Editorial Reviews

Sometimes 17-year-old Rashad and his pals hang out at the Waffle House, trying to figure out what's next after they graduate. But on Sunday nights, they know what's coming. They'll be at the Cascade roller rink: laying down moves, chillin' with friends...and for a few hours leaving what's outside outside. ATL is a Sunday night fever of laughs, drama and crunk sounds. Video director Chris Robinson makes his feature debut, guiding an ensemble that includes astonishingly natural movie newcomers Tip Harris (aka rapper T.I.), Lauren London and Antwan Andre Patton (aka Big Boi of the duo OutKast).

For those who expected this movie to be T.I.'s

version of "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'" or "8 Mile"...

You will be sadly disappointed!

It never promised to be that.

For those of you who went to the movie theatre

with an open mind, just wanting to be entertained

and to see what ATL was about, then you probably

"got it" and understood that this was not

meant to be "Menace II Society" Part 26!!

It is a refreshing change of pace from all

that ignorance and displays the human side of

the ghetto and the people who live there!

Everybody from the hood is not bustin their

guns in the air, gettin' high, robbin' and

actin' a damn fool!--Puh-leeze!

I think T.I. did well on his first time out

as an actor!...My god, the boy isn't Denzel

or Morgan Freeman!

And this movie wasn't "Glory" by any means!

Some folks need to get a grip on reality!

This movie has a good storyline, all of the cast

did a good job at carrying their characters and

making them believable.

Big Boi was very good as the villain,

young Evan Ross, who played T.I.'s little

brother was also good!

I left the theatre feeling like I got

my money's worth of entertainment value

and couldn't wait to add this DVD to my collection

and most "thinking" people will feel the same!---Buy It!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this film on DVD July 18, 2006
Format:DVD
ATL, the movie which stars rapper T.I. (Tip Harris) arrives in stores on July 18th. First of all, dispel any preconceived notions that you might have about ATL the movie if you haven't seen it. Although some may consider T.I. a "gangster rapper," the movie ATL is a coming of age story that young adults and older adults will be able to relate to.

T.I. stars in the film as Rashad. Rashad is finishing his senior year of high school. He lives with his uncle and his younger brother Antwone, who they call Ant. Their parents died in an automobile accident years prior. On the weekend, all the kids hand out at Cascade, a local roller skating rink where bragging rights mean everything. Rashad soon meets a young woman named New New. She appears to be a regular girl from the neighborhood but everything with New New isn't what it seems. Ant is feeling the pressure of not having the bling bling. Working part time as a janitor with his brother and his uncle just isn't enough money for him. Soon Ant turns to the streets to make easy cash.

Rashad does his best to rescue his brother from a life as a street hustler while trying to balance a new relationship with New New. Rashad's friend Esquire also has a significant storyline in the movie. Esquire doesn't attend the same high school as the rest of the crew, he attends a school in a nice neighborhood and has dreams of attending an Ivy League college--if he can get the letter of reference that he needs.

ATL is a really great movie. The soundtrack is very good also. The film is also packed with cameos from Atlanta hip-hop stars. Evon Ross and T.I. prove that they are excellent up and coming actors in this coming of age drama.

The ATL DVD includes the music video for the T.I. song "What You Know" among other special features.

5.0 out of 5 stars "ATL" - ain't what I thought it would be May 19, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I came across this movie on cable recently and I was surprized - I really enjoyed it. I remember this movie came out last year about the same time as "Akeelah and the Bee" - another excellent film - but based on what I saw on the commercials for it, I said, "Oh please, not ANOTHER hood movie with black kids shooting each other up" and passed on it. I went to see "Akeelah" instead because it was being promoted as a movie with positive black characters, which we need more of. I enjoyed it but now after seeing "ATL", I realized seeing either one of those movies would have been a wise choice. "ATL" was definitely marketed the wrong way and fooled a lot of people, like it did me.

Produced by Will Smith's production company, Overbrook Entertainment and based a story written by Antwone Fisher (who was himself the subject of a movie directed by Denzel Washington a few years back), "ATL" is far from being your typical black film about coming of age in the hood. It does show some instances of drug dealing and violence, but very few, and that is not the central focus of the story anyway. This is an urban tale with a message that is powerful - striving and working hard to achieve the better things in life in an honest fashion, and having some fun along the way. That includes Sunday nights at the Cascade - a popular roller rink on the southside of Atlanta, where all of the kids love to hang out and have a good time. The focal point of "ATL" is on the lives and the camaraderie of four friends who ponder their futures as they approach graduation.

Because I am not really into today's rap music, I was not too familiar with T.I., other than from his song that was a big hit last year, "What You Know".
