Format: DVD
Plot. Four friends start out as dope dealers but end up progressing to selling harder drugs.
This film is not your typical gangsters powering to riches through illegal activity, although while that is the story here, it's more of a character orientated drama and the way the boys grow up into men with all the ingredients that take place when people are engaged in illegal activity. Friendships being tested, trust, greed and so on is all covered in a very well written script. The actors are all believable and the story is excellent. This is not one of your run of the mill gangsta hip hop fare which while most are entertaining do not go deeper into the characters. This one does and as urban gangter films go this is up there with Boys 'n The Hood to name one of the crackers in the genre. There's a reasonable amount of violence and brutatality but it's not overly graphic.
Extras include a com, behind the scenes, interviews, deleted and trailers. USA Release. Region 1.

Definitely worth seeing 19 Feb. 2004
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Blue Hill Avenue is the story of 4 friends growing up in Roxbury (Boston). They start with peddling marijuana in high school, and end up as hard core crack dealers. Tristan (played by Allen Payne) is the star of the movie and the leader of the gang.
Throughout the movie, Tristan's family confronts him his dealing. During a particularly painful family incident, Tristan's father approaches Tristan and asks how could he end up a dealer when he came from such a good famliy. Tristan is at a loss for an explanation, and responds to his dad, "Because I'm good at it".
The film includes lots of action, perhaps a bit more violence than was really necessary for the story line. Blue Hill Avenue dares to show how a young man from a decent upbringing can get caught up in the wrong crowd, and how it impacts an otherwise decent family. Towards the end of the movie, Tristan acknowledges that his friends will be the end of him.
Blue Hill Avenue was actually filmed in Canada, in Saint John, New Brunswick. I live in Boston and was impressed how much the location passed for Boston, a good choice on the producer's part.

Must See Kind of Movie! 20 Mar. 2004
By Pamela Jarmon-Wade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This was a great movie (writing/directing/producing). Allen Payne is a wonderful actor and he really gave a stellar performance in Bluehill Avenue. The real treat though was the awesome performances of the supporting cast of up and coming unknowns (Characters of E-Bone, Money and Simon). I have already seen the actors who played Money and Simon appear in other movies. Clarence Williams III always adds distinct flavor to any role he plays. Those of you who are 1970s movie buffs will recognize the character who plays Uncle Rob from one of the Blacula flicks from back in the day. Even though I am not elaborating on the rest of the supporting cast, they are all great (even the teens).
The movie was not predictable, which I appreciated. It did however remind me just a bit of "Jason's Lyric" and "New Jack City". Ingredients that made up the story consist of friendship, loyalty, love, betrayal, trust, self analysis, greed and power. The soundtrack was also enjoyable. The characters were very believable and definitely unforgetable. If you enjoy it or just want to know more...check out the website for more info on cast and behind the scenes at bluehillavenue.com.

Great movie!!!!! 7 Oct. 2004
By Patricia L. Washington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The best "urban" drama I've seen since "New Jack City"

I bought it about 6 months ago and I've watched it at least 6 times since. Love it! It's a very violent movie but a story such as this one can't be sugar coated. This happens everyday somewhere in America.

A Hidden Gem, a must see! 19 April 2006
By Gil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Honestly, I had never heard of this movie until I came across it at the video store. Allen Payne (New Jack City and Jason's Lyric fame) definitely shines as the leading man in this gritty urban film about friendship, trust, loyalty and the price of betrayal. Clarence Williams III and William Forsythe add remarkably to the film and it's content.

Not the Average "Gangsta" Film 1 Jun. 2006
By -*-Miss Lady-*- - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When I first saw this, I must admit, I was skeptical. My first impression was oh boy, here we go again, another bad black film where all the characters are overdone and kill each other....but after someone talked me into giving it a chance, I was floored. This movie, honestly, is on the same level of Goodfellas and Boyz in tha Hood. The fact that you watch the characters come into that lifestyle from childhood, watch the connections that were made, and see the downfall was so real to me I wanted to cry when everything started going bad. I've seen that life, been part of it, and most movies in Hollywood don't get it right on film. This was one of the films that I would recommend to anyone who wants to see what it's like to become a true "dopeboy."

The most moving part of the film for me was when the main character sees his sister after she disappeared and what his parents said to him. This story happens everyday in the streets, and I loved watching it come to light.
