There is always some well meaning male relative and or friend that want to bring our young boys up to speed and mean well because yes, life is unique for them to say the very least and they got to know what they are going to face as time moves on. but sometimes I feel a child should stay a child as long as he or she can without facing the harsh realities life has to offer. In this movie, it's no different. Common plays an ex con named Vincent just outta prison who takes his young nephew to school but decides at the last minute to take him along with him while he goes around town handling business.Young fella gets to see a lot more of life than he would have seen in school on a given day. At the base of the uncle's plan is trying to open a crab bar that he can work with and stay on the straight and narrow. In order to get what he needs to make that dream come through, he has to once again embrace the life he left behind in the form of Dennis Haysbert and Danny Glover, as well as his old homie, Charles S.Dutton. In the meantime, young nephew is wondering about his mother who they won't tell him about but let him know that she is away in N.C. handling some "things". As the story unfolds, you kind of wish that young homie went to school instead of hanging with unc. no lie.also,if your going to take your nephew or young family member around and show him things, be sure to tell the "whole dang story" like, the real deal on his mother,your part in that, what you did to make that happen instead of covering it up. just IMHO. good flick.

Acting was sensational with stellar performances by Common, Glover, Haysbert, and Dutton. In addition, you have the legendary Lonette McKee. Michael Rainey Jr. was brilliant and has a very long future. The plot however did not make sense. I'm surprised that with the careers of such leading men like Glover, Haysbert, and Dutton that they would settle and participant in such a negative movie, I respect the determination of Common's character, but his drive was curtailed by going back to his old ways. It is sad to think that some impressionable black boy will be influenced by the grim nature of this story. Luv is a collection of astounding instruments brilliantly playing a hallow and annoying tune.

I love those persons who acted in the movie. I have seen them in other movies.
I just did not like the plot of the movie. The movie moved along very well. It does all of the development that one expects a movie should do: Introduction, situations, development of situations, conclusion with resolutions to the situations presented. I think that this was a terrible ordeal to put a child through. No child should have to experience the kinds of dramatic situations during his impressionable year.

LUV is a movie about learning that people you look up to as being prefect are not always that/ And Woody learned that the hard way by spending a day with his uncle Vincent. He also learned that beinga MAN is not as easy and as fun as he (Woody) thought it would be.

LUV is a story of an ex con Vincent portray by "Common" who is trying to get his life together. Common plays his role superbly, unfortunately the character development falls short and leaves the viewer wondering how did this all happen. It's like they've just told us the end of the story when in fact if they would've told us the whole story we could have appreciated the movie more. The movie could have easily been two hours and much more enjoyable. However, the summary of Vincent, Woody, Mr Fish' lives is told in a powerful climatic film. The relationship between Vincent and Woody is palpable. Overall a good movie, starts a bit slow but is interesting.

There was really not enough background for you to understand what the whole purpose of the movie was about. I can watch mindless movies but this just takes the cake with this one. Even the acting was a bit slow and from the calaber of actors I thought it would at least hold it's own. I was wrong.
