| Cool movie
I was shocked to see the low rating of this movie. It's a really cool 80s movie. I didn't see all of it, but it actually looks just as good as The Warriors, and clearly Michael Jackson was inspired by this (or vice versa). It looks exactly like the stuff from Beat it and Bad. Of course, also other cool 80s movies. It really has all the kitch-value. I wonder why this movie is so little known. I had not heard about it either, until I saw it tonight. Anyway, it is very good, with some great music and action. Clearly this is an excellent description of the rap and hip-hop environment in an urban environment in the 80s and in the USA.
