ALISFANATIC | USA | 08/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Alison Lohman rocks in this movie. She is a great actress , and really makes you feel scared for her. I saw her first in White Oleander , and watch everything she is in. If you love Alison Lohman like I do , watch this movie."

"Great Movie! reminded me of Training Day. Realistic depictions of todays world, real life.Alison Lohman was believable as the young girl, and Jonathan Avildsen as "Cole", gives an eye opening performance.Johnny Green convincingly portrayed the conflict between the two worlds he lived in. I recommended it to several freinds."
Powerful , gritty, an L.A. MEAN STREETS

"This film reminded me of Mean Streets , the way it was shot , and acted , except in Los Angeles. The acting was real also. Cool film."
Good flick -- better than your avg crap @ theaters today..

"With that, I say rent/buy Whiteboy if your are into alot of varied subject matter of today, portrayed by well trained up-and-coming actors. Sure, it's low-budget (hell Jan-Michael Vincent is in it!) so it's not Lord of the Rings or anything but it does portray gritty street and home life in LA and generally, modern sububia. There is a latino edge and race cards are played all over the film but it blows something like the commercially lauded "American beauty" away. Okay so this won't win an Oscar, but that's exactly why I rent or buy a film -- because some academy says it's outstanding. I like realistic movies and this is one. Kinda in the vein of another Ferrar flick, Bad Lieutenant. Gritty. Realistic. Multiple plotlines intertwined. This is what I like in a film so I do recommend it."
