Being a fan of Spike Lee I think this is one of his more underrated film SUCKERFREE. I’ve seen nearly all of Spike Lee’s film some I liked more than others, but I liked this one and enjoyed the lesson on the development of San Francisco and the Bay Area. It was also nice to see Spike shoot another city other than New York. The story aspect left me wanting some kind of answer or form of closure and then again this is a Spike Lee joint. Overall I enjoyed the film, I’d recommend it to select friends due to subject matter. So for SUCKER FREE I give it 4 stars.
