Well from what i've seen so far… i would definitely check this out. Hope more people would do the same. Also hoping that more Black people would go out and support more Black movies. We tend to have this great opinion about our movies without checking them out first. Would love to see more of this movie…

Left me wanting more, can't wait to see it.


OTHER SONG I am in agreement with you. If that was a trailer above they could have done a whole lot better to try to convey the theme of the film. For a trailer we really don't need credits or stuff like that. Convey the story in the short amount to time you've got. All I got is sista shopping at expensive stores(hence the oversized bags), then sista dead with bullet in head lying on floor next to a gun. That is really not a lot to go running to my local Rave Pictures to plunk down the duckets. (Say it softly – video).

looks too melodramatic for my tastes – but good looking leads, particularly the sistas.


This looks like it could be a TV movie on BET or a series.
