"CHECK IT is a powerful and electrifying film, full of characters who exude wisdom, authenticity, and bravado. Their lives beg telling, but this is only half the story." - Jude Dry, indieWire
"CHECK IT is a fascinating and comprehensive ethnographic portrait of inner-city youth that may inspire conversation and action without offering easy answers or artificial sentiments." - John Fink, The Film Stage"
