      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader Early scenes reminiscent of Hollywood Shuffle spoof the typecasting of African-Americans as pimps and drug dealers, but when the hero finally lands an audition for a dignified role in a serious film he falls flat on his face. Jul 13, 2022 Full Review Steve Murray Atlanta Journal-Constitution In gasoline terms, Premium isn't. But the romantic dramedy has some high-octane emotional moments, thanks to writer-director Pete Chatmon's wise dissection of the games one-time lovers play. Rated: B- Mar 1, 2007 Full Review Nick Schager Slant Magazine Premium's believable moments slightly prevail over its inauthentic ones, helping writer-director Pete Chatmon's modestly played drama just barely cross over the brink of compelling naturalism. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 20, 2007 Full Review Frank Lovece Film Journal International Has a problem with its slack and meandering narrative...but it's still well worth a look for its generous wit, casual insightfulness, and love of humanity. Apr 2, 2007 Full Review Kam Williams EURWeb A high-stakes romantic comedy which pits a bourgie brother against another from the 'hood who knows how to keep it real. Rated: 2/4 Mar 8, 2007 Full Review Wilson Morales BlackFilm.com Chatmon's ability to inject humor while addressing some serious issues with the film business and romantic relationships add to his talent and makes "Premium" worth seeing. Rated: 3/4 Feb 26, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member I thought it was an interesting movie. I thought the actors were good in their roles. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Low budget film about a guy who is a struggling actor that comes in contact with his old girlfriend and finds out she is getting hitched in a few days to another man. He is still in love with this girl who is getting married. I didn't like the ending. Dorian Missick and Zoe Saldana make the film worth watching. 5/10 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member this is a real good movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Not to bad..but a bit boring Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyed the movie. Can somewhat relate to Cool's character. I've always been told you'll make it & you'll be great at what you do! My, my.......having what it takes, but big break just hasn't come along yet.
