As a Jamaican, I'm pleased to see this film going where it's going. It's unfortunate that the director is quickly garnering a reputation of being unprofessional and quite unpleasant (I've had the displeasure of interacting with him on occasion and I can attest to this being true), but what this film represents is so much bigger than him so I hope it is a resounding success for all parties involved.
