  1. I am a public defender for Clark County Las Vegas. I grew up in Bank Head, Atlanta. I was blown away by this film. Not only could I relate to this movie, I watch this story in real life everyday. Generations of men, fathers and sons in the same prison. I wish everyone of them could see this film. Because it was so accurate, I decided to do some research on the film maker Ryan Combs. After reading his bio I understood why this movie was right on point. I had my 18 year old son watch it and he found it just as entertaining. I don't think I've seen to many contemporary films that are this real.

    Ving Rhames is one of my all time favorite actors and he never let's me down, and with this film he remains at the top of my list. I don't normally write reviews for movies, but I was so moved by this one, I felt obligated.

  2. I'm certain that if a reviewer was to put in a little bit of research they would be easily able to slate this film. I myself was surprised at the end of the film to be told that this was based on a true story as at times the plot did seem a bit far fetched.

    Do not let this detract from the entertainment factor of the film however. I personally enjoy prison films and for me this is one of the better ones. The acting was credible on the whole, although the fight scenes (few that there are) did look a bit staged. The storyline was enough to keep the viewer interested although at times it did jump back and forwards without making it clear that it was doing so. There are a few moral and religious undertones throughout the film which I personally found to be a positive for the film.

    A decent prison flick.

  3. This film did have potential to be a underground hit, but the direction was missing. Wasn't Ving Rhames best work, but at the same time he wasn't working with the most talented actors. I watched the film to see Nipsey Hussle's work, but was blow away by the plot. Great plot, just wasn't directed right. But the movie is not awful and is watchable a couple of times. it has well meaning message and if you are into prison flicks, this fulfill your needs. I give it a B-! The ending was kind of wack,and lazy. Hopefully it was because of a poor budget Like i said before, don't expect any Oscar winning performances, but it is a good flick to watch. Also, I think the score of the movie could have been better when you have two great rappers in Nipsey Hussle and Gillie the Kid!

  4. I could spend forever pointing out what is wrong with this film but you have to put it into perspective. This is a low budget straight to DVD movie , starring a couple of C list actors who's careers have seen better days and because of that my expectations weren't to high! The story is a typical prison drama one . The acting is poor and the direction is worse but it wasn't totally unwatchable. I didn't care what happened to the characters as they were all pretty much a bunch of animals , despite that , the message sent is the right one despite the sickly religious undertones. Unless your a Ving Rhames fan or your a fan of naff B movies i would suggest you steer well clear of The Wrath of Cain.
