Movie Reviews

A Father trying to erase his past for his son's future
The Dude | EH CT | 02/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I picked this up in the local movie store for $9.99. Being a fan of Bing Rhames and remembering Jim Brown's part in Mars Attacks way back when I thought I would give it a try. Ving Rhames wrote the story keep this in mind. The Story is literally about James (Ving Rhames) and his mistakes which lead him to prison leaving behind his son 12 years old and his wife. Inside James is shown off as an animal to local inmates. He and chosen inmates have brauls for money. And they end with James killing them with sick smiles of delight.. Any way James meets another local inamte after a recent scuffle, Jim Brown.... Jim plays a Revolutionist who believes in this speech which a slave holder Lynch gave to other slave holders in order of keeping their slaves orginazed and in order. Turn the black against the black. Light skin , against dark skin, old vs young, women vs men. etc. So he trys to explain to James that this is because of this slaveholder that they (the black people) have been trapped in fighting amongst themselves for all of these generations. Jim Brown is in hopes of rehibilitating James for a new cleaner life on the outside..

James makes it on the outside and soon sees that he and his son are not connecting. His son is the same person he used to be, but he does not want to be that same person, nor does he want his son following in his footsteps. From then on it is a battle of who will convince the other to change their style of living..

I will not spoil anything in fact have left out a lot of stuff because it is that good that you have to watch.."
