Fresh: The subject and visual style could not be more forcefully matched. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Apr 21, 2015

Fresh: You may not believe a minute of it, though you won't forget Nelson's face. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Apr 21, 2015

Fresh: The acting by Esposito and Jackson is exceptional, but it is on the remarkable face of Nelson that Yakin shows what gets lost when a child beats criminals at their own game. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Apr 21, 2015

Great movie

What an interesting set of plot twists. The little kid can act. Samuel L. Jackson is great too.

The game kings

The game of kings,Chess, stands as a plot device in this gritty inner city drama. Fresh is a drug runner who gets in over his head with the local dealers. His father is a down and out Chess hustler who schools his son in the art of the game, always insisting that chess is not a game but life lessons. Fresh uses the lessons and outsmarts the dealers turning them all against each other. Very fine movie.

It's about time!!!

They only had this classic film for rent at one point. It's about time we can all own a copy of one of the best classics our time. This movie has one of the top spots on my list of classics.
