It's pretty good, but Naomie Harris' performance is the only thing that's great about it in my opinion.

Interesting structure with a great cast... that's utterly ruined by dull direction and DRAGGING pacing.

It was...fine. I agree it drags. Harris' performance was also my favorite part. Ali is good as well.

Its basically Brokeback Mountain but with black men in an inner city setting as apposed to white men out in the country.

The first act was great but the rest of the film went nowhere.

When kindness is so rare and the spark of innocence can be extinguished with such ease, it's hard to keep a young flame burning. In this sort of environment, it's a miracle any light survives at all.
