Movie Info

Wounded in the war, Tommy Donahue (Chris Kerson) and DD Davis (Will Blagrove) return home from Iraq to the crime-stricken neighborhood in North Philadelphia they grew up in. Tommy returns to his wife, Faith (Judy Jerome), whom he abandoned while she was pregnant to escape a life of crime. DD returns to find that his older brother Darnell (Nakia Dillard) has risen to become the neighborhood kingpin. Tommy meets his disabled six year-old daughter, Hope (Maddie M. Jones), for the first time, and she begins to melt his frozen heart. DD faces the pressure to save his younger brother, James (Daveed Ramsay), from following in Darnell's dangerous footsteps. Tommy and DD find themselves trapped in the same ghetto they joined the military to escape. As they struggle for redemption, their own families become entangled in a web of crime, corruption and violence. -- (C) Rogue

Technically accomplished but dramatically unconvincing.

Kirkpatrick keeps stomping on the drama pedal while blowing the cliché horn, yielding scene after tired scene of predictable developments as the principals keep shoving guns into mouths and screaming obscenities.

This low-budget drama has a gutsy handle on what makes a crime drama crackle.

As one bloody encounter treads on the heels of the next, all that remains is a tiny indie undone by its own vicious ambitions.

It's a lousy movie, but it has spunk.
