Despite directing, writing, and producing movies like Vengeance and Latin Kingz, Daniel Zirilli’s Pop Art Film Factory has been involved in the production of some horrible movies.

For an example, look no further than 15 To Life

Incompetent in just about everyway, 15 To Life may be a tad bit more ambitious than its genre counterparts, but that doesn’t make it any less painful to watch. Directed, written, and starring the same man, this is just a sloppy effort from a man who, to no one’s surprise, hasn’t been at the helm of a film since.

The pure idiocy of this film starts off right from the starting film footage. While it might seem like a nitpick, the newscaster using the term “black” despite “African American” being all that more apropos just shows the unprofessional aspect of the production. The entire thing revolves around whites screwing blacks, and with that, the plights of young, African American males. But by demonizing white people, creating one as a conniving warden, a second as a racist-slur yelling cop, and the last as a foolish documentary maker, he fails to make anything actually heard.

Not that I’d say my criticisms to Jones’ face. Jones is, after all, a huge black man. With a budget that obviously wouldn’t allow Tony “Tiny” Lister Jr. to be hired, Jones took the superficial route; he hired himself. But after all, the man played the “one-armed bandit” in Cyborg 3, so he’s more than qualified.

Yeah, Jones isn’t all that good of an actor. Nor is he a good writer. Not much in the directing department either.

That ambitious part I talked about earlier is in reference to the film’s documentary-with-in-a-movie plot that sees the Caucasian documentary filmmaker Lilly White (seriously) do a documentary on the three sons of convicted murderer Luther “Satan” Little (Jones), all going to jail for sentences of fifteen to life. In order to try and catch Little doing illegal activities, he’s placed into a cell with his sons, and White tries to delve into their lives in a rather bland fashion.

You figure that for what is supposed to be a semi-somber, urban drama, they would cut out the rap music at times. Nope, it’s still here, in all its ridiculously placed glory.
Besides for a couple nice lines, this is just horrible in every way.
