Movie Reviews

Review
CK | Columbus, OH USA | 09/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I personally know Carl Upchurch's family. While the movie shows his transformation to an outspoken leader against violence, a life he once lived. Carl had his hand in the production of this movie so that it mirrored his experiences brilliantly.

For a better experience, see his autobiography [...] It does an even better job of detailing the most influential parts of Carl's life."
Omar is over looked again
J. Martin | Washington, DC | 08/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Omar is great in this movie but few people now about it. This is great and continues to be over looked. He some how even gets lost in the cast of 'House'. One black man in a group of white folks. How is it possible for him to be un-noticed? Omar is a true talent and I wish him the best."
