Dope movie, instant classic

This film focuses on the realities of growing up in bad neighborhoods and why people strive to escape the hood

6 / 10

If the plot interests you, see it.

So I was really into this movie. It has great character development and the script is pretty tight. The main character is very likeable and you really want to see her succeed. However the movie forced itself into a drama around the 75% mark. I'm conflicted because while 'I enjoyed the first half I thought the second half was really contrived and somewhat ...confusing. I don't usually write reviews but I saw how few there were and thought I should add one.

Ultimately the film is really enjoyable if you like the subject and plot. I can see this being a 7 or an 8 for some people easily. However for me I was disappointed with the mishmash of characters and the blatant use of irony towards the end. I still think this movie is worth seeing though. I think the writer has talent but they need to make sure they don't grab too many strings tying up loose ends.(?).

Just don't watch it if your hungry because they are in an Asian restaurant a lot of the time!!!!

Great Movie!

I've used IMD for about 10 years now, I think this is the first written review i've done... this is a great movie all around...must see... I watch hundreds of movies a year, most are trash, I just skip though them, never thought once of skipping any part in this movie...

9 / 10

Positive surprise

Didn't expect much from this movie but I really liked it. Great story and acting. Also some really beautiful and touching scenes.

5 / 10

Solid film

I was so unimpressed with the opening 5 minutes I was ready to turn it off. Eventually the story got better and I was in. The story has a lot potential to really grab the audience. But its cast and camera work are very raw and you just don't get immersed into it 100$%

Good job for a budget movie I suppose but I think a better cast and production would have made this movie an 8.
