"Clockers" is a disappointing effort from Spike Lee. It is brilliantly filmed and well acted but it marks a decline from the works that made Spike Lee famous such as "Do The Right Thing" and "Jungle Fever". These were much more powerful films which were more controversial and thought provoking. Clockers is too repetitive and becomes uninteresting, a contrast to the must-sees of Lee's earlier career. The cast is full of people that have done better jobs in other Spike Lee films such as John Turturro. There is almost a feeling that this film has been made just for the sake of making a film about drugs on the streets rather than offering any real messages. For Spike Lee at his brilliant best check out "Do The Right Thing", "Malcolm X", and "Jungle Fever".
