Strike is a young city drug pusher under the tutilage of drug-lord Rodney Little, who, when not playing with model trains or drinking Yahoo for his ulcer, just likes to chill with his brothers near the benches outside the project houses. When a night man at a fast-food restaurant is found with four bullets in his body, Strike's older brother turns himself in as the killer. Det. Rocko Klein doesn't buy the story, however, and sets out to find the truth, and it seems that all the fingers point toward Strike &, Rodney.


Pointless odyssey into urban hell... This movie was unclear, unfocused, and disjointed, and just when you thought a story was going to show up, the camera started shaking again in a documentary-like fashion. Lee obviously has some sort of vindictive vendetta, If you noticed, the cops in this movie were white, foulmouthed, and senseless, and the underbelly was depicted as minorities who were easily victimized and never at fault. You also might consider the fact that Lee's production company is called "Forty Acres and a Mule," which is an element quoting us on the heinous days of slavery. The only other Spike Lee "joint" I've seen was "She's Gotta Have it", a comedy about a woman and three obnoxious suiters in love with her. That film was filled with good performances and devoid of any racial stereotypes, and "Clockers' is the opposite. I'm obviously not a real fan of Spike Lee, but it is important, regardless of who you are, and what visions you destine to accomplish, to keep a story *interesting.*
