  • 5 stars "Serious content, with a bit of humor injected into the movie. Mr. Bozeman is a treasure as always. Excellent cast, with a surprise! It also made me think, how race relations are still a challenge...."
  • 5 stars "I loved everything about the movie."
  • 5 stars "This could have been a long, intense film but Thurgood's humor in the film broke the tension, making it thoroughly enjoyable. The film left we wondering where are all of the great giants today. Are they only in our past? I hope not."
