Standard hoodie movie, with a stupid twist
30 September 2017 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

This could have been acceptable if it would have been marketed as such. But no, they went and made a trailer that looked like a sci-fi and had the audacity to quote "Chronicle meets Iron Man" in it. Seriously?

Take the standard good boy caught in a bad situation with a mobster and waste two thirds of the movie with it. Then end it with a few scenes where he uses an impossible device that he created because he is black, smart and his teacher helped him. That's the whole film. Black people, drugs, poor neighborhoods and abused youngsters fill up the rest.

So don't listen to the hype. It's consciously generated to make you believe this is something that it's not. And putting aside the *sleight* I was talking about above, it's just a sub-average movie.
