Anyway, if you would like a direct and clear view of the crime and life of the average ghetto black in chicago, this movie is perfect. It was very interesting. Just not really a movie, with no creativity, no brilliant arrangements, just random excerpts of blacks and information presented randomly. Good content just not well done. Expand

No question that reducing violence in our cities is an important issue, but it can be tough to relate to people who might kill each other over a $5 debt. Much respect goes out to those people who work daily on the thankless task of reducing this violence. Expand

James captures well the endemic nature of the violence and the breadth of pain and fear it causes. There are a few emotional scenes, perhaps the most so being a former robber’s attempt to reconcile with a victim.

There are a few emotional scenes, perhaps the most so being a former robber’s attempt to reconcile with a victim. The movie does not seem to have a strong dramatic movement, though, from one situation to a different one. James just keeps us going around and around. Well, of course, it’s a documentary, and the filmmaker can only work with the material available. Expand
