Meh -- fair script but pushes you to pull for drug dealer?!
20 November 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, this is one of those movies where the lead character is a likable victim. He is shy and reserved but gets pulled into drama and makes bad choices, the anti-hero. BUT he is played as a HERO. If you disagree, you are racist?! This kid forgoes a college scholarship to take care of his baby sister (I guess he couldn't do that in college). SO, then he becomes a drug dealer. Then he becomes a violent felon. Then he betrays a close friend for money. And on and on. But we are supposed to pull for him. He lies and steals and carries a gun into a crime and ...... not a hero. Sorry -- don't feel sorry for the lifetime victim. Get a job, son.
