Not bad for a small budget film,
This review is from: The City is Mine (DVD)
I checked this one out on a friend's recommendation. At first, I was a little worried as the flick carried a pretty small budget(unlike a lot of my collegues, I'm not a large fan of indie movies), but those worries quickly evaporated in the first 20 minutes.
- Cool story
- Well written
- Well acted
Those were the main reasons I stuck with it, and I am glad I did. It is not the first time a street story like this has been told, nor will it be the last, but this one was told with a certain grit and it felt more "real" than some of the contrived Hollywood trash floating around in movieland. I'm not gonna give away any of the plot(check out a synopsis for that), but I can say it moves pretty well and hopefully jumpstarts the career of some of the actors in it(my fav are the main character and the corrupt cop). Like it or not, these guys kept it 100.
