Another side of JamaicaBy a customer , 24 May 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]A decent film that's worth watching. It shows a side of tough Jamaican life that tourists don't see. One young man struggling against the corrupt garrison politics in Kingston in order to change his life for the better. If you're unfamiliar with Jamaican patois, the subtitles will help you but does not distract from the movie.
one of those movies you can watch againBy a customer , 11 Oct 2013it hits hard and gets you emotionally involved for sure. So sad to think that this kind of behaviour is going on in the world every day, people oppressing the decisions and lives of others - it was a good movie
Worth watchingBy Bristolbabe (7 reviews) , 28 Sep 2013Good film worth a watch. Takes while to get into it but couldn't take my eyes off it once I was into it.
Deep JamaicaBy Sedge4427 (22 reviews) , 10 Jul 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI couldnt get into this movie what with the deep Jamaican dialogue... Rass man ect Not that I have a problem with Jamaican dialoue I don't, I have a problem with sub titles. Yes the movie has subs so if you can put up with that than ok I cant so I am sorry to say I turned it off. Take no notice of my star rate.
The Real Side To Jamaica! 5/10By Pacino247 (200 reviews) , 08 Jul 2013Review: I quite enjoyed this movie because it didn't glorify the violence in Jamaica, like many other films do, and it shows that some people can find there way out of the ghetto. As I have Jamaican parents, I didn't have to bother with the annoying subtitles and I was able to understand the many complex situations. The director put the movie together well and he made the audience care about what happens to the main character who was just looking for a way out. I also enjoyed the cinematography which made the movie more believable and it brought back some good memories. I think that people will find something that they will enjoy in the film because it covers a wide spectrum of life in Jamaica. Enjoyable! Round-Up: A lot of people that watch the movie will have to use the subtitles because some of the twang is quite coarse and the characters talk quite fast. The political problems in Jamaica, still exist and there is a major divide between the 2 parties, which is premise of the movie so the situation is very real. I just hope that the film gets the viewers that it deserved. Budget: $1. 2million Worldwide Gross: N/A I recommend this movie to people who are into Jamaican movies of a young boy trying to get out of the ghetto. 5/10
Brill Film...By a customer , 24 May 2013A very good story of the struggles people face in poverty stricken parts of Jamaica... It shows the determination needed to succeed and follow your dreams.
