Two brothers grow up together in the same Brooklyn housing projects, but they are as opposite as good and evil. Victor Dunham has a family, works two jobs and leads a respectable life. His 19-year-old brother, Strike, hangs out with his friends on a bench and sells crack cocaine. Strike agrees to kill a rival dealer as a favor to Rodney, the neighborhood drug kingpin, but when the man is murdered, it is Victor who confesses. Detective Rocco Kleine won't buy Victor's confession, and begins to attempt to break down the stories of both brothers in order to save Victor.

SDH (subtitles for the deaf &/or hearing impaired) & CC (closed captions) quality review:
The DVD has very poor quality sub-titles and no cc's available. The optional use sub-titles have blurry white letters superimposed over the movie scenes without a horizontal black background banner: Entire words are frequently completely unreadable. If director Spike Lee approved the distribution of this film w/ these very poorly designed sub-titles for the hearing impaired or deaf it'd very very disappointing.
~ re the film itself, I managed to watch half, then turned it off. Don't bother: Awful script; the cinematography is dreadful.

I'm not a huge Spike Lee fan, But I enjoyed this movie very much. John Turturro, Harvey Keitel, and Mekhi Phifer are all wonderful in this. I would recommend this to Spike Lee fans as well as fans of shows like The Wire.

Rodney: Errol told me you talked to the homicide cop. How'd that go?
Ronald 'Strike' Dunham: It was a-ight.
Rodney: 'A-ight' or 'all right'?
Ronald 'Strike' Dunham: It was a-ight. All right?

Rodney: [sigh] If God created anything better than crack cocaine he kept that s**t for himself.

Strike is a young city drug pusher under the tutelage of drug-lord Rodney Little, who, when not playing with model trains or drinking Moo for his ulcer, just likes to chill with his brothers near the benches outside the project houses. When a night man at a fast-food restaurant is found with four bullets in his body, Strike's older brother turns himself in as the killer. Det. Rocco Klein doesn't buy the story, however, and sets out to find the truth, and it seems that all the fingers point toward Strike & Rodney
