Movie Review by Movie Addict
January 28th, 2014

Favorite Movie Quote: "They f*cking shot him! They shot him in the f*cking back for no reason, man!"

Oscar (Michael B. Jordan) is an ex-con who is desperately trying to get his life back on track. His girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz) is still fuming about his having sex with another woman. He was fired from his job at a supermarket for repeatedly showing up late and his boss is unwilling to reconsider his decision. Oscar, feeling at the end of his rope, considers going back to selling drugs but dumps the marijuana he has in the ocean. He decides to get a head start on his New Year's resolutions.

Unfortunately, all many see is a young black man in a hoodie. All their prejudices are wrapped up in the visual because they never take the time to get to know anyone who doesn't fit in their proscribed world view.

One minute Oscar is celebrating with friends, and the next a cruel and violent cop takes his life.

How many more must die before we change our attitudes, and understand and appreciate each other as fellow passengers on a train toward tomorrow.
