Good movie! Worth watching.

Eschews anything in the way of style or flashiness (save for a potato silencer) in favor of pure heart and great performances from relatively unknown actors.

Havent seen it in a while but can see why I loved this movie. Absolutely mesmerizing in how you get caught up in this movie and truly feel emotionally invested in the characters. Couldn't fight back the tears that welled up in my eyes as I wiped them away.

South Central is a film that is great to talk about after watching. That revolves around the cycle and violence that is in the black community with gang violence overcoming the streets and families being left in sorrow after losing a loved one. Glenn Plummer as Bobby Johnson is a great actor in this film with him playing a likable yet sometimes unapologetic character having been in prison little did he know weeks after being let out he would be back in for 10 years. No other performance really stuck out besides Carl Lumbly as Ali who feels Bobby's struggle and wants to help guide him into making better choices and to change himself to save his son which Ali could not explaining how the cycle of violence sticks in the African american community. Bobby changes his ways and leads on a search for his son, while I loved mainly two performances in the film, Christian Coleman as Jimmie had a little bit of awkward performance but at times his acting excelled. South Central is a great film about the cycle of violence, hurt, and gangs, and what would you do to save your son is a keypoint and this is a question left you.

really like the movie and support it it needs it it is a not a very well known movie I'd say it is good but isn't on the level of "boyz n the hood" or "juice" but still very personal sad and true if your into early 90s black crime dramas films this is a must even if you aren't if you want to see a personal true sad real movie that's not a mainstream one look no further than south central a emotional movie too almost brings a tear to my eye obviously american history x ripped this off
