Director Statement

Mad As Hell is a different movie for me. I love action films, but this is more story driven. Cynda Williams is an absolutely TREMENDOUS talent. My hats off to her. The Original G-Man of Hip Hop plays the bad guy, Mac Goldie. G-Man blessed us with the title song "B Where U R". Gary Turner is an up and coming actor that is underappreciated. He did a fantastic job. My hats off to everyone who helped make this movie!

I based this movie off of two movies I love, Death Wish and Heat. Charles Bronson, Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro were all channeled during the shooting of this project. I hope you enjoy MAD AS HELL.
