The Critics Are Partly Wrong.
Verified purchase
After reading how the critics panned this movie I wonder if they watched it. The movie has a very dark yet thoughtful feel to it. If we understand that critics rarely have talent as actors or screenwriters we can see how this nice movie could be so underrated by them. Wesley Snipes plays his role with a warm compassion for those around him. Michael Wright does overact quite a bit but he probably had a few years to go to become a good actor. Clarence Williams III was superb as the father. Theresa Randle is very good as the girlfriend. I almost fell in love with her myself. She seemed like the perfect woman. The rest of the movie is straight gangster done by a black cast except for Abe Vigoda who played his part excellently.
The opening scene and the scene about the mother and father is very good and sets up the whole movie. Especially the scene with the father and the thugs on the roof, which is fantastic. We understand so much about Roem's motives from that scene that we appreciate his later life and his rage toward the things which affect him later.
I usually don't like movies which are from the nineties but this one stands out. It is worth watching.

I enjoyed this dark movie... the troubles... love, and complications a black man may experience within the many relations in his life and the choices he makes because of them.

A strong emotional movie
Verified purchase
I don't give this movie a 5 because it's so sad but I truly hope the message is heard throughout our black communities "No, son, this will not happen again." hoping our black boys will grow up successful and strong.

Entendía que debía permitir a sus miembros de Amazon prime más tiempo para poderla ver pero no te dan los 30días que dicen! Además la calidad no fue la mejor!

Classic Oldie
Verified purchase
Product was shipped in a timely manner. It was in excellent condition, no flaws that I could find whatsoever. I had been looking for this movie for some time, and each time either was a sell-out or just hadn't found the right company to provide it! I am pleased that these days there are so many companies that one can research to find oldies that may possibly have been discontinued. Thank you for your expedience in getting the product to me . Will be using your company again. Thanks.
