Editorial Reviews

An epic tale about a supremely intelligent young African-American male who rises from the ferocious and oppressive streets of North Philadelphia to become a shining star in the lucrative world of high finance at Wall Street's most prestigious firm. However, he soon finds that the white-collar world is filled with crime and death just like the drug-filled hood he left behind. His only chance for survival is to fully integrate a mysterious gift from a slain childhood friend into the fabric of his character.

Customer Reviews

It was very well done, acting was magnificent, the plot original, and the story very touching.

Solid performances from the actors, especially veteran actress Irma Hall, rising star Sean Riggs, and Kirk "Sticky Fingaz" Jones.
Melody Forrester
This film creatively covers all the bases: Action-check, intrigue-check (very thought-provoking), clash of cultures-another check.

Excellent - MUST SEE FILM! Changing The Game is hands down one of my favorite independent films of all time. It is an intelligent, moving, timely, brilliantly told story filled with depth of emotion, strong characters and dialogue, classic literary references, superb acting by a diverse and well chosen cast, with a surprise ending Hitchcock himself would applaud. While the film takes place in an Urban setting, this is NOT your typical "Urban Drama". It has heart, honesty and shows that Black Men in the inner city can be victors in any circumstance as opposed to victims of their circumstances. The characters are so well scripted and acted, as a viewer, you are engaged and involved in each of their story lines. They make you laugh, cry, cheer and they make you care about their fate or outcome. The production, props, set design, wardrobe and special effects make you forget this is a small budget film shot in Philadelphia in just 21 days. This film by Director and Writer Rel Dowdell, fills a void in modern Black Cinema, by artfully and masterfully maintaining a balance of great story telling, with believable characters and multiple themes which are thought provoking without being "preachy". Sean Riggs, Dennis L.A. White, Irma P. Hall, Nicoye Banks, Kirk "Sticky Fingaz" Jones, Tony Todd, Brandon Ruckdashel and the rest of the cast, do a phenomenal job telling a great story. This is a film you will definitely want to see multiple times.

I tried to give this 5 stars but Amazon wont let me...
Rel Dowdell did an amazing job showing the harsh reality of the streets and its similarities to the harsh reality of corporate America. Lies, deceit, lust, backstabbing and murder are not only found in the streets - its found in corporate boardrooms all over the world. Irma P. Hall's character moved me! I believe that when you give your children the right foundation, they will stay on the right path. Even if they go off path for a moment, they will find their way back.

The acting appeared stilted. The best scene was with the dying grandmother. The ending sent an interesting message about today's ethical and moral coding via the church.

Changing the Game is a unique spin on the "good vs. evil," "rise from the bottom" average story. Writer/director Rel Dowdell weaves a spiritual element and unexpected twist ending into this cautionary tale that definitely is a game changer, pun intended, in relation to the standard "boy from rough neighborhood makes good" film one might be used to seeing. The film has a solid cast featuring veteran actors Irma P. Hall, Tony Todd and Suzzanne Douglas, rapper/actor Kirk "Sticky Fingaz" Jones, and a solid performance from newcomer and lead actor Sean Riggs.

This film is a very interesting and entertaining variation on the relationship between The Wire’s Stringer Bell and Avon
Barksdale, two lifelong friends whose different views on crime and money proved to be their undoing. Changing the
Game kicks off as a Boyz N The Hood-styled urban film and slowly shifts into a surprisingly rich adult drama filled
with a healthy dose of crime, friendship and high finance. The performances are all very good which include Sean
Riggs, Irma P. Hall, Tony Todd. Dennis White, and Sticky Fingaz. This film creatively covers all the bases: Action-check, intrigue-check (very thought-provoking), clash of cultures-another check. Very well done.

This film should be seen by all those looking for a creatively written and well developed plot. This film has a few surprises in store for the viewers. Many times I predicted one course of action and the film went in another direction. BRAVO. Finally, an unpredictable plot. Sean Riggs provides a convincing performance of the main character from the teen through adult years. Irma P. Hall performs a hospital scene that will blow your mind! This is not your typical independent film. I was pleasantly surprised by this film. I have ordered copies for my nephews and cousins.
