Solid film out of Jamaica with universal themes. Enjoy!
Verified purchase
This is a solid film. The characters/acting, storyline, and dialogue are all believable. The plot was particularly interesting because there was far more at stake than just a boxing match win. The film has a lot of conflict, "us against them" themes, and it was all very informative about how politics impacts the community. There's a beautiful show of unity too. I was definitely rooting for the good guy and loved to hate the villian. Great acting! My favorite line was "don't look for revenge, it just happens." ...So don't look for another movie, just watch this one :)

Outstanding piece about a young man fighting his way out of a political situation. It's got Jamaican pride, boxing excitement, dramatic flair and a lot of style. The acting is superb, the plot unfolds in an exciting way, it is very engaging. From the beginning to the end you will find yourself highly interested, waiting to see what comes next. It's a small film with a big heart.

emotional and exciting story line

the acting was not the best. B rated movie but the story line was very good. I watched "once upon a time in Hollywood" and I enjoyed this movie a lot more. I want to say only Jamaicans would understand. well done Jamaicans. keep moving forward.

Another Chris Browne Hit!!
Verified purchase
Violence galore but a thought provoking social commentary with an uplifting message. 'Sin' joins the cast of memorable villains Browne continues to conjure up (See also 'Third World Cop' by the same director). With decent performances from a mostly young cast, this film also has a nice sound track that lends to the excitement. The locations were well chosen with the contrast between town and country being nicely highlighted. The DVD also features a sparse 'behind the scenes/making of' featurette which hints at the challenges indie film-makers face outside of the U.S.A.
