Steve D Doesn't give a clear enough picture of the man. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/07/23 Full Review delysid d i was amazed by how good this movie was, its great Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/18 Full Review Audience Member I remember this film being shot way back in the mid-1970's as a young child. The gang initiation scene was shot in Ft. Greene Park in Brooklyn as I rode the bus to school. We saw the finished product and was mesmerized by the content and its message. The film resonated with many of the people we lived with in the Brooklyn projects that you can make it, if you make the choice to do so. It's a hidden gem and highly recommended!. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best movies Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Classic! I grew up on this movie. A must have!
