The Breaks
8 January 2016 | by michaelhavertongSee all my reviews

The only reason I give 9/10 is because there is no series or 2nd half follow up. hard to put such greatness in the time slot. like the plot, like the actors/actresses. Love the Music. The acting was very well done and believable. the movie was very well put together and make it a series. A positive series. maybe even a lesson to learn type of series. the streets sell themselves but it's time movies play a role in upbringing. Hip hop is garbage now a day. let's go back to real music, less cursing and more knowledge and positive. Self destruction. Remember that hit? BRING THIS BACK...don't keep it quiet. just make sure not to air while Power is on. I will be torn.
