"While not in the same range as "Boys in the Hood" or "Menace to Society", a movie that is down to Earth. It featured two things that most movies of this design do not. 1) filmed somewhere other than the standard inner cities that we hear about. It was done in Houston, Texas. 2) The cast of unknowns do a great job of acting. I would rather see movies like this than big budget movies with no plot, overrated directors and booming soundtrack (Belly-anybody?)."

"Why is this movie that expensive when you can rent it at your local video store for like 2 dollars? This is really ridiculous and I hope they are not serious. Anyway, I seen this movie and it is hilarious but I don't think that it was done purposely. The acting is so bad that you can't help buy fall out laughing. In one scene, they were supposed to be stomping on some guy on the ground but the only problem was that their foot never landed on the person. I highly recommend this if you are in the mood for a good comedy."

"I think this movie really tells you what happens when realaity hits you in the face. It's about real things that happen in real life. And it teaches a good lesson not just to young people trying to make it in life but it teaches everyone."

"I'm a fan of lower budget, black/latino urban independent movies. York Entertainment and Maverick put out some good movies and some not so good movies. This is one of York Entertainment's good movies. I rented this through NetFlix, and some day I will buy this movie.
This movie had a good story according to my low-maintanance standards. Lots of family issues. Son hates his mother's boyfriend. Boyfriend beats the mother, the little boy, and threatens to beat the older son. Mother's boyfriend was an alcoholic and had a bad temper. Two crooked cops were running around a little and they had bad attitudes. The son, James, worked at a store where him and an Asian girl had a secret relationship. James hung with with some bad friends, and you can see where those bad friends got him in the end of the movie.
This is definitely a good movie that takes place in the streets of Houston, Texas. The movie starts off with a song by Willie D, formerly of the Geto Boys. They also have a reference or two of DJ Screw, one of the most highly respectable DJ's throughout Texas. I'd recommend the movie to people who are not picky when it comes to movies. If you picky, then stick with big budget movies. If you not picky, then check it out."
