More hugs, less drugs
2 February 2005 | by nkdcainSee all my reviews

This film's main strong point is that it shows a positive side of the 'urban' film. Rather than dwelling on a lifestyle of poverty, desperation and death it touches on themes of family and community. The colorful characters that populate Gas bond deeper through external and internal adversity to achieve a certain harmony that as a viewer make you want to be a part of. I enjoyed the celebration of life in Gas rather than death in many urban films about drugs and violence.

The storyline of the two brothers at odds is a staple of cinematic culture. This was the strongest point of the film. I especially liked how the uptight, smarter brother realized he was being judgmental of his younger sibling and found a way to help shine light in a way to help him achieve his dreams.
