oh, and did I say bad? The acting is horrible and even if this is one of those low-budget films, the writing is so jumpy from one place to another that it seems either the writer or the director could not make up their mind what they wanted the movie to be.
The intent of what the movie wanted to portray was good, and even if not original, it can be done well, but it was not the case with this one.
Stay away from this track, it will just lead you to wasted time
The film is pretty emotional to watch as you get a glimpse at how easily an individual's life can be thrown upside down from the smallest bad decision (rather the result was intended or not). The struggle the juvenile faces prior and in prison is hard to watch, as well as the "Time" his family is spending as well, such as his mother and high school girlfriend while they are forced to watch their loved one suffer.
A student of Criminal Justice, this movie plays with my mind a bit, realizing the power our system holds in its hands when making pending on decisions of circumstance between cases that will rattle lives forever.
Waiting to see if the boy will survive is drawn out in just enough time that it keeps you on the edge of your seat and seeing the aftermath of the entire situation is rough but inspiring.
Pretty decent film! Ice-T makes a performance as a correction officer and sings some of the songs. A very well done movie like documentary of what goes on in prisons and those who are forced to do "Hard-Time".
Kind of low budget.
Ice T was good.
