The basis of this film is a real story that happened in the early 90s. 3 March 1991, four white police officers beat Rodney king, the black guy left behind speeding. The court on the cops lasted more than a year. And at the end of April 1992, the court found them. innocent, causing a black neighborhood rebelled and staged a riot at all of Los Angeles, smashing all on its way beating, but sometimes killing whites. The rebellion lasted from 29 April 4 may 1992.

Many were heard about this story earlier. And I read somewhere, and the film the Damned season with Kurt Russell actions have been associated with the so-called L. A. riot. The film Los Angeles fire (I looked under the name Gang Los Angeles) was a long time ago, with a year ago, the surprising that still not been a single review on this movie.

In the film there is a speech about the black woman is Millie who is raising several children, which are for her foster. And when starting a riot, some of children are in the epicenter of the riots. Millie rushes to save the children, and help her. the only white in a black neighborhood guy Obi.

Liked the movie, even there, the film touched. Touched by their desire to show how the girl desperately rushes to protect other people's children, which became for her own. Not afraid of the police and that going on the street she catches the Inferno. The atmosphere transmitted from the movie is just awesome. I experienced with the heroine of all events, her emotions, I could feel on their skin. Long not exciting drama.

The film is brought to directly to the rebellion long enough. The course of the film often seem the news on TV, which told about the court case of Rodney king. In the first hour us shows the life of Millie and her foster children. Nothing happens, just the pranks of children, theft of the store, meeting with into which falls one of the children Millie. But these are unrelated to the revolt of the events of the not cause boredom. We just observe that has brought these guys to involvement riots. Next, the same as interesting to see the relationship between Milli and the Obi, the more so they are played by awesome actors Halle berry Daniel Craig. And coupled with good camera work and a competent script, the film is just not could get bad.

I advise you to watch fans of movies based on real events. The film slowly wobbles, but it is worth the wait. Someone starts to belittle the movie, but it is your business. I have this story, the case of Rodney king and me loved that movie.
