Steel City is worth it..

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Steel City is the story of a dysfunctional family working through the crisis of the father being jailed. The mother isn't present, although members of the extended family (uncles, etc.) play prominent roles.
In my humble opinion, the only reason this movie doesn't have a higher rating is that none of the characters are particularly sympathetic; there isn't a single one of them that you would invite over to your house. In fact, you might be best advised to call 911 the instant any of these characters showed up in your neighborhood.
That aside, the movie is enjoyable for the storyline, good acting, and good production values. The secret mentioned in the plot outline isn't such a big secret, don't look for a twist ending or suspense.
Watch it when you can't find what you were looking for and have to settle for what's left in the rental store. It makes a pleasant evening of movie watching without being great."
Great "real" family movie

"If you are like many who don't have a Ward and June Cleaver type family, this is one good movie about a fathers love for his son and the regret he feels at having "pissed away" his child raising years. Good movie, really good.....and I hate dramas."
