While documenting life on the dangerous streets of South Central LA, a photographer soon begins to wonder whether he'll get out alive.
23 December 2013 | by long_live_west64See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film! I wasn't expecting much, since there are a lot of trashy hood flicks out there, but this one had unexpected power. I cared for the characters a lot. I thought that Brandon Karrer did a great job as Robert, the photographer, Trent Cameron (who was also good in the wood) gives his best performance ever, in my opinion, as Keith. Where are these two? They should get more rolls whether they are big or small. Performances all around were good to me. My favorite being the menacing G-Ride played by the late Lloyd Avery II (R.I.P). This was his last movie and he played his part way too well! I will not spoil any of the movie. It's really easy to follow and has unexpected power to it. It's a shame that this movie is so underrated. I recommend giving this movie a try. I really liked it. It is on Netflix :)
