Homeboyz II: Crack City

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Drama; Starring: McKinley Winston, Brian Paul Stuart; MPAA Rating: Unrated

What happens when nice boys (well, relatively nice boys) sell drugs? It’s not good and eventually involves a lot of cussin’ and blood. Writer-director Daniel Matmor’s film is socially conscious, self-conscious, and, at times, dramatically, barely conscious. Yet there is a certain raw energy and undisciplined baroque flair on display in Homeboyz II: Crack City. Add terrible acting and weepy sanctimoniousness, and the result is mostly insufferable. C-
