man.
Listen to me, Eugene. Every day you out there, you out there for me, and every other brother in here. 'Cuz I'm never gonna be out there again.

"Life of a King" is a good movie with a great story, good actors and an excellent Cuba Gooding Jr. as main character. It's all about morals, ethics and the meaning of life and constantly reminds us that we are responsible for our own actions.
Sure we've seen the same kind of movie before. "Dangerous Minds" for example to name just one. However, it does not get old and keeps you entertained the whole time. There was not one single boring moment. The chess "theme" I really liked. For once it's not football! And even as an experienced chess-player myself I can say that everything is totally legit and realistic.
Nothing more to say. Watch it.
