I enjoyed this movie. I thought it was well written. It is a time capsule of it's era. Tupac would've been a better selection for the lead character, but I think had passed away by this point.

I love Arlen's work and I was interested in seeing his debut film, so I figured I'd buy it. Not only was it kind of sardonic and comedic when it wasn't supposed to be, this story had so many holes in it. It was entertaining to watch, but seriously, this could have been way better. The director, Greg Morgan, edited this on his laptop computer, for God's sake. I understand low-budget, but this was ultra-low-budget -- and that is saying something seeing that I watch a lot of low-budget, indie films.

As I stated before, predictable storyline, interesting ending. Sometimes you have to enjoy the B films because you get performances like the one Escarpeta gave in this. It was so great to watch him calmly take on such a challenging role of Reggie (the story's villain). If you are a fan of hood movies, then this will more than likely be a new one to pick.

You would be better off trying to find this on Netflix or if you can buy it from a third-party seller like I did, by all means do so. It is a B-film to watch either when you're bored or just need to blow time.

I enjoyed this movie very much. The story was very interesting and kept you involved until the end. All of the actors in this movie did an excellent job. Their characters were beleivable and interesting. You are able to understand their backgrounds very quickly. A well told story. I highly recommend this movie. I'm very happy to have this dvd in my collection.

Talk about some drama; This is it; When this local young thug gets killed at the local community center after shooting some hoops with his "homies", they insist that it is the white man that he had beef with previously on the court; Thus begins a "kangaroo court" with a lawyer who happens to be there as well as the people who try to piece together what happens; As time goes on and the truth comes to light, time begins to run out for all concerned; Very good drama; will keep you interested and riveted to the end;
