Movie Reviews

A lesson, for the community, that can not be repeated too of
Anthony J. Thomas | Bakersfield, Ca USA | 10/10/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It is true that this is an of-told tale regarding the evils of life in the "hood", but, it is another interesting interpretation of the ghetto plite. This one is based on the Willie Lynch papers that gave slave owners a program for controlling slaves that many people believe is the foundatiion for the self hatred and destruction that exists today in those communities. It is also about the relationship between fathers and sons, literal and figurative, that perpetuate self destruction. The acting is impeccable, especially Terrance Howard as the adult son, a man-child still searching for his father's love and approval. Despite the previous review, this is a very worthwhile movie."
Excellent point of view
Hilton O. Wallace | 04/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I live in the inner city, and am sometimes uncomfortable with what I see our youths values has become. Common curiosities, values, graciousness and morals seem to be a thing of the past. Family values are non existent, family is non existent, children are left to raise themselves, and their lessons on life values have now become street smarts. This movie "Animal" reaches all the impurities that we see in today's society. Hopefully one day the cycle will break."
