This is a splendid movie about accountability, or lack thereof. Good kids. Bad kids. A woman attacked in the dead of night. Everybody is dealt a bad hand in this movie. Then the race card is played and justice is up for grabs.

I saw this movie about 13 years ago, purchased and missplaced it during a move. so I repurchased it. I had a different reaction to the movie this time. This movie deals with the murder of a suburban, causcasian women from New Jersey, by some African American juveniles from the Bronx. At the beginning of the movie we see the murder victim taking a self-defense class and the instructor commending her for doing a good job. Next we see the four African American youths in a vacant lot, spray painting a car, we later see them on a subway, singing and are asked to leave by police. They then steal a car, and miss their turn on the freeway, also the murder victim who is talking to her husband on the car phone, has missed her turn. She encounters the teenagers because the stolen car is about to run out of gas, she becomes frightened, maces on of them and he pistol whips her and she is murdered while her husband hears the whole thing on the cell phone.
The movie becomes somewhtat predictable after that, the community activists get involved and turn the crime into a circus, while the husband is seething with anger, and rightly so because the victim's rights and the victim have been forgotten. when the husband tries to speak for his wife no one wants to hear what he has to say. So the inevitable then happens. The was a very good movie. It will make you angry, and it will also make you think. It will make you take a hard look at the media, the victims, the perpetrators of the crimes,the justice system.

Excellent film. It is just as relevant today as it was when the film was made. All you have to do is look around...same old same old.

Forced dialog with forced acting.

I did not like this because the actors were not thawed out before they spoke the lines written by someone that should have done something else for a living.
