Then I realized the movie's point is that someone like this nerdy Harvard boy might be transformed in a fairly short time into a bloodthirsty gang fighter. The message is that violence is hard-wired into men, if only the connection is made.

A great film because of it's realism and the ability to show viewers a world that exists even today, but not everyone knows about.

The movie, though, is nonsense. At its most credible, the story evokes fond memories of the adult drug narcs hiding among American high schoolers on ''21 Jump Street."

Wood is compelling, but Charlie Hunnam ("Nicholas Nickleby") is the one to watch.

Empire

By Chris Hewitt
A surprisingly rose-tinted look at a subculture that really should have been stamped out some time ago.

This is "Fight Club" without the irony or the metaphysical gaming.
