For April 15th- Raising the Heights

What’s weird is: I didn’t think they actually made films like this.  A city held in fear by crime and cartoonish amounts of racism.  Then some idealistic youths set out to conquer with new age idealism.  Really stereotypical, but whatever.

Story/Writing: .5/2

Fairly awful.  Ridiculous amounts of undeveloped subplots.  Tries too hard to be a lot of things at once.

Acting: .5/2

Again, really over the top in the worst way possible.

Photography/Set: 1/2

Decent cityscapes, and the colors are okay.

Sound/FX: 1/2

Not terrible, but not very good either.  Actually pretty normal for a flick of this quality and style.

Misc: .5/2

Fairly forgettable.

VERDICT: 3.5/10
