We loved the acting, it was strong from pretty much all points. But after a while it seemed like it drifted into an afternoon school special, that was dealing with serious subject matter (riots/looting, fighting, etc). It did become predictable and wasn't a hard stretch to figure out what the ending was going to be, but even so, with the strong characters in the movie, who were quite believable, we did somewhat enjoy the movie and are glad that we had a chance to see it.
All and all, we would recommend seeing it, mainly based on the characters. Put it on your "to watch" lists this summer.
Many thanks to Level 33 Entertainment for allowing us to preview the Urban Hymn DVD.
