This was a great movie (writing/directing/producing). Allen Payne is a wonderful actor and he really gave a stellar performance in Bluehill Avenue. The real treat though was the awesome performances of the supporting cast of up and coming unknowns (Characters of E-Bone, Money and Simon). I have already seen the actors who played Money and Simon appear in other movies. Clarence Williams III always adds distinct flavor to any role he plays. Those of you who are 1970s movie buffs will recognize the character who plays Uncle Rob from one of the Blacula flicks from back in the day. Even though I am not elaborating on the rest of the supporting cast, they are all great (even the teens).
The movie was not predictable, which I appreciated. It did however remind me just a bit of "Jason's Lyric" and "New Jack City". Ingredients that made up the story consist of friendship, loyalty, love, betrayal, trust, self analysis, greed and power. The soundtrack was also enjoyable. The characters were very believable and definitely unforgetable. If you enjoy it or just want to know more...check out the website for more info on cast and behind the scenes at bluehillavenue.com.

By Andrew on Feb. 19 2004

Blue Hill Avenue is the story of 4 friends growing up in Roxbury (Boston). They start with peddling marijuana in high school, and end up as hard core crack dealers. Tristan (played by Allen Payne) is the star of the movie and the leader of the gang.
Throughout the movie, Tristan's family confronts him his dealing. During a particularly painful family incident, Tristan's father approaches Tristan and asks how could he end up a dealer when he came from such a good famliy. Tristan is at a loss for an explanation, and responds to his dad, "Because I'm good at it".
The film includes lots of action, perhaps a bit more violence than was really necessary for the story line. Blue Hill Avenue dares to show how a young man from a decent upbringing can get caught up in the wrong crowd, and how it impacts an otherwise decent family. Towards the end of the movie, Tristan acknowledges that his friends will be the end of him.
Blue Hill Avenue was actually filmed in Canada, in Saint John, New Brunswick. I live in Boston and was impressed how much the location passed for Boston, a good choice on the producer's part.

This movie bites off of so many other movies. There is very little that viewers of New Jack films/peliculas de Nuevo Joaquin haven't seen before. With the exceptions below:
1. Allen Payne is finally in a leading role. With the exception of "Jason's Lyric," he's almost always a bit player. As fine as he is, it's great seeing him front and center. But you can tell he's aging.
2. That adorable young actor from "Soul Food" is in this. He's a teenager now and I wish his career well.
3. That scary older actor from "Tales from the Crypt" and "Sugar Hill" is in this, so you know this movie is a dark one. But he scares me so much that I applaud his skills. Move over, Christopher Walkens!
4. This took place in Boston. With the exception of New Edition, the black community in that city is hardly brought up in the media. It's great to see this film as an exception. And I don't think this was filmed in Toronto: it actually looked like what I remember from the East Coast.
5. The main crew in this film are four African-American men of various sizes and complexions. They are well-dressed, well-shaved, and display a range of emotions as characters. I found this very visually pleasing. I think folks should see the film just for that.
Otherwise, this was just another flick about the rise and fall of druglords of color. The child actors look nothing like the adult actors they are supposed to represent. This film is second-rate, but that doesn't stop me from being glad I saw it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I came across it a couple of time while out looking for DVD's, but passed it up each time. Finally I decided I should give it a shot.
Boy am I glad I did, because this is a wonderful tale of how simple it is to have your whole life changed by one act or by saying or suggesting something......"What if we didn't smoke it all?" That's how easy it was to get it all started. The only problem is stopping something, generally isn't as easy.
I had my teenage son and niece watch this film and see from a spectators point of view, how silly it truly is to let you desire to fit in or you so called loyalty to friends bring you down. That we all should do what the pit of "our" stomach tells us to do, not what guilt or fear dictates.
I would recommend this to all with one bit of advice - "when watching anything that isn't based on a true story, take it for what it's worth. Remember....it's entertainment with a message.

FOUR FRIENDS BEGIN DEALING DRUGS IN ROXBURY, BOSTON. NEVER HAS A DIRECT TO VIDEO GANGSTA MOVIE BEEN THIS GOOD. THIS MOVIE DEFINITELY PROVES THAT ALLEN PAYNE CAN MAKE A GOOD LEADING ACTOR IN A MOVIE AND IT ALSO PROVES THAT ALLEN PAYNE IS ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED BLACK ACTORS IN HOLLYWOOD TODAY! THIS MOVIE HAS GOOD PERFORMANCES FROM EVERYONE INVOLVED. THE PLOT TWISTS ARE VERY CLEVER. IF YOU JUST LIKE THOSE GANGSTA MOVIES THAT HAVE RAPPERS IN IT, DON'T PICK THIS ONE UP. THERE ARE NO RAPPERS IN THIS MOVIE! BUT IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR ONE OF THE FEW GANGSTA MOVIES THAT ACTUALLY HAS AN INTELLIGENT PLOT TO IT, RENT OR BUY THIS MOVIE NOW! THIS MOVIE KILLS 90 PERCENT OF THE MOVIES THAT WENT TO THEATERS LAST YEAR!
