Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Slow and steady, and with remarkable assuredness, Keith Miller's "Five Star" plays mean-streets drama in the lowest of keys.
Fresh: A low-key but powerfully affecting urban drama that tells a familiar story with such unusual authenticity and dramatic force that it's as if we're seeing it for the first time.
Fresh: It's eye-opening to see an indie approach to this genre.
Rotten: The writer and director, Keith Miller, establishes engaging characters but stifles their thoughts and emotions, sets up dramatic situations but avoids their practicalities and implications.
This movie celebrates the thug life and it is uninspiring. It lacks originality too.
Honest and Intimate
This is an indie crime drama that should not go overlooked. Five Star’s raw style of shooting brings you in for a very close and real look at its characters and the elements that drive them. Intimate storytelling with an edge.
This movie felt real and honest
This movie is pretty good. Yea there are people doing not so legal stuff and it might send the wrong message to the feeble minded people out there, but it was good.
This felt real and honest.
