Audience Reviews for South Bronx Heroes

South Bronx Heroes is a drama that is way better than its reputation would suggest. I found it to be a very effective drama about the ghetto and runaways and how very different lives can cross into each other in unexpected ways. The story is well written, the acting is pretty good, there are moments of really funny humor, and some heartfelt moments sprinkled in the right places. It's a very underrated drama, in my opinion.
