Reviews
Mine: Stark, disturbing very welll done movie. Hard to say I liked it. Very depressing. Very violent. Hard to watch.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Powerful, unflinching story of life in the Watts district of Los Angeles and one teenager (Turner) who is too immersed in that violent world to get out. Social points are often hammered home, but the atmosphere of tension and random brutality is captured with searing authenticity. Extremely bloody (and profane) but gripping and well acted in naturalistic fashion. Strong debut by Hughes Brothers, who also cowrote story with screenwriter Tyger Williams.
