Great Story and Very Unique Characters
19 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is an awesome film. It really appealed to me since the characters were not your normal Hollywood stereotyped roles. Teyonah Parris' role as Bellissima was interesting to watch. She was beautiful, raw, and had a unique sense of style that represents the current times. Brian White was handsome and presented a story that many athletes and leaders in urban communities can identify with. In real life many African American males in their communities mentor youth however, this is rarely shown in traditional films. I was happy to see his character contribute to a city like Compton. Media often portrays Compton as being a violent city and fails to acknowledge the fact that many professional athletes, musicians, and artists have come from Compton, California. I am tremendously excited that someone has taken on the responsibility to show Compton in a positive light. Having lived in Compton I have seen some great educators dedicate their time and efforts to support the youth in this community. The film is bigger than Compton but the setting was a very important element in this work. I was also pleasantly surprised with Macy Gray's performance as Helen. I often imagine Macy Gray as a party person. It was unexpected to see her play a serious role. Even though her role was serious her flair and personality still showed through in her mannerisms. I cant wait to see more films with her in them. Another surprising character was David McCain played by Leon. Leon usually plays a protagonist but this time he was the total opposite. The fact that he could make his character's actions feel so believable show his great range in acting. I loved that this film displayed all of humanity's emotions and that each scene is well crafted. The cinematography and editing are perfection. I can't wait to see this film on the big screen or Netfilx.
