Editorial Reviews

Four friends who grew up together on the mean streets of Harlem will do whatever it takes -- from armed robberies to elaborate con games -- to get what they want. But for how long? One slumlord is determined to take over the neighborhood, and he's not about to let some kids get in his way. The crew's only hope to survive -- a scam that's more twisted and dangerous than anything they've pulled off yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than what it seems! February 12, 2010
By Hector
Format:DVD
This film impressed me! I thought this would be just another NYC crime flick but they tackle some real issues that New Yorkers are experiencing in several of the newly gentrified neighborhoods. This movie also taught me some stuff I didnt know about New York City's first settlers (hint: it was not the dutch). Bryce Wilson and Mel Jackson are great on the screen. I would give 5 stars except for a couple scenes that are a little too corny, other wise a great flick!

It was a shame,this could have had some potential,quite a bit of big names that semeed to fade,-not shine from Mel Jackson to Bryce Wilson-who are already great actors,but bad parts.Also, with all due respect,a veteran actor, Hawthorne James-Big Red from the Five Heartbeats,Color Purple, and so many notable movies and shows, who plays Uncle Bo in here. This man, woo-is cut from a different cloth,excellent actor. You give him a great part, he feels it and does it justice.They gave him a poor part in here though,too.The co-stars Tariq Alexander, Taurean Blacque,John Crann,and Lloyd DeLeon had an opportunity but, did not own up to the characters.They could have been as good.This movie was so terrible I want to throw it back as far as I can to where it came from. The acting was horrible and music as well, it was unsuspecting coming from a movie with a music producer like Bryce Wilson who could have helped them out with the soundtrack,very cheap!The story line could have came together better, very sketchy,all over the place.I can't say don't get it,cause the industry can be a tripp,all actors even the great ones have in-between or slow periods too, they gotta eat!

2.0 out of 5 stars DON'T HATE THE PLAYERS, HATE THE GAME June 25, 2012
Format:DVD
A group of Harlem con artists rob rich people and live by the Three Musketeers' motto. After amassing millions and living in a low end rental, they decide they need to pull one more big job before retirement. One gang member gets shot and put in a wheel chair. While in prison he gives us the "great white conspiracy" speech to give a substandard movie some mock substance. Somehow I don't see the Feds controlling interest rates as targeting blacks, but maybe that is just me.

At this point the movie turns from a light con artist film to a heavy film about the Moors, the original owners/ settlers of NYC, and how the white man keeps the black man down. The movie gets bogged down with this theme and doesn't integrate it into the film as well as other films have done. Coupled with bad acting and poorly written dialouge, this production lost my interest after the wheel chair speech. For those who believe in the white vs. black conspiracy ideas, they might find an interest in this film in spite of its short comings.

N-word, F-bomb, sex, no nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Stick up Kids January 24, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a good movie, it had real substance and historical value. I did the research on Manhatten and found it to be on point. while their method may not have been the best approch (Robin Hoodist) the point of making conrtibutions to our community and to others were clear. We have to both invest in our own and become knowledgable about vision. Vision is not what you see but how you see it, it is not want you see but seeing what it can become.

2.0 out of 5 stars A ridiculous story that was horribly acted September 16, 2010
Format:DVD
..I'm going to keep this short and sweet. This is a horribly written story about a group of con artist / thieves called the 'Stick up Kids'. The script throws every b movie cliche at you, and the bulk of the actors and actresses involved really seem like they are just phoning it in. The lead male actor has horrible timing and can't deliver a line to save his life. The lighting sound and editing where pretty good for a low budget movie...but it's just not enough.
I can understand what the other reviewers are saying when they mention that its a black cast..and that at least they get a chance to shine..but the message in this movie is the not a good one. The theme of the story is that if you are a thief a lier and a con man who breaks the law on a daily basis, and is a general detriment to society..it's okay if as long as you give back to the community. This is the same ridiculous message in allot of today's modern rap music. There is a culture of respect for criminality in the African American community that should be eliminated, not celebrated. This movie is not only not a good movie....it sends a horrible message. If African American actors and actresses get a chance to create something they owe it to their community to be socially responsible with the message they are sending....or don't try to send a message at all..just make a good movie

..I threw this DVD out after one viewing....save your money

This is probably THE WORST movie I have ever seen. I can get with the concepts of making the most of one's life, black-owned business/neighborhoods, etc. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you listen my people????
The laws were created to protect them, NOT you! Legal doesn't mean good or right! Illegal doesn't mean bad or wrong! Listen my people to the words said in this movie.
