It was a cool flick, honestly....I have to say that although the story of a mans life was intresting, and informative..........I was not all that impressed. Probably seen too many gangster rise and fall movies, where there is corrupted law inforcement. Denzel Washington, Russel Crowe, Common, Cuba Gooding Jr., Ruby Dee, Former Miss Puerto Rico Lymari Nadal.
1 quotable line I thought was cool. "The loudest one in the room is the weakest one in the room"

ya  know what they say............
"to each her own"
The story needed to be told, but I already figured Lucas out, off rip. Without giving "it" away, how hard is it these days to factor, dirty popo, atleast 1 beautiful women, and a host of activity surrounding the degrading treatment associated with the Black Poor American experinces as related to coming and going where successful gangsterism is concerned.
I've been told the story ample times, Lucas's details were different.

The basic thing is that he was discovered because of the coat his women bought him. Thats real. I guess erry Adam has his Eve.

The thing is they never would have known it was him until they saw him in mink at the fight. If he had just been sitting front row they probably would've figured he was one of them newfangled rich black men but when they saw the mink they realized something was up. Thats why Nicky Barnes always had the police on his ass. He was too flashy. No one would have ever thought the drug kingpin was a black man let alone a southern black man.
