Movie Reviews

RED HOOK all the way man!
Daniel L. Apgar | Stockton, NJ United States | 07/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"yo yo, dis movie rocks big time. Dennis is the man!
"where did you get these beans?" great scene!
It doesn't get any more real than this! It shows the struggle that
so many families living in the projects go through. and how violence really doesn't solve your problems!
"yo, that is my GIRL" " I can get 30 guns, 10 for each of us!"
saab 9000 does 150 in first gear! wow!

don't miss this movie! it's one for the ages. Matty Rich rocks!"
Life in the projects ain't no game, kid

"This is the movie that started it all for me. As a suburban white kid in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, I could still relate to these characters and this setting. From the opening moments of a busted up appartment (at the hands of 'Ray', the drunk-up pops) I was 'hooked on Redhook'. I have now seen it 13 times--more than any other movie. Matty Rich directed, wrote--done everything in this movie!
But you know? The show belongs to Dennis (Larry Gillard, Jr.) and Ray (George T. Odom--watch for him as the bartender in "The Hurricane"). When Ray's talkin' to the mirror... i'm feelin it.
I liked this movie so much, me and my boy was gonna do a remake of it, but it never happened... maybe one day...
Highlights of the movie include the scene where Dennis and Ray chat about life, forgotten dreams, and gettin OUT... also watch for the love scene with Sherley (which is sure to steam up your goggles) and the dance sequence where Dennis shows his moves with those crazy nut-caeshe friends of his.
You can't step to this movie. Now turn the lights down low, the volume full blast, and hit that owl like it was a party horn."

"Matty Rich and the entire cast do a fine job here. Way better than Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It--and with a lot more to say.

I have only one question: Why hasn't Matty Rich made more films?"
George T. 0dom is George T. Riffic!!!
Smegma Cheese | l got a hundred guns, a hundred clips 'coz l'm fro | 12/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"George T. proves he can play gritty, tough street characters the way he portrayed Long Dong Silver in the biopic ''Silver Lining''. l found out that in the end of the movie when he is running from the drug dealers with Carl Lewis-like speed, that is was him and not a stunt double. Just like that was him and not a double in ''Silver Lining''. Just another example of George having not only style, but substance. You might say he has substantial substance.

What a man, what a man, what a might good man!"
