I do not know where to begin, I will start with the plot it was just bad I'm sorry but it was all over the place and at times I could not tell who the main character was whether it was the dad or the son. The ending was just awful like there was no fulfillment and purpose to the film. I guess you could argue that the point was the son forgave his dad however that was portrayed poorly at the end or you could suggest that getting his son to stay away from people taking advantage of him by tricking him with money and girls but he seemed smart enough to of not done that by himself so his dad was not really needed in the plot.
Also, they created a side plot with that woman in the apartments which I felt like they just gave up and didn't bother to conclude and just threw in a quick scene of her on a bus leaving at the end but it did not feel like a fulfilled ending to that story. Also, it was super unrealistic as I do not think a woman forced to be a sex worker will then want to have sex all night straight after being "saved".
Oh and don't get me started with the magical basketball at the end that magically teleported from the prison to the court.
feels like a TV movie. the FS version has much more vertical image (so I watched that, which increased the TV vibe). also the score is terrible.
Ray Allen, who played the son, became one of the key players of the 2000's
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
