This was/is a great movie for all people. Common really came through as a strong character that was very believable. The boy (Rainey) showed range and was a bit too quick of a study, which was/is understandable due to time constraints. Basically was a movie about the loss of innocence rather than coming of age. Great for teen boys and all adults The movie was engaging from start to finish. I'll definitely look to buy this one once it comes out on video!

Very well done film with a surprising number of well name stars. Good acting and writing. Pretty intense at times, smooth pace. I wish Common appeared in more films; he really is a good actor.

Impressive For First-Time Director

The story had amazing performances and the story had a lot of potential, though it was uneven at times. But definitely worth seeing, especially if you're an African-American man who wants to see a movie about the dangers of choosing a life of crime.
