Movie Reviews

Only a couple mentionables are better than this... Good movi
Donald Quintana | Pomona, CA USA | 10/28/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you draw your ideas about urban life from Hollywood, you are bound to be mislead by the poor portrayal of barrio culture and the continued raping of Hip Hop imagery. It seems that this time they get it right! At its weekest points, the movie delivers occasions of weaker acting and continuity errors, but what the movie excels at is its sincerity, truth, and boldness.

The movie also propels us through these moments to realizations of our own self. Who are we honestly beyond our influences? Who's to blame for our problems and our community's problems? How do we cope?

Bullets and serial murders launch warring neighborhoods to battle as a crumbling police department is caught in the middle. Charged by excellent cinematography, graphic editing, amazing music, and the powerhouse acting of Edward James Olmos and Tom Sizemore, BUY this movie and transport yourself to the wonderful Los Angeles cityscapes where, in a flash and a bullet wound later, you'll discover the chaotic underbelly that keeps justice in order in the city.

NOTABLES: Appearances by Edward James Olmos, Noel Gugliemi, Tom Sizemore, Hector Atreyu Ruiz, Cypress Hill, Ivonne Coll, "Diamond" Dallas Page, Emilio Rivera, Adam Rodriguez, Nick Gonzalez, Bodie Olmos, and more..."
