Review by Richard Caldwell
Nothing says love like a trip home to visit your family. A good time can either be had or ruined by the experience of the moments. How hard is one willing to work to help their family survive? Are you willing to stay and deal with the conditions of the environment to better your family? “The Trap” is a film that tethers with that very question.
Sonny is a talented culinary artist. He left his Georgia surroundings to pursue his career. After receiving an offer to head a new restaurant, Sonny returns home to visit his family. Various comical instances occur while he’s home connecting with his roots. This sets the tone for the many adventures to come in the film.
Overall, I enjoyed this film. Not only was it funny, but also meaningful. The film has purpose and finds its feet after a slow start. Loretta Devine, Queen Latifah, Clifford “T.I.” Harris and Mike Epps all star in this film. “The Trap” is definitely a film worth watching. It’s currently available for streaming online via Netflix.
