Glad to see some big name stars (Terrence Howard, Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes) lent their support in supporting roles that features younger actors (Shameik Moore, Keean Johnson, Kat Graham etc.) A good social drama with meaningful rants about being black and trying to make a living in New Orleans' lower 9th Ward after Katrina. However, the action scenes are very weak and the final twist is an unnecessary ambiguity. Would be nice if there were an alternate ending in bonus features.

Surprised that those on FEMA are left out:

This whole goddamn situation is... based on lack of responsibility, Demyra. The governor blame the mayor and the mayor blame the fucking president. The president blame FEMA.
Current and pre-disaster address?
-The same.
Insurance? Total household income?
-Thirty-two thousand.
I'll need copies of your tax returns.
-Yeah. So, what, we... we eligible, or what's up?
Well, it depends on what type of assistance. There's repair. There's temp housing. There's replacement housing.
-What about replacement?
Well, this type of assistance only happens in insular areas or remote locations
specified by FEMA. Unfortunately, the Ninth Ward isn't covered.
First, they flood us, then they pushing us out, then they buy all our land with those bullshit FEMA checks. Then they sellin' 'em to the casinos. That's just a fact.
