Thoughts on BET's Original Movie 'Gun Hill' (Starring Larenz Tate, Emayatzy Corinealdi) After Last Night's Debut?

Larenz Tate in BET Original Movie 'Gun Hill'

Last night, Wednesday, July 2, at 9pm ET/PT, BET Networks premiered the original movie, "Gun Hill," staring Larenz Tate, and directed by Reggie "Rock" Bythewood ("Biker Boyz").

In the film, Tate portrayed twin brothers, Trane and Bird, on opposite sides of the law: Trane, a cop, and Bird, a con. On one fateful night in New York City, Trane is killed. Bird assumes his identity and begins his own search for redemption. 

The film also featured Emayatzy Corinealdi, Michael Aronov, Phyllis Yvonne Stickney, Tawny Cypress and Aisha Hinds.

Consider it a backdoor pilot, as "Being Mary Jane" was for the network; Essentially, an audience "test' to determine whether to order it to series. So one can assume that if last night's ratings are strong (we haven't seen the numbers yet), and BET brass is convinced there's sufficiently enough interest in it as a series, then, like "Being Mary Jane," it'll become a series. This would explain the film's abrupt ending last night, leaving some wondering whether there would be a part 2. It was likely meant to be a cliffhanger, leaving you anticipating  what might be to come, in the form of a series.

Jai reviewed the film for S&A last fall, after its premiere at the Urbanworld Film Festival last year. In short, she dug it. Read her thoughts here, and then return to share yours in the comment section below.

Here's a preview of what you missed if you didn't watch it (I assume BET will air it again in the near future):

    I loved it I want to see more

  • Deana | July 27, 2014 3:05 AMReply

    I thought Gun Hill was great. Very surprising, emotional and excellent acting by Larenz Tate. It would be great to have a sequel but even better to have a serious,I really hope it gets turned into the series.

  • Kerri | July 27, 2014 1:20 AMReply

    Just watched on Netflix and loved it, but was disappointed with the 'to be continued' part. While I understand this was a 'test' to see if a series might be possible, I certainly hope that if a series isn't developed that there is at least a Part 2 to finish/complete the story.

  • angei | July 27, 2014 12:05 AMReply

    Two words
    Love Larenz!

  • marlo | July 26, 2014 9:45 PMReply

    I'd like to see the second part air and was very interesting and I can't stand when any good show ends without the full story being told and it would be a shame if it happened in this case

  • Felicia R | July 25, 2014 3:07 AMReply

    Just finished watching it on BET. Awesome!!!! Was sitting in my bed like: WTF?! They just gonna leave us hanging like that? Sequel or serious, BRING IT BACK!!!!

  • K Bell | July 25, 2014 2:25 AMReply

    I have watched the movie and I truly enjoyed it. Gun Hill rd is a place near and dear to my heart as this is the area I grew up in and Evander Childs HS is my alma mater. I would love to see this movie lead to a regular series and how Mr. Bythewood can keep us engaged and wanting more with a scripted drama series. An African American Police Crime Drama has not existed for a long time on tv since NY Undercover probably, however Gun Hill has taken the genre a step further and I want to see more . Lets hope BET fills the void and turns this into a regular series.

  • weonawe | July 25, 2014 1:33 AMReply

    First, let me say I love me some Larenz Tate. The movie was great. Please have BET bring it back as a sequel. Loved it. Can't wait for part 2.

  • Willie Stevenson | July 24, 2014 11:34 PMReply

    Tonight was my first time watching the movie. It was remarkable and deserves to continue. This could be a power series or a string of movies if played correctly. Great work looking for more to come.

  • Shanee | July 24, 2014 9:59 PMReply

    OMG!!!!!! I wasn't able to watch in July:( Just watched it and went looking everywhere for part 2 on Netflix, youtube you name it. To find out that it has not happened yet was so disappointing. Please BRING IT who do I have to write to. I truly was glued and cant wait for a conclusion and the series. I love Lorenz Tate he did a wonderful job. Make it happen!!

  • Mell | July 24, 2014 7:43 PMReply

    I am watching it now, finally. I thought additional shows were already forthcoming. Disappointed that it hasn't been determined. I do hope we get a good series.

  • A.J. Hargrave | July 24, 2014 3:51 PMReply

    I remember when this first aired on July 2nd and I was really intrigued by the entire show until it reached the climactic end. now I am basically sick to my stomach because I can't believe that Viacom has not agreed to let you do a part 2 to conclude this movie. I believe it should be given its own series and continue the story line. It would be interesting to see Larenz Tate continue in his role with all the surprising characters and great actors and actresses. I will say a prayer that this great work can continue through adoption of the series, or at least the completion of what you have started!

  • Reggie Rock | July 24, 2014 5:35 PM

    Prayer and hard work. That's how we get down. We'll know about sequels and series very soon. Thanks for the support. Please spread the word about TONIGHT for those who have not seen it.

    7:30 EST/ 6:30 CT /4:30 PST (with Direct TV and Dish). 7:30 (with Time Warner) Check listings. Thanks again.

    First let me say, after watching the premiere of Gun Hill back in June (?), then seeing part1 in the description and to be continued at the end, I thought ATT screwed up the programming & I was pissed! Now,  after watching Just KeKe and seeing the announcement for tonight's airing of Gun Hill,  I thought, "Finally, Part 2" #NOT  I decided to Google it because I'm thinking to myself, "There is no way that I have missed part 2 this many times..." that's how I came across this site. Now after reading that part 2 is not even made yet, I am so pissed! I really think this is very poor marketing, poor consideration of your audience, a disservice, whatever... I don't even know what words to use to properly articulate how I feel about it. Why wouldn't you just leave it open ended, like a movie that simply leaves suspenseful implications that there may be more to come, rather than say "part 1" in the description and post "to be continued" across the screen, if there is no follow up??? #SLOPPY You made a great film that has the potential for more, but you made a grave error, by doing the most, as the kids say. Those two,  seemingly small errors, actually lessened the quality of the film. And now knowing the truth of no follow-up, it comes off real thirsty. I'm over it!  What separates the big boys from the little ones, knowing that less is more :/ I wish you all the best, but heed the warning.... Sometimes we get in the way of what God has for us because we are too busy trying to control things. When you live by the Spirit, you are not bound to the laws of this world. #TrustYourGifts

  • Nabiyah | July 25, 2014 12:45 PM

    Thank you for your response Mr. Rock. You misinterpreted what I meant by no-follow up. I did not say there will "not" be a follow-up. I said there "is" no follow-up, as in, currently made to aire. This is why it is important to read everything. Context is just as significant to the writer's intention as the word(s) standing on its own, but you know that already. I should probably have said, "after now learning that part 2 has yet to be made, I'm pissed!" When I read your comment, "Part two exists in my head. Has not been shot yet." I was like what?! #SoDisappointed - Yes,  I liked it that much! IMHO, the terms "part 1" & "to be continued" is reserved for pieces that can deliver timely with a conclusive piece. As aforementioned, leaving the ending as an implicit possibility of more to come was just enough & it increased the quality of its feel. You did that brilliantly, but then tainted that quality by adding, "to be continued" without an actual part 2, in hand, to deliver timely, which was very inconsiderate of Gun Hill viewers. Those two, seemingly simple things made the film feel incomplete, when actually without that verbiage it could stand on its own, if nothing else was to follow. I know, in your head, there was more to the story & you wanted to finish it, but leaving the audience to its own imagination until you were ready, is nothing new. BET or whomever may pick this up, but many of the viewers are disappointed because WE were left hanging. I'm just being honest. You have to protect the integrity of your work. Do not let others sabotage your vision & labor with seemingly "minor" details. I pray that Gun Hill becomes more (part 2, series, big screen, etc.) and any other visions that come through you will also become manifest & available for the world to see. You are a very gifted writer/director & your work should be acknowledged & shared. What I said in my first post I meant, no malice was a part of what I conveyed. People look at films like Gun Hill (TV or big screen) & they want to put it in a box. They view it as small & mainly an Urban interest only. They expect people to look at it on "its face" and find nothing deeper and there is nothing necessarily wrong with that.  However, there are some, like myself,  that will see it as something more, and connect to the deeper psychology, the undertow, that's available for examination if they dare to see it. It's a gift when someone takes their time to give true feedback into their experience, giving  something real to chew on (constructive criticism), whether you agree or not,  & the receiver allows it to stretch them. Your work speaks beyond the framing of the institutional paradigms that seek to confine it.  Like I said before, "Trust Your Gifts" and trust WHO gave them to you! Reminder: Galatians 5:18  :)

  • Reggie Rock | July 24, 2014 5:26 PM

    Thank you very much for watching GH and for writing in to S&A. You're right. Sometimes we get in the way of what God wants. And sometimes we obey. I hope you and I are BOTH doing the latter. You are saying the show won't have a follow up. I'm saying the show (like all pilots) is under consideration. We serve a powerful God. And I know his word is final.

  • Jerri | July 23, 2014 5:48 PMReply

    I really liked it. Great story line, action, suspense, especially never coming back to what happened to the brother and the to be continued at the end. I hope there is a sequal to this.

    I admit I wasn't feeling it in the beginning. Seemed too farfetched that he could just assume his brothers identity considering how different their lives were. But a good job was done tying up those ends and making it believable. By the end of the movie I was all in. Would definitely watch this as a part two or a running series.

  • Reggie Rock | July 24, 2014 10:22 AM

    John, thanks for the critique. I'll be sure to make sure it's not too easy for Larenz. On one level, the central question is, "Can Bird pull it off?" On another level, the central question is "Can someone who is not redeemable become redeemed?" Thanks for watching. I greatly appreciate it.

    "[Hey Up In The Balcony] I understand your skepticism"

    Whatsup Reegie, in response to your understanding of my little trip down skeptical lane, I'll defer to the words of Billy Crystal's "Jazz Man" character... "Can you dig that, I knew that you could"

    Yeah man, we're in there. And, to be clear I wasn't accusing you of being the orchestrator nor the pen behind the multiple voices. Nope, that was not my intent. In my defense, as my friend Mr. Black Waldorf said, most of the comments had a similar tone. The cadence, pace, vernacular, length and even the punctuation is "oddly" similar. To my knowledge that odd(ness) if you will, has only happened one other time @S&A. Someone was promoting a webseries. The comments (back-to-back-to-back) started flooding in. Although not nearly has many comment as this post, but they too were... well... you know.

    In regards to you responding to the comments in question, my hat is tipped in your direction. I love seeing the "man of the hour" giving back the love. I envision it as a smart farmer who knows his harvest/bounty is directly related to how well he fertilizes his crop.

    Consequently, Mr. Reggie Rock, you're not only a good director and promoter, you're a smart farmer as well. And, apparently you're a great family man, too. Well, at least I've not read about you and Daisy Sue running off to the hideaway hotel. :-)

    p.s. Tell Ms. Bythewood the fellas said hello.

  • Reegie Rock | July 17, 2014 10:08 AM

    Hey Up In The Balcony - - I did not know what I was initially reading. Thought it was a writing sample at first. In any event, you're a skilled writer. I'm sure you already know that.

    In regards to promoting Gun Hill, I have asked people to go the BET site, search for GH and leave a comment. Am I recruiting friends and supporters to write in to Shadow and Act and then directing the same supporters to the BET site? No. My supporters have already been directed. They already know what to do. Is BET reading this page? I don't know. If I was certain they were, I would not bother asking people to go to their site. That would be a waste of time. I began responding to comments on this page unsolicited by S&A or anyone else. Just as I respond to comments on my writer/director page on FB. This is an opportunity to connect to people who responded to GH. I'm sure this is more of a treat for me than those writing in. I understand your skepticism. Not much I can do about that I suppose. The promoter in me wants everyone on this page, to send their comments in to the BET site, search Gun Hill and leave a comment. The artist in me appreciates the opportunity to connect with people who have nothing to do with the production. Up In The Balcony, thanks for your comments and for showing us your mad writing skills.

Lorenz Tate is starring on a new show on Thursday night. RUSH!!! Perfect timing for airing this film. I have to know how it all will be played out the suspense is killing me.

    I had been looking forward to the movie for couple of weeks then somehow missed it. It came on again last night and I was so excited. I recorded it and watched without commercial interruption. OMG! I loved it! I knew I would because it starred Larenze Tate! He is absolutely amazing! I can't wait to see what comes next!!! Please keep up the awesome work!!!

    Recorded it July 2 to watch later. It came back on July 12 and I sat down to watch it. Great movie. Found this website trying to find out when Part II starts. Got to know "which brother was he trying to kill".

  • Reggie Rock | July 13, 2014 9:35 AM

    Thanks, Sharon. Glad you enjoyed it. Means a lot to the GH team.

    I loved the cliffhanger. I was like OMG!!! Then I see to be continued & hurried up to jump online to see when the continuation was coming back on. I don't see anything info about that. However the story has me intrigued to see more. The movie overall was exceptional. I truly enjoyed it. I will be on the look out for the follow up or series (crossing fingers) Good job cast & crew.

  • Reggie Rock | July 13, 2014 9:40 AM

    I absolutely loved the movie. Lorenz Tate and Aisha Hinds and the other actors also. I couldn't walk away from the television until commercials came on because I didn't want to miss any part of the movie.

  • Reggie Rock | July 13, 2014 9:44 AM

    Great to hear. Thank you! Larenz, Aisha, Phyllis Stickney and everyone else - wow. Love my cast.

    This was an amazing movie if I do say so myself. I found myself not wanting to move away from the t.v. for nothing just so I would not miss nothing. I loved how it had me guessing as to what was going to happen next too. I can't wait to see what is next because the way it was ended has me on the edge of my seat wanting more. Big ups to the writer, actors, and producer/s I have been looking for a movie like this and you all gave it to me. Hurry with the rest please. Thank you.

  • Reggie Rock | July 13, 2014 9:47 AM

    Alright, Robin. Will hurry. But light us up on social media. It will help. I appreciate the feedback.

    I really really absolutely enjoyed this movie. Reggie Rock did a superb job in directing this movie. This is now my new favorite movie with Larenz Tate. Hewas so amazing. Please make this a series. You got surfing the net looking for part 2. Glad I decided to stay in tonight. We'll worth it!

  • Reggie Rock | July 13, 2014 9:49 AM

    Larenz has a tremendous body of work. Happy to have Gun Hill be apart of his legacy. Thank you for watching.

    Reggie, truly amazing. I miss New York Under Cover by the way. I'm a 80's baby and loved hearing hip hop and R&B every week on one of my favorite shows, it really set the stage for each episode and made it feel relevant. Keep it up and hope this becomes a series. Well done sir!

  • Reggie Rock | July 13, 2014 9:52 AM

    Yeah, it was fun highlighting popular songs on New York Undercover. For Gun Hill, I want to find hot, up and coming artists. Hope to break new music. Thanks for the encouraging words.

    BRAVO---What an outstanding performance by Larenz Tate and others. I recorded it and will be watching again Saturday if it is showing. The action was incredible and there was never a dull moment. It was not long enough for it is movies like these have you anticipating the next move. It seem so real and did not seem fake at al. Please, please give me more!!!!!

  • Reggie Rock | July 13, 2014 10:00 AM

    Bulinda - - I appreciate that. Hard thing about a pilot is all the things you need to set up to make a series work. Looking forward to just building on what we have layed down. Need that Social Media push. Anything you could do would help. Very happy you enjoyed our first chapter. Thank you.

  • Reggie Rock | July 13, 2014 10:03 AM

    Marcus - - Thanks for checking us out. Learned a lot from making this first episode. If/when we become a series, check us out. Will try and keep you invested.
