  • 5 stars "True To The Game is an epic classic. It depicts loyalty,love,crime,adventure and courage. Columbus Short discovers redemption and reinvents himself. Nelsan Ellis has a stellar performance. Some individuals do the wrong things; for the right reasons. Composers, Patrick Guitarboy and T. Younger penned a priceless a timeless piece entitled, Happily Never After. Happily Never After does truly exist. The author,producers and writers did an excellent job. This is a must see film. It is definitely one-of-a-kind. ttwritesink"
