Why do Dope Dealers get Married and have kids

This movie is not that bad. What would one expect in a movie about a dope dealer selling his soul to the devil? The Devil and Daniel Webster? But what I found in the movie was a alternating view of the oft told tale of Mephistopheles. The view is that Mephistopheles was a collector of souls of the damned. And that is exactly, I am sure not intentionally, what this movie is about. Every dope dealer who has a name is killed because the main character makes a deal to be the biggest drug dealer in his city. I find the leading actor acted like he was in a comedy. The supporting characters were way more interesting. Ving Rhames you can tell is having a ball. Who could take this move seriously? It was a DMX /Scarface redux.

The deal hinges on the soon to be King dope dealers wife and child getting killed if he does not take the deal. So he lives a double life the wife and his kids has no idea about. In any case the movie is entertaining if you like gore and shot outs. And you can suspend reality for a for a hour and a half. If not stay clear. But it is not any worse then most of the garbage out there. Just to see Ving Rhames hamming it up and having a ball.

A whole lot of fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was one of those films that was great from start to finish. I have been a fan of Ryan Combs since the Straight out of Compton days and I have literally watched his growth from movies I found amusing, to films that I remember in my everyday life. King Of The Avenue is a fantastic character movie. You actually fell like your part of this crew of men who have one thing on there mind, becoming the king. It's fun to watch them elevate to the top crew, but really, that's when the movie starts. I know this is a independent, but I think this is one of the best roles I've seen Ving Rhames in. My girlfriend and I voted Ving Rhames as the last person we would want to run into in a dark alley, or a park on a nice summers day for that matter. Ving is awesome in this film.

Missed Opportunity

This one had potential to be a quirky, unearthly combination of the supernatural and gangsters. Think Innocent Blood (1992). Even done in a low-budget hack job it could have been quite a hoot. But...

The lead actor is quite a dead-serious voice-over embarrassment and the gangsters are less than Comic-Book enticing. Only the Demon from Hell and his creepy demeanor and slaughterhouse shenanigans add any fun to this, as the family in peril backdrop subtext is weak and mishandled to the point of distraction. It has a good "Twilight Zone" twist but it doesn't save it from Indie Movie indifference.

Worth viewing for the better, brutal parts and Horror Movie splatter. However it is the smarmy child protection and the "I will not raise a punk" inclusions that stall this one from becoming an overtly outrageous display of Grindhouse gory glory.
