Hard hitting true to life film, centering on family values
on 11 January 2001
Bullet is a superbly shot film and brilliantly played by the films major actors, i.e. Tupac Shakur and Micky Rourke. There are no complex plots or storylines, but it is an excellent reprentative of gang warfare and family values. Tupac plays the gang drug lord to perfection. He has excellent character, great lines and the part was made for him. Micky Rourke plays the Jewish boy brilliantly also. Just released from jail, he tries hard to leave crime behind but cannot do it. His character is deeply complex. A strong intelligent man, who loves his family. He has one brother who is a psycho army guy, another brother who is a smart talented artist, and a mother who works hard to keep the family together and a father who has a severe anxiety disorder.
After watching the film you realise what true family values are about. Looking out for one and other, caring for eachother, and watching eachother's backs.
I loved it and thought it was top class from beginning to end. I would recommend it highly.
