Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary is extremely important. It will be absolutely shocking to some to see what did and does go on with the police. This documentary tells how the police supplied Mr. Davis (a teenager at the time) with drugs to sell in the Black community and when he decided he didn't want to do it anymore they used their media power to portray him as a savage killer. The cops weren't too happy when Mr. Davis cut off their cashflow. He outsmarted hundreds of officers, which really isn't that hard if you think about it, and got away with his life, which definitely wasn't an easy task. But just like they did many others (Geronimo etc.) they found a way to pin a murder on him anyway. This is definitely a keeper and should be shared with everyone you care about."

"This movie was a good buy. I really enjoyed the stories that friends of Rayful shared. I thought this was a good production because it painted a picture of how everything went down. Compared to other documentaries, this was a good balance of talking and the storyline. The fact that all the major scenes were recreated was good. I would recommend anyone who loves watching street hustler movies buy this. Only thing is that the costumes worn by actors didn't reflect the times.. But as far as story it was good. You can see how real it was since they took shots in Georgetown and at Phillip, and Florida Ave Grill. If you know DC u will be able to relate."
