A year ago, Bashir “Bo” Wolfe turned down an academic scholarship to raise his little sister after his mother died. His father passed away years ago, leaving him the man of the house. He performs street magic and sales drugs to support them both. When he leaves at night, his neighbor Georgia looks after his sister Tina a.k.a. “T”. During a trick, Holly left her number is his money bag.  Interested, he calls her back for a 1st date. However, before the date, he meets with his supplier Angelo. Angelo handles his cartel as if it is a corporation. He expects courtesy and respect. He understands that co-workers don’t have to like each other but they must work together. Bo is fine with selling drugs and sees Angelo as a big brother until he sees Angelo’s dark side. Angelo asks Bo to do something that makes him sick to his stomach. Now, Bo wants to buy his way out and get T out of the neighborhood and into a better school. He comes up with a plan to get $15,000, to pay Angelo, and to leave with Holly and T. However when Angelo finds out this was at his expense, he gives Bo a week to get $45,000 or everyone he loves is dead. Bo will need to come up with the money or create a new magic trick to save his family.

This is a super-hero origin story told in great detail. Even though Bo is a dealer you have compassion for his situation. You cheer for him when he decides to get out, pity him when he is in horrible circumstances, and hope for him when the chips are down. This movie is inventive like Iron-man, has the love of Taken, with the street-wise characters of Boyz-N-Da-Hood (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). It has something for everyone. Fans of Dule’ Hill will love him as the bad guy Angelo. His natural charisma of calm and collected works to make Angelo mouthwateringly sinister. Jacob Latimore’s range of emotions shines through in every scene (caring for his sister, falling for his girlfriend, and fearing death & destruction of his family). This will soon have a cult following and may even have a part 2. See it in theaters.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

You can do whatever you want, but don’t buy drugs to impress girls – Bo

You know I have never met a cute magician before – Holly

Yea, 3 of them – Tina

I guess I’m gonna die alone – Georgia

Anyone can do a trick but being able to do something no one else can do makes you a magician – Bo

Here you go. First date’s on me – Angelo
