There, he pushes back against his surrounding limitations as he tries to find a way out of his own internal prison.
Gritty, believable tale of ex-con life in a dismal community
I'm not sure what the other reviewers were expecting, but this is an all-too-accurate tale of a ex-con who has come home to face his demons, while he tries to make a new life. No, there are no "superheroes" and no CGI action, if that's what you were looking for! It's all too real and all too believable to the point that that the film is a more than a little scary to watch. The main characters go full force into their roles and if you were expecting a happy ending...well, don't.
McCaul Lombardi was an excellent choice to play the lead role of "Keith" and never lets us down in his believability. The film is shot in the vein of "The Wire" and gives an accurate depiction of how sad some area of Baltimore have become.
One star subtracted, though, for all the unnecessary use of the tobacco drug, which should have been left of this and all other films!
