Great US Gang Film. When I first watched this film a few years ago (10-15), I didn't really understand the Father's anti-gang mentality. Apart from the fact that he does bird for something he done for the gang. However, being a bit older now, and our perspectives of life change as we get older I can see the Fathers side to things. And also the fact I'm not American and live in Essex, we have no idea what the gang culture has been like over in the US/LA.
Having watched a few more documentaries and read about the gang culture over in La, I can get a grasp of it's ugliness. Which I think is put over well in this film. But a good film none the less.
Oh, be careful it's only Region 1. I had trouble trying to watch this one, that's why it's been given a 3 star.
