Viewer Review: "Powerful! This is an excellent movie that presents a realistic view of south central at that time. I lived there and this is one of the few movies that showed a realistic view of real life in the hood. Glenn Plummer's acting is outstanding! Many parts of this movie touched a lot of us on the streets, the overall cast acting is great. This movie laid the foundation for other popular hood movies like boyz n da hood and others, but it is much more than a hood movie it takes you through the struggles of life on the streets and how sometimes you can't help the situation that you're in. This is a love story.. the love between a real father and his son, and how a small corrupted group can effect the whole community, on the other hand how a corrupted gang member can also be saved by a strong willful cultured person like Ali. This is a truly must-see movie!"
