  • Dark film

    By Fred 1000
    I enjoyed it's a great story but the scenario at the end is somehow with not enought substence, expect that point the film is well done, acting is great, filming good. I think the movie need an aditional 30mn to make it complete =) Overall it's a good movie to watch in winter and at night alone.
  • Boring and dumb

    By TheSpartan01
    This could have been a good movie, but it’s just boring, Nothing much really happens, A kid starts informing for the feds to help save his dad, then the feds cut him loose, and he keeps dealing, and gets caught, and serves 30 years. That is not the synopsis, that is the whole story.
  • Another in a long line of trash from MM

    By tonester56
    They decided by committee on this one. Put Matthew M in the lineup and we should make our distribution cost. Say no more. Its trashy, illiterate, ill conceived. Filmed by COMMITTEE not talent.
  • Terrible

    By Lost_in_Space_1
    Somebody forgot how to edit.. or it was the best attempt at putting together a story with 3-4 hours of disparate scenes. Having grown up on the west side of Detroit, I'm very familiar with the story, including the FBI's involvement and their attempts to implicate Coleman Young and Gil Hill. I was looking forward to the film adaptation. Super disappointing. Even the fake snow looked as if it had been haphazardly blown onto the lawn in one scene. Definitely top 10 material for worst of 2018 (a terrible year for movies).

  • Excellent movie πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    By Faux Anonymity
    I really enjoyed this movie. A poignant film about intersecting worlds. As always, Matthew Is awesome, showing depth of character. And the young man playing the title character is also really great in his role. This movie is much, much more about family than it is about the drug trade. Highly recommend πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  • Boring

    By pholly
    This is just a long, boring movie about a useless human being who got what he deserved and it seemed like the movie makers were trying to make this into a sympathetic story of a criminal with no redeeming qualities.
