decent enough film not advanced story telling though, with a somewhat predictable ending.

Nothing new under the sun with this straight to DVD flick. I wonder if it was even necessary to put it on DVD in the first place. I'm no sure folks would pay any amount of many to watch it, weather that's rent or buy. This type of predictable and generic movie is best suited for TV. Sunday afternoon cinema. The type that doesn't require much though or energy. And when it's over you go do the dishes and don't have a second though about it.

An interesting idea that was kind of a mix between "24" and " Dead Poets Society". The occasional split screens definitely was an artistic choice that worked for this film.

Emotionally gripping movie. Hughley does a great job as the teacher looking for redemption. A must see for any teachers having issues with the students in their community or classroom.

This movie is verry much over looked, and rightfully so, just look at the cover. It rely's on the star power of D.L. Hughley, and thats it's downfall. The split screen stuff with the poet is really cool. It makes me think of that line from a scatman john sont"The book's in his shoping cart is probably the best education he's ever going to have." This movie is pretty damn good and surprisingly well made.

Low budget film but really interesting. I liked it mainly for the spoken word poetry.

Maybe tried to say too much...but worth it even for the floetry! Struck a little close to home, or work, rather!

Really good slam poetry... worth it just for that. And it didn't have a stupid Hollywood plot-ending.
