User Reviews

A fun ride that captures the essence of Baltimore
1 February 2020 | by ndewildSee all my reviews

Not a great film, but a good film. It has some really good ideas and a strong message that will speak to anyone who has grown up in the inner city.

I wish there had been more dirt bike driving and stunts, there is a very good scene that shows off some great action but because it is earlier on the movie slows down after that scene. If it had kept the pace of the action scene this film would of been the best action film of the year.
