  1. If you want old-school cool, you go to Laurence Fishburne.
  2. For all the testosterone-driven soap opera, this entertainingly confused coming-of-age story is a seductive fantasy, a rare portrait of urban underworld machismo without the violence and the viciousness.
  3. 50
    It's too long and self-consciously progressive to be entertaining, but it's too well-intentioned to be dismissed altogether.
  4. There's more than a little Oedipal melodrama tossed into the mix. But the movie rarely gets as sappy or as contrived as one keeps expecting.
  5. 38
    However you pronounce Bythewood -- I assume it's by-the-wood -- his work here is strictly by the numbers.
  6. Has the stink of man-musk all over it.
  7. The movie is so sloppily written and directed that its bits of bluster never cohere.
