3.0 out of 5 stars Everyday Deception September 5, 2011
By Leelee
Format:DVD
The cover of this DVD is quite deceiving. This is not a love story between a young black man and black woman. It is about a middle aged black man who is living a lie. He conceals the fact that he is the father of a young woman that frequents his store. His business is also slowing slipping out his hands due to his financial distress. A young Muslim brother, played by the enticing Omari Hardwick decides he wants to give the older man's business some financial support. As soon as Hardwick enters the screen you begin to sense that he is too good to be true. His motives become clear as he strong arms the shopkeeper and deceives his daughter into thinking he is upstanding. I enjoyed the movie but I am longing for a film that expresses the pure love between a black man and a black woman. One that tackles the ups and downs involved in two people deciding to take a journey together. It has been way too long since Love Jones was released.

This movie was great, all the actors were good ESPECIALLY SONNY, he played his role so well, I was totally convinced that he really talked like that. The story line is something that actually happens in Oakland and everywhere. Very Good movie, I have recommended this movie to all of my Friends.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a good movie February 12, 2012
Format:DVD
This is a very good movie. Judgiing by the cover I also thought it was going to be a love story but I was wrong. Despite that this movie was awesome, it kept me entertained and interested from the beginning to the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good acting and powerful performances, but...... July 25, 2011
Format:DVD
This is the story of a ghetto shopowner who dotes on a young lady in the neighborhood. They are bewithched by a pseudo minister of the Nation of Islam who pretends to want a business partnership but really wants to use it as a drug front.

The acting is great and the performances are powerful (espcially Henry Brown as Moses, the shopkeeper with integrity and the actor who plays "Sonny," his mentally challlenged assistant), but the tale itself is hokey and you can pretty much tell what will happen early on in the movie. The fake NOI leader comes in spouting stale and cliched Black Power rhetoric that was played out since the 60s. It is plausible that the naive young girl could be bamboozled by this handsome slickster, but how a man as worldly as Moses could fall for this baloney and "tricknollogy" (as the real NOI would put it) is beyond credibility. Early on, the phoney preacher lays down $60,000 without (apparent) strings attached to Moses for his share in the business. Come on! Ray Charles could see that there is something fishy in Denmark (or in this case, Oakland), here. Once again, the Moses character appears to be too smart to give this bogus black leader the time of day!

After this implausability, the rest of the film becomes hopelessly predictable and you can fill in the dots before each scene.

That aside, it's okay for leave your brains at the door entertainment on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Even though it's not a high budget movie,the story-line was good and the actors were pretty decent.It's worth watching and it really is a story about a everyday black man...

DVD was okay but the story line was sort of weak. The meaning of the movie was decent but to be honest it could use some improvements. Each to their own I guess. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Ending seemed to be missing
Basically, the movie was alright. It tells the importance of being careful of those you place in your life. The ending of the story does fall short of my expectations.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's alright, but I have seen Omari in better movies.
The movie was not as good as I thought it was. It was slow throughout the whole movie and didnt seem to take off, but came to somewhat exciting abrupt end.
