Audience Reviews for Youngblood

I really Enjoyed this movie. The 70's style and funk flows through the angsty teen drama. The deteriation of young african american youth in LA is depicted clearly in this film and its drastic consequences while adding interesting story in gang culture at the time. it's a classic i'm not to sure why more people haven't watched. It could have moved at faster points at ome times and m,ore characters could have been fleshed out.
