Critic Reviews for Premium
In gasoline terms, Premium isn't. But the romantic dramedy has some high-octane emotional moments, thanks to writer-director Pete Chatmon's wise dissection of the games one-time lovers play.
Standout thesping by stars Dorian Missick and Zoe Saldana, along with fully fleshed-out secondary roles, distinguish Pete Chatmon's gentle comedy.
Chatmon reworks many elements of Robert Townsend's erratic 1987 film Hollywood Shuffle into a fluent story that favors character over satire.
A high-stakes romantic comedy which pits a bourgie brother against another from the 'hood who knows how to keep it real.
Has a problem with its slack and meandering narrative...but it's still well worth a look for its generous wit, casual insightfulness, and love of humanity.
Audience Reviews for Premium
Low budget film about a guy who is a struggling actor that comes in contact with his old girlfriend and finds out she is getting hitched in a few days to another man. He is still in love with this girl who is getting married. I didn't like the ending. Dorian Missick and Zoe Saldana make the film worth watching. 5/10
Enjoyed the movie. Can somewhat relate to Cool's character. I've always been told you'll make it & you'll be great at what you do! My, my.......having what it takes, but big break just hasn't come along yet.
Interesting independent film, good performances.
