Synopsis

In April 1992, following the notorious Rodney King verdict, the streets of Los Angeles became a battlefield, the backdrop to four personal intertwined stories. In Gold Mountain, Jeff Lee and his parents run Good Neighbor Liquor in South Central L.A. Theirs is an Asian family of "old world" values at odds with a modern world-cultures that are about to clash in ways they never imagined. In Caught in the Fever, a day at the mall for Manuel Alvarado, the eldest son of a poor Hispanic family, and his girlfriend Iris, spirals into a nightmare as they're drawn into the out-of-control frenzy of a violent afternoon. In Homecoming Day, Turner Coates returns to the South Central hood of his youth to visit his mother - a homecoming overshadowed by an inescapable threat. In Empty, Boomer Phillips and his fellow LAPD officers are in a South Central restaurant when Boomer receives the command from his dispatcher to get out of South Central-but the command comes too late. Boomer's already in too deep, and there's no escaping the chaos around him. The Rodney King verdict has been announced. The violence advances block by block. Now, in the aftermath of an outrage, the lives of the Lee family, Carlos and his friends (Caught in the Fever), Officer Phillips, and Coates and his mother will cross with stunning impact. Each one of them will be pushed to their limits. Each will have their strength tested and their spirit challenged as a day like no other erupts before the eyes of a nation. —Echo Bridge Home Entertainment.

    Tries very hard and pretty much succeeds.

    This film tries its hardest to deal with the LA Riots from all sides. itkind of fails a bit but mostly it's a great film. It's got Melvin VanPeebles in it, what mroe do you want? A proper late night TV film that I have now seen 3 times just bychance. Mario Van P is his usual SUPERHAM self and Luke Perryputs in a good performance as a "cop/Vanilla Ice from Cool as Icelookalike" and it's all good fun in a hard hitting issues based filmkind of way. I like the way they incorporated news footage. That works.The latino quarter of the film is the weakest cos the main kid sucksthe proverbials in a major way.Watch it, it's good.

    Presents all views of the riots

    It was a very good film in the way that it showed how the riots affected people from every perspective... the police officers being under fear of losing their life, the chinese boy afraid of losing the market store for which his family worked so hard, the poor latino boy who is carried away by the urge to provide his family with luxuries and the black man who is trying to survive the racial tensions. It's a very good movie and takes no side but rather shows how each race and each person in the situation suffered

    Excellent merging of characters

    This movie is about the L.A. riots stemming from the Rodney King incident. The movie is about how the four predominate races interact with each other during these riots. The whites, blacks, hispanics, and asians are the races involved. The way the director mingles the characters together at certain times is outstanding. For example in one scene you see 3 hispanics arguing, and in the background you see a police officer being surrounded by many people, and he is defending himself. Later, on the police officer's skit at the end he is in the same scene. A must see.
