"Capitalizing on the brutality, violence, and abuse of the dog fighting world for financial gain is ghastly. Selling this material supports and perpetuates this horrible industry and sends the wrong message about our society. Until Amazon stops distributing this and other dog and cockfighting materials, I cannot in good conscience give them my business, and I will urge friends and family to do the same."
An excellent movie with an grade-Z title

"One element of this movie is the sad spectacle of vicious dogs fighting in a pit while people gamble on the outcome, hence the title -- but it can also refer to the people themselves, living in a world of guns and crime, fighting for their lives. It's no place for an inexperienced teenager like Donte (Daniel Outlaw) but he finds himself caught up in it when his older brother, a soldier for a gang boss named Big Daddy, is killed in a gun battle. Donte swears revenge, but when the time comes he finds himself unprepared to carry out the act, almost resulting in his own death. So he begins to hang out with one of his late brother's associates, Jojo (Paris Campbell), who can be deceptively easygoing one moment and a cold-blooded killer the next. Since killing is the main duty Jojo performs while working for Big Daddy, Donte tags along in the hope of acquiring this skill so that he can apply it against the man responsible for his brother's death. In the process he comes dangerously close to losing his soul, and becoming just another "dawg" struggling to survive in the pits.

This is a very fine movie in all respects. There are good performances from the entire cast, an intelligent script, and highly-capable direction from the Crook brothers. There are bursts of violence, but it is realistic and non-operatic (no slow-motion, quick cuts, etc.). Everyone involved clearly wanted to use the low budget to make a thoughtful, engaging film rather than a simple exploitation flick, and they succeeded. The final scenes are tense and suspenseful. I found the entire movie to be a very satisfying viewing experience that went well beyond my expectations."

"This movie is why we see very few black actors that win oscars. Compare this movie to those done by Samuel L Jackson, Morgan Freeman, and Denzel Washington. These movies might be hits to the ghetto fabulous, but real entertainment they are far from being. It's just another excuse to show young black men what people portray them as being and doing, and in this movie, it's gang bangers and drug dealers."
