"A lot of people already know this story from the book but this mini series sheds a new light on it. The 3 part mini series is to good to be true so you know a lot of people have been asking that it be turned into a season series because of it's originality. The fact that it's not the same old TV show with the same conflicts and story lines definitely makes it stand out. It also has a stand up cast, The actor I respect most is Sean Nelson also known as Charlie in the show who would be most recognized from 1994's Fresh or 2005's Their eyes were watching god.
Nelson put in the fire and anger the show needed to keep it moving. If you don't know the story Miracle's Boys are about 3 brothers living in present day New York. The problem is that their mother who was the heart and back bone of the family died and right before her death her second eldest son Charlie was arrested for stealing and is sent to Juvenile hall. The oldest brother Ty'ree has to take care of his other teen brother Lafayette.
If that isn't bad enough Charlie is getting out and returns home with a huge attitude but nobody knows why. Miracle's boy is very interesting and will have viewers wanting more of a story after every episode even the last. I previewed this dvd and the picture and sound is excellent and it is also packed with extras and the making of Miracle's boys."
A Descent Movie is a "Miracle" these days...

"This movie was original, creative, and interesting. You can definitely watch this with your family and learn a lot of lessons from it. It shows there's a way to convey a positive message wtihout violence, sex, drugs, and profanity. It shows we can be entertaining without resorting to those things, and that is "keeping it real".
Now I need to go and read the book now that I saw the movie."
