Amazing Cast, Amazing Story- If "The Wire" series and "8 Mile" movie had a baby
Honestly, I did not know what to expect from this movie. However, I am a huge fan of Tristan "Mack" Wilds and I saw him in an interview talking about the story. He was explaining how it's about the hip hop/rap subculture right before it blew up in the early 1990's and became one of music's most appreciated/listened to genres. It is directed by Seith Mann, who directed a few episodes of "The Wire". Wasn't hard to figure out considering three of the actor's from this movie, Tristan "Mack" Wilds, Wood Harris, and Clifford "Method Man" Smith, all had significant roles on the hit classic HBO TV series. Seith Mann has also directed episodes from other classic TV shows such as "Sons of Anarchy", "Friday Night Lights", "Entourage", "The Walking Dead", "Grey's Anatomy", and many more. Everyone involved was so passionate and really wanted to share an accurate and authentic depiction of the uprising of the hip hop/rap music subculture in NYC in the early 1990's, right before it became mainstream. Mack's character, "DeeVee", is like a mix of himself and his two most famous TV character's he has played. "DeeVee" is like a mix between "Michael Lee", from "The Wire", "Dixon Wilson", from "90210", and himself. I was pumped to see Mack acting again because I know he wanted to focus on his music and put acting on hold. Well, looks like he got the best of both worlds. He is a truly gifted actor, musician, performer, entertainer, and is starting to get the recognition he deserves! In my opinion, "The Breaks" is like a mix between "The Wire" series and the movie "8 Mile". However, I think the story is far from over. The lead actors were cast perfectly and I love how the movie showed each character's perception on the hip hop/rap subculture during the early 1990's in NYC and how it influenced their everyday lives, resulting in different approaches on how to chase their dreams. Although they all had different perspectives and dreams, they still all shared the same passion; hip hop/rap music. I honestly think it has the potential to be one of the best TV shows to be shown on television. Ever. Please continue making this a TV series and consider this the pilot episode (most pilots are longer than the typical length of the show anyway).
