I have read the book, True To The Game and the others in the series which I enjoyed. As a serious reader and writer of my own novels, it was very refreshing to hear this book was being made into a movie. I saw it last night at a theater in Vegas and I must say, it was good. The sound, story line, DP, soundtrack, and acting was good. Many independent film projects do not receive the attention they should. And this film had new faces as actors and actresses which were great. It is boring to continue to see the same faces in movies. Very few urban fiction books make it to main stream movie theaters and this one was a pleasure to sit back and watch. Go see it. If you desire to see more independent films in theaters, then support the one that do make it. I like this movie and it inspires me to remain focused on my own book to movie film project. I could watch this movie again.
