Noel Murray Los Angeles Times The movie has enough of Woods' flavor to put a memorable spin on a familiar genre - so much so that it's almost a crime it isn't better. Sep 7, 2017 Full Review Teo Bugbee New York Times Though Ms. Woods's novel was a resonant entry in the crime genre when it came out nearly 20 years ago, this adaptation lacks the vision to find a fresh angle on her story.

Audience Member great plot, haven't read the book yet but very relatable on the street tip. i love how authentic the issues and situations were, could've been a little more high budgeted but other than that it was great! the ending was somewhat confusing, but maybe they'll create a second one! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Stilted dialogue and hardly a unique script, but was entertaining anyway Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie was worth watching. It had a few sad moments. The end was bitter-sweet. The cast was great. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member could haVe did way betTEr!! Needed a better director to see the vision the book was goIng in Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Really Entertaining just like the book can't wait for the next one Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie was good, but could have been better in regards to editing and musical score. Some of the actors fell short of doing a good job, but it was fairly solid. I dislike comparing movies, but it was like a low talent mash up of 'Carlito's Way' and 'Scarface'. Some of the landscape shots were nice Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
