I still cannot fathom whatever point Lee's trying to make here, or why he would derail his not-bad summer idyll with such a nuclear bomb.

Rating: 3/5 -- If you've not been to the good house for a while, you might feel like you've been held hostage to the word by Spike Lee. But if you've the patience, Lee has a rewarding payoff in store for you. Full Review

"Red Hook Summer" has so much life, so much verve. Spike Lee always makes movies you want to wrestle with, even if the rewards this time around aren't as worthwhile. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- This coming-of-age portrait provides one more instance of Lee as one of this country's finest cinematic regionalists. Full Review

Rating: D+ -- It comes off embarrassingly amateurish at times, but other times the sentimental moments will captivate you, but only for a moment. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- The story is static for about 90 minutes, then rises to action, but in a way that seems impromptu, either made up on the spot or ill-considered. Full Review

Product Description:

An Atlanta adolescent experiences a new side of life while spending the summer in Brooklyn with his grandfather, a fire-and-brimstone preacher who's determined to save his soul. Young Flik (Jules Brown) has never met his grandfather before now, and when his mother drops him off at the Red Hook housing project, the culture shock is overpowering. Depressed at the prospect of spending his cherished vacation without his friends while enduring the righteous ramblings of his grandpa Enoch (Clarke Peters), Flik resigns himself to a summer of boredom until he crosses paths with Chazz (Toni Lysaith), a spunky church girl with a unique outlook on life. Meanwhile, as the summer heat spikes and conflicts among the congregation ignite, Flik realizes that his summer vacation is about to get interesting.
