  • The latest in Spike Lee's Chronicles of Brooklyn series (which also include SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT, DO THE RIGHT THING, CROOKLYN, CLOCKERS, and HE GOT GAME), RED HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather's constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik's summer appears to be a total disaster-until he meets Chazz Morningstar, a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he'd ever imagined.

    He has the nerve to talk shizz about Tyler Perry... Tyler Perry employs more African Americans than Spike ever has.

    Wow. I expected so much more from Spike Lee. This is an 1:40 I wish I had spent asleep. Some of these performances were so poor I wondered if no one was paying attention when they were shot.

    I will say that spike gave the kids there first shot at acting professionally! also the man character is an awesome actor (given what he had to work with) and the dec was funny. Good move but ending sucked.
