Movie Review: ‘Inner City Rats’

Review by Lisa Payne

Two men discuss the robbery they are going to commit, then one has a better idea, let’s steal from the bodega, it goes wrong, one escapes, he gets knocked out by two other men on their way to a drug deal, this moves on to a gun deal, then kids dropping stuff off the roof at a party, ripping off tourists, and on and on it goes. Just like my run-on sentence.

Inner City Rats is a series of vignettes about the goings on in the seedy underbelly just below the surface, in the back streets and alleys of NYC that is so easy to get caught up with, and at the same time avoid.

It’s an interesting debut film for Sam Garcia Southern that moves along apace without missing a bear and has excellent acting by the ensemble cast with a distinctive visual style.
